Icom IC-756PROII Connection to option/peripheral units
HF/50MHZ, 1kW linear amplifier
Interface for digital mode
To use a personal computer to operate the digital modes (SSTV, PSK31, BAUDOT RTTY, etc.), it is necessary to install the following interface.
The IC-756PROII is equipped with a digital IF filter that may narrow the receive passband range to 50Hz making it possible to select and receive only one station, even when it is used in PSK31 mode.
If a filter width of 500Hz or less is selected the receive passband filter is activated to avoid interference while the transceiver receives SSB-D (SSB data mode).
Refer to the instruction manual or help file contained in the 3rd party software prior to use.
This circuit connects the input and output through transformers to prevent RF feedback and to isolate the transceiver from the computer.
External control unit for voice memory keyer
When a properly constructed control circuit is connected to the microphone connector, it is possible to control the transmission of the CW memory keyer (M1 to M4) and DVR (T1 to T4). This also makes it possible to transmit the memory keyer and voice memory while displaying the scope.
Installation of UT-102 optional Voice Synthesizer Unit
The UT-102 is capable of announcing S-meter level, frequency, and operating mode in English (on Japanese). It is possible to select voice speed (fast/slow).
A personal computer may be used to control the frequency, operating mode, VFO/memory status, etc. via its serial port, using the Icom Communication Interface V (CI-V).
When the optional CT-17 (CI-V level converter) is connected, it is possible to control up to 4 Icom Transceivers Receivers with a personal computer. A wide variety of 3rd party software applications may be used to provide automated logging and control of your radio.
