The Icom R8500 has a DB25 RS-232 port on the rear panel. This facilitates direct connection to a PC.
The ICOM CT-17 CI-V Level Converter would be required to connect the R8500 and other Icom transceivers simultaneously to a personal computer RS-232C port. In fact, up to four Icom CI-V receivers or transceivers can be connected via the CT-17 at once! However it cannot control more than one R8500.
The CT-17 comes with a DC power cord and mini jumper cable (to connect to the R8500). The user must supply a serial cable to the computer, a 12 VDC power source and software. The CT-17 includes the Data Format and Command Table for those who wish to write their own software.
Please note that some items shown in the above illustration are optional.
