I would also be interested in an answer on this subject since it appears there is very limited capabilities and added circuits to tap into the ICOM IF section also.
I am not certain if the receive antenna for the SoftRock being so close to the transmit antenna would have a bad affect on the SoftRock receiver but it would be good to understand the risks.

I believe this is in each direction. I have built a softrock txrx ensemble, but I find its 1 watt insufficient to send, but of course its selectivity is phenomenal, and I can run digital modes, etc.

Alternately, I would like to simply use PowerSDR as a DSP on the ICOM's audio output (I don't have access to the IF or I/Q without a mod), and leave out the softrock altogether. Any ideas on how to accomplish either task? Thanks.
