Has anyone used this module on an IC 7410/7600 for reducing output to 10 watts during tuning auto antenna tuner.
I've tried to contact W2ENY on his E Pay contact point but it states he is receiving bulk enquiries and doesn't allow contact.
The advert lists IC 706, 7200, 7400, 746, 756, 7100, 7300 but I cant fathom that the construct of the 7410/7600 aren't similar.
Appreciate any assistance!
  regards Ross.

What tuner?

LDG, and SGC (and I think MFJ) make cables to use their tuners with ICOM radios.  Even Elecraft KAT500 has input for ICOM ATU signal.

Do you mean the rig's internal tuner or an external tuner?

he must mean external.  Because my 7300 tunes its internal tuner with very low power, I believe it to be less than 5 watts.

When I am on 30 meters FT8 and I need the external autotuner I check it with low power by running the PO slider down to make sure the tuner remembered the frequency and is green lighted,  and then run the slider back up.

Interestingly, my IC-756Pro3 tunes at whatever power it is set to when using the internal tuner. Only when connecting an external tuner (e.g. my MFJ-929) with iCOM interface cable, does the rig change mode (to CW or RTTY, I can't remember) and reduce its power (to 10W). The W2ENY device would tell my rig that an external tuner is connected, which would prevent using the internal tuner. That device also should change my rig's mode and reduce power to 10W but I don't have one to verify it. I was initially interested in the device if it would force the rig to change mode and reduce power for tuning when using the internal tuner, but it can't work that way.

My pro3 works the same way, but the 7300 is different.   The 7300's internal tuner is not as wide range as the 756pro3 either, although both say 3 to 1.  The 7300 IS 3 to 1 unless in emergency mode, but the pro3 is about 5 to 1.  In emergency mode (50 watt max) the 7300's internal tuners is wider still, not quite sure but I think it is closer to 10 to 1. In any case it will tune some really bad modes.

Good to know about the 7300, thanks for that detail. Could be one in my future (you can't have enough radios, right? Smiley). Will be interesting to see how the 7610 tuner operates.
