– (source: icom releases)

The configurable range of the CI-V address has changed to between 01h and DFh

While transmitting in the CW mode, or if the Break-in function is ON, the transceiver transmits CW code when the PC sends this comman, etc.

A new feature, the Time-Out Timer (CI-V) function is added to the Others Set mod. Turns the Time-Out Timer function ON  (3, 5, 10, 20 or 30 minutes) or OFF. Increased security: If a continuous transmission exceeds the selected time period,  this function will cut off the transmission, to prevent a prolonged transmission. (default: OFF)
[Note]: This function will be activated only when you transmit using CI-V commands, or pushing [TRANSMIT] on the transceiver!

About the Remote * control system:
An RS-BA1® remote control system consists of at least one PC, which is used as a Base station (Server) and at least one PC, which is used as a Remote station (Client). Both PCs have to be connected with a network. [NoteClick the Remoting a Icom Radios picture to enlarge

[Note] 29.11.20113 *Icom Update Ver.1.50 RS-BA1 and IC-7800 Ver. 3.00 *
The IC-7800 (Upgrade model Ver.3.00) has built-in RS-BA1 base station function. Base station PC is not required (Ethernet cable CI-V+audio) – The IC-7800 (upgrade model) or new IC-7100 can wake-up from standby mode via the RS-BA1.

Radios are physically connected to the Base station, and the Remote station can operate the radios through the network. In the remote control system, CI-V commands, control commands such as “Connect” and “Disconnect,” and audio are exchanged between a Base station and a Remote station, through their Remote Utilities.

Most functions and modes of your transceiver, including interference rejection functions and IF filter settings, can be controlled. Also, S-meter and SWR can be observed – Rx Voice recording function available and more.
