Order it from Mama China.

You will be satisfied.

The ones that can't get it to work are usually computer stupid, get frustrated and cry about the cable.

For about $10 you have what you need for programming and CIV control. This is what I use:

IC-7000 cable | eBay

You still need a sound card interface for digital modes...

Trying to learn something here..

Is this a direct connection from a PC to the IC-7000 or PC to the C-17 level converter?

Thanks

I have one from RadioShack that I use for my IC-7000. It is Model #20-546, and cost $34.99, has a USB to 3.5mm connector (either stereo or mono via an adaptor jumper). The old version (20-047) came with a Driver CD, but the new one requires downloading from the Internet. Hope that helps.

73,
Mike

After I bought a cable from China, I will never do that again. They said it was 6 ft long; it was only 3 ft long. Said it would work with my radio, it didn't. I bought one from 'Affordable Radio' for a few more bucks; but it was all that it claimed to be.
I recommend them:

6' USB CI-V CT-17 CAT Cable Icom IC-756 IC-7000 IC-7800 | eBay
