Hi all,


I'm considering buying the IC-7300.
However, firstly I'd like to know what's the minimum cost needed to do such a job. As far as I read, I must purchase the ICOM software RS-BA1. Then connecting the IC-7300 to a Raspberry I can listen to it remotely with no fuss? What are the options?
I want to listen to it in Windows OS outside the network in which IC-7300 will be connected.


Thank you

You can operate it totally for free with remote hams software.  You will need a PC for it to run on.

https://www.remotehams.com/

Load the server software on your PC at the site of the 7300,  You can load client software on your remote PC or if you want to buy the android phone software to control, it is $10 from the app store.

it took me about an hour to get it all up and running. It will also control rotors, amplifiers and remote switches of all kinds. like antenna switches or other things. Full audio transmit and receive. Graphical interface of the transciever.  NO waterfall though. Just an S/PO meter .  Full feature operation.

Hi K0UA,

Many thanks for your quick and detailed reply.
That is good to know, for sure I'll get the app for $10... Despite the software limitations you mentioned it's seems to be still a great way to get it running...
Btw, is there any additional hardware I need to buy, like a special cable?

Only a simple USB A to USB B cable.  Which you may already have laying around the house from an old printer install.  Or even if you do have to buy one. You can get them nearly anywhere for $5.  Wal Mart Amazon, Best buy etc. Both the control and audio signals pass thru this same cable. You will need to download the drivers for the Icom USB audio Codec from Icom Japan website.  These drivers are installed on your pc of course. These drivers will also set up your pc for any digital work you might like to do with your Icom 7300. The audio soundcard is built into the 7300, and this just looks like an external soundcard to your PC.

Thanks again for the support.
I already have some of these cables from old printers. Also some of them from the Arduino programming as well.

Oh, I forgot to tell you the interface looks like a K3.  Oh well.  it is still full featured and has the Icom (or any rig it is set to) feature set.  But it looks like a K3. Of course looks entirely different on the phone client app. But you get used to it pretty quick.

Nice to know. Really looking forward to get my IC-7300. Sold my second-hand TS-480SAT and now wanting a brand new full-featured radio.
I'm currently looking into the best prices here in Europe... I find that the prices varies a lot through Europe.

Why not consider something like Kiwisdr that is widely  supported by a community of enthusiasts and its  remote capabilities are superb.
