Re: Icom 706MKIIG Setup #ptt #icom

 

This a known issue with the IC-706 and some other early CI-V radios.  Depending on the program, there are other solutions.  For example, fldigi and direwolf support keying using GPIO on the Raspberry Pi, which in turn is wired to the Mini DIN-6 jacks on the DRAWS™ HAT.  Other programs support VOX based keying or using lines on RS-232 (http://www.xggcomms.com/userimages/Icom_IC_Cable_1.pdf) or Parallel ports.

Has anybody had any success with setting up and getting operational with a Icom 706 series? I'm having some headway made with limited CAT control but no PTT. Anyone have a work around getting PTT operational?
