Hi Robert, I'm not sure on the CT-16 or equivalent, but I do have a couple of circuits I can share with you that will provide CI-V control from your PC. I have not built any of these, but they look fairly straightforward:
I think you can use the MAX232 or two transistor interface.
I've also attached a schematic for another interface that someone else shared with me as well.
I'd be curious to know if anyone is using two 706's autonomously with PC control for sat work. I would also think you may be able to take two of the aforementioned circuits or equivalent and be able to accomplish the same thing?
Hope that helps.

I am considering using a Icom CT-16 Sat Interface with two IC-706MKIIG radios. I do not have a CT-16 and want to know if this is the best route or are there other after market interfaces or software that can be used or plans for a homebrew interface. Hard to find a used CT-16 so far on the internet. I assume that I will also need a Icom CT-17 Level Converter or one of the equivalent models out there made by other hams. Appreciate any advice. 73, Robert W6RQR _______________________________________________ Sent via [email protected] Opinions expressed are those of the author. Not an AMSAT-NA member?
