Manufacturer's Part Number: RC-28
DXE Part Number: ICO-RC-28

UPC: 731797013972
Quantity: Sold individually.
Notes: The RC-28 is a stand-alone plug in control for the IC-7610. For other ICOM radios the RC-28 must be used with the RS-BA1 software. Windows XP requires Service Pack 3 or later.

If you are tired of driving your remotely controlled ICOM rig with a mouse, then these ICOM RC-28 Remote Control USB Encoders are for you! These RC-28 controllers are an optional electronic encoder that functions as a companion to the RS-BA1 IP Remote Control Software. This unit connects to your PC via the included USB cable. Cleverly using the same tuning knob and digital encoder as used on ICOM HF radios, these accessory controls provide a more tactile option to accompany the control software. It really "feels" like you are tuning YOUR RADIO! These electronic controls include a push-to-talk switch and two additional programmable function keys. Program one to activate antenna tuning! The RS-BA1 software requires a free patch to be downloaded in support of this device if yours is earlier than version 1.3.

Don't rely on tuning your remotely-controlled radio with a mouse. Order your ICOM RC-28 Remote Control USB Encoders from DX Engineering and use a better mouse trap!

Great Addition to the Icom IC-7851

DX EngineeringDX Engineering Verified Purchase

ICO-RC-28
The January 2018 V1.20 firmware update for the IC-7851 added the ability to connect the RC-28 rotary encoder directly to the radio and control either the main or sub VFO along with the PTT function when controlling both. The most useful thing for me is the having a tuning knob on the desk top instead of having to turn the sub VFO dial on the front panel; it is much more ergonomic and works great in conjunction with the sub VFO scope display to find the holes in a pileup.

This device does exactly what you'd expect: Extend the primary control of radio frequency to your fingertips. If you are in "search and pounce" mode it sure makes it easy to run the radio with very little effort. It also works with the IP remote control software but I have not tested that yet. It's nice and heavy so won't move around on your desk much. Using it is as easy as plugging it in to the USB port of your radio. Done.
