The 2013 Ham Radio presentation by Richard VE2DX on rotor automation
ARRL`s Mark Spencer WA8SME was always a great Ham Radio reference for these type of projects.
One of the first try at Ham Radio rotor control protocols Easycomm was originaly a lot more aimed to be a full station control protocol.

The IAB1 and IAB2 are fairly simple boxes using an ohmmeter and proper ICOM documentation of the 8 and 13 pin DIN connectors available on this link;
you can easily do a continuity check from shield of any connector to Ground on the DIN connector, Also from TIP of any cable to the designated DIN pin for this function.
IMPORTANT NOTE: modifying or even opening the DIN plug CAN cause a short that CAN damage your radio, VE2DX Electronic is not responsible for any such damage.
Did you know we ONLY use FTDI USB Chipsets in our ICOM CI-V hub CT-17B product line for your Ham Radio Station, other well-known USB chipsets have been known to be cloned and full of bugs, that is why we ONLY use FTDI chipsets.
Did you know that you should NEVER use stereo cables on a CI-V network? The ICOM CI-V network infrastructure in your Ham Radio station is designed for Mono cables and 1/8 plugs.
Even dought ICOM radios will work with stereo cables (and our CT-17Bs also!) other non-ICOM products may short the signals to grounds causing you communication issues.
VE2DX ELECTRONICS is happy to introduce TrueTTL, this new signal processing approach of ICOM CI-V signals will guarantee that if an OEM CI-V signal is submitted to a VE2DX HUBS or other devices it will be processed to make the resulting ICOM CI-V signal output to an ICOM RADIO or other OEM devices will ALWAYS BE PURE TTL LEVELS. This process also includes RF filtering of all signal I/Os.
This will give users the best CI-V signal performance, signal integrity, maximum link length, prevent RF interference, etc…
VE2DX ELECTRONICS will have multiple new products announcement in 2023.
