I prefer HRD, far more than rig control. I used HRD 5 and vista to control my IC746. The rig interface cable should be isolated from the radio to prevent all types of RF horrors.
I bought a cable off a popular auction site, but if you are crafty you can likely make the interface, there are many schematics on the web for it.

OK ! Thanks very much !I will try HRD , I will use USB cable to connect the radio and  do something to prevent RF interference .IC-746 is a good rig ,I nearly buy it ,but I didn't have so much budget.Also IC-746 is stop production ,it's difficult to buy a new one.

I also use HRD to control my 746Pro.  I purchased the USB control cable off of ebay.  You can also use DXlabs software.

Yes ,I will try HRD and  DXlabs .But I found that several edition of HRD cann't suppoprt IC-7200.I hope I have a 746PRO so that HRD will support .

The DXLab Suite supports the IC-7200. Here's a screen shot showing Commander's Main and Bandspread windows; Commander is the Suite's transceiver control component. Note

  • - the display of both VFOs
  • - the "quick split" buttons in the VFO B panel
  • - the frequency-dependent settings (optionally) shown for my AL-1200 amplifier and ATR-30 tuner
  • - the control of transceiver functions such as filter width, pass-band tuning, noise reduction, twin-peak filter, AF and RF Gain, Keyer speed, etc.
  • - the bandspread window's highlighting of ZL2IFB as an active LotW participant

You'll find step-by-step configuration instructions for transceiver control here. Step-by-step instructions for connecting your IC-7200 to your PC and configuring DXLab for soundcard PSK and RTTY operation with your IC-7200 can be found here.

All components of the DXLab Suite are free, and available via  www.dxlabsuite.com .

Here I am working the CW pileup with my IC-7200 as 8P9RY. With nothing but a USB cable required for transceiver control, PSK, and AFSK RTTY operation, the IC-7200 is a great transceiver for this style of operation!

HRD 5 shows the IC-7200 in the interface menu. Used is not a bad way to get a 746, they seem to last quite well. With all the digital technology out now I would likely buy a more modern rig if I went new.

I tried HRD5 the lastest version ,It can work with IC-7200 .But there are some computer interference through the USB cable.
I will try to do something to shield the interference.I will twine the cable on magnet!

You can control and Transmitt directly with thestandard USB Cable when using RadioCom 6.
