Hi Jamie,

On a positive note, one of the nice things about the
CI-V interface is that you can share a COM port
so you could put both radios on a laptop that has only
one COM port for field day.

You need a CT-17 interface or equivalent and for two
IC-706's you would need to change the HEX address on
the second one to something other than the factory default.

Best of luck and 73,
Tony AA2TX
