Icom CAT control and Digital mode interfaces to use software such as Ham Radio Deluxe, FLDigi, WSJT-X to operate PSK31, FT-8, JT9, JT-65, Echolink and many other AFSK modes.

 

We offer a large range of interfaces to ensure maximum compatibility with modern and older PCs and digimode software. You can also choose to use your PCs internal sound card to generate/decode your Digimode signals or to use an external sound card interface to free up your PCs sound card for normal use. We use icons shown below to guide you to the best choice for your equipment setup.

  Suitable for any AFSK and Digital mode such as FT8, JT9, PSK31, WSPR ect. Perfect for use with WSJT-X, FlDigi, Ham Radio Deluxe (DM780), Echolink and many others. Please note that some of these applications offer enhanced functionality when you also have CAT control of the radio.
  The interface has a built in external USB Sound Card based on C-Media CM108 chip. This frees up your PCs internal sound card for normal windows functions. The interface has a built in PTT function and can be used without a CAT interface.
  The interface gives you CAT control of your transceiver via a built in USB Comm port. CAT control allows you to set/get the frequency and mode of your transceiver. The interface used the highly reliable FTDI UART comm port chipset.
  The interface gives you CAT control of your transceiver using "older" PCs legacy RS232 comm port. Also suitable if you use a USB to RS232 adapter. CAT control allows you to set/get the frequency and mode of your transceiver.

USB CAT Control and isolated audio interfacing of your transceiver allowing you to fully utilise software such as Ham Radio Deluxe, WSJT-X, FLDigi to control your transceiver and allow you to operate many digital modes such as PSK31, FT8, JT9, JT65 and Echolink.

Complete plug-and-play solution. The interface is fully wired for your PC and transceiver. Just follow the instructions to download the FTDI drivers, configure your CAT/Digimode software and you are up and running in no time.

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.

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 Connector Type drop-down menu to select the interface you need.

 Digimode-3-Icom $66.00





External USB Sound Card isolated audio interface allowing you to operate many AFSK digital modes such as PSK31, FT8, JT9, JT65 and Echolink. Fully plug and play. Simply plug the USB cable into your PC and the Data plug into your transceiver.

Perfect with digital mode applications such as DM780, WSJT, FLDigi, Echolink etc.

The interface uses the C-Media CM108 USB Audio Chipset and most modern operating systems already have the driver pre-installed. The advantage of this interface is your PCs normal soundcard is not tied up for Digital mode operations. As you now have a separate and dedicated soundcard for your Digital Mode working, you can independently set the Tx/Rx audio levels leaving normal PC sound unaffected.

The interface is fully galvanically isolated between PC and Radio. The Tx/Rx audio signals are isolated by Bourns 600:600 Ohm transformers and the hardware PTT is opto-isolated. The PTT is keyed by an internal VOX circuit in the interface.

Cable length is 1.5m 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.
