Stephen,

I gave up on using remote base. I am currently using hamlib to control my
Icom IC-7000 and it works great!

Here is a link. http://sourceforge.net/p/hamlib/wiki/Hamlib/

Here is a snippet from David KB4FXC that helped me set it up. Thanks again
David!

* The most simplistic way to utilize hamlib is via simple shell-script calls
*>* from AllStar.  Here is a super simple -working- sample that demonstrates
*>* changing to channels 1, 2 and 3 on a 706mk2g.
*>>* ....Add this to rpt.conf in the desired functions stanza:
*>>>* [functions]
*>* 921=cmd,/usr/local/bin/rigctl -r /dev/ttyUSB0 -m 311 -s 9600 -c0x58 h 1
*>* 922=cmd,/usr/local/bin/rigctl -r /dev/ttyUSB0 -m 311 -s 9600 -c0x58 h 2
*>* 923=cmd,/usr/local/bin/rigctl -r /dev/ttyUSB0 -m 311 -s 9600 -c0x58 h 3
*>>>>>* So, DTMF commands *921, *922, *923 change to channels 1, 2 or 3.  Note
*>* that the path to rigctl and path for the serial device must be correct.
*>>* I use much more sophisticated scripting, including a sqlite3 database,
*>* etc....The sky is the limit!  And, this is all really quite easy to do,
*>* supporting a multitude of different radios.*

>>* 73, David KB4FXC*
