- Here is a link to the item I purchased on Ebay. I see the price and the shipping charge has gone up a bit. That's not very nice!
Searching Ebay for the key words "icom ct-17" brings up a lot of good products. Check it out.
Also, be warned that I have no idea how to use the USB interface on the IRP nodes so I won't be of any help if you purchase a USB to Icom cable.
My friends tell me that the USB cable works great for controlling your icom radios from a windows XP laptop running the free "ham radio deluxe" software.

for general use. I was forgetting that this was on the E-IRLP list and
your intended use was for an embedded node! A serial version is also
available. It would certainly be easier.
PS - congrats on a super idea to make a node frequency agile!
