Icom Tranciever CAT Interface products and fall into the following categories:

  • Icom CAT (CI-V) interfaces to allow remote control of your transceiver via your PC.  
  • Icom CAT (CI-V) and audio interfaces giving full access to modes such as PSK31

The CAT cables are compatible with a huge range of Icom Equipment. See the individual product descriptions to check which interface is right for your transceiver. 

You will need 
suitable software such as Ham Radio Deluxe, MixW, N1MM and many more that allow the interface to be powered via you PC's RS232 port. If you are uncertain as to software compatibility, use the Contact Us page and we will be more than happy to advise.

On the RS232 interfaces, your chosen software will need to be able to set the RS232 port DTR line high 100% of the time to provide the interface with power and toggle the RTS line to actuate the transceiver PTT.

The USB versions of the interfaces are powered from the the USB bus and will be compatible so long as your software supports the transceiver.

If your PC does not have an RS232 port, the interfaces are fully compatible with USB to RS232 adapters. XGGCOMMS recommends using adapters with the FTDI chipset for best reliability.

I accept payment via major Credit and Debit Cards and by Paypal. When you purchase products and check-out, you will be taken to a Paypal payments page where you may choose to pay by credit/debit card or by Paypal.

 



Digimode-1-Icom

Product: Digimode-1-Icom


USB CAT Control and Audio Interfacing of your Icom Transceiver allowing you to fully utilise software such as Ham Radio Deluxe, Echolink, PSK31, DM780, N1MM Logger, MixW and many more.


Complete plug-and-play solution. The interface is full wired for your PC and transceiver. Just follow the instructions to download the FTDI drviers, configure up your CAT/Digimode software and you are up and running.

The Tx/Rx audio signals are galvanically isolated by Bourns 600:600 Ohm transformers and the hardware PTT is opto-isolated. The USB section of the interface uses the highly reliable FTDI Chipset and provides a virtual comm port allowing full CAT control and hardare PTT keying over the RTS signal. 


With this interface, you will be up and running on PSK31, Echolink, SSTV, Pactor, Packet or any mode that requires CAT control and Tx/Rx Audio Interfacing between your PC Soundcard and Radio within minutes. 


Cable length is 1.8m from the USB and audio connectors to the interface box. The cables from the interface box to the transceiver is 0.6m. The box is very compact at 80x40x20mm making it ideal to hide away behind the PC or transceiver using no desk space.

Icom Transceivers either have an 8 pin or 13 pin Din accesory connector. Use the Options drop down menu to select the cable you need.
