I'm considering the purchase of and IC-7000 as my base rig. I've been using older rigs since I became a ham 6 years ago, and my exposure to the digital modes(besides CW) has been limited to field day. Someday I would like to get into RTTY and PSK31. My question is...How hard is it to set up the 7000 to run with MacLoggerDX? I'm not going for PTT and RTTY right now, just what's needed for Rig control so that I won't have to type in the frequency. Anybody have an opinion on RigBlaster? How hard is it to make the connections between the Rig, the box, and the CPU?

The current driver list includes the IC-7000, so it should be no different than any other rig.

Excellent choice of software, BTW (and computer!!!)

A smoking section in a restaurant makes as much sense as a peeing section in a swimming pool.

RigBlaster (and it's software) is NOT Mac friendly. The Signalink from Tigertronics or an interface from Donner is much better, as is the self contained USB/Soundcard package from MicroHAM.
