Hi Jamie,

In the interest of full disclosure, I should point out
that software control to use a single "half-duplex"
(i.e. non-satellite) radio only works with Kenwood and
Yaesu radios.

The ICOM CI-V computer interface doesn't have any commands
to control or operate in split mode. You can use an IC-706
under software control for EITHER receiving or transmitting
but you will also need another radio (which could be another
IC-706) for the other half of the link.
