Icom 706mk11g antenna switch and ci-v problem
« on: 2022-06-13, 10:13:44 »
Hi is it possible to split the ci-v signal from the Icom 706? I am using the rrc antenna switch which automatically switches the antennas when the ci-v is connected to the rrc 1258 radio, but I need the ci-v connected to the computer for my log book. FT8 etc
How do I share the ci-v data please?

you connect a CI-V interface to Radio-RRC com2 (1332-CI-V) and the PC to Control-RRC com2 (or USB).

when you setup the AS-1289 to connect to the Radio-RRC over IP (CI-V protocol) the sharing will be handled automatically

Hi Mike, yes of course, I wasn't thinking straight. My setup is a little different the main PC is at the radio site and digital modes and logging are done through Teamviewer. I have to minimise wires at the remote site, otherwise I would have my 706 head unit and cable with serial/usb for the ci-v, audio in and out and possibly a ptt. As I have it now 1 cable to the head unit which is clipped onto a laptop screen neat and tidy and works well, but wish the antenna selection could be automatic as then I would not need the laptop for voice qsos.
Thanks
John
