Connecting with fldigi

USB Interface



ICOM Remote access with RS-BA1


The application and documentation can be downloaded from here:

A purchased licence key is required to activate the RS-BA1 application.

Changed USB cables, update the cp2101 driver to the latest 26/11/2018, update IC7300 to latst FW 7300_130. Radio set to 115200, port set to 115200 and it will only comment at 9600.

The RS-BA1 Ver 2.10 has a "Connect Setting" Tab. If I set it to anything other than 4800 9600 or 19200 it will give "Communication failed. Cannot access Radio." the solution is as follows:

To use the spectrum scope with RS-BA1 :

Icom RS-BA1 Manuals:
RS-BA1 Remote Control Software - Quick Reference Guide

If the application is already installed and your try to install again without explicitly deleteing it you get this obscure message:



The Settings for WSJT are:

These setting are incompatible with RS-BA1 and cannot be changed remotely. then the remote wouldn't work. That is how I ended up using the two conections. I wanted to be able to use the remote software for voice and switch over to remote desktop to do digital.
