IP Remote Control Software


Remote Base Operation

Whether users are in another room, home or state, the RSBA1 allows users to operate their ham shack with only an IP connection. Version 2 of RSBA1 adds more features to the software, making interoperability between transceivers such as the IC-7610 or the IC-9700 interface simpler. The recent additions include:

  • Rx Voice recording function
  • [MUTE] button
  • RIT tuning knob and ΔTX functions
  • SUB dial
  • Dualwatch operation and dual spectrum scopes with waterfall functions * can be used on a remote PC (RS-BA1 can be used with single receiver transceivers too).

*Dualwatch and dual spectrum devices are only for the IC-7851, IC-7850 and IC-7610. The spectrum scope functions (single receive) are compatible with the IC-7300 and IC-9700.

Main and Sub Spectrum Modes

Remote Control Interface

Features in Both Version 1 & 2

  • Connect with real-time operation with low latency and high quality audio over an IP network.
  • Remote power ON/OFF function wakes up the radio from standby mode
  • Several separate windows for CW keyer settings, voice memory, SSB passband settings for both transmit and receive, and filter settings.
  • Slider control or tuning knob control screens are selectable for RF power, CW pitch, RF gain, and SQL and AF level.

Connecting your Icom Transceiver

The IC-7610, IC-9700, IC-7851, IC-7700 include built-in network function, therefore only an Ethernet cable is needed.

Transceiver Connections over Ethernet

Connect the IC-705 to a PC over a local Wi-Fi network. Transceiver Connections over Wi-Fi

Connect the IC-7300, IC-7100 and other units to a PC with a USB cable and the input/output audio signal and CI-V command is sent through the USB cable. Transceiver Connections over USB

Depending on the transceiver, some functions or modes cannot be used, or an update to the firmware is needed.

Remote Control USB Encoder

The optional RC-28 utilizes the same tuning knob and encoder used on Icom HF radios, providing a tactile option for the RS-BA1 software. The encoder includes a PTT and two user-programmable function keys. The RC-28 is not a standalone control for Icom radios and may only be used with the RS-BA1 software.
