[SD-User] IC7200

OK Finally woke up and figured out how to edit the ICOM rig control file.

I opened the IC7700 file and changed the rig address to 118 to match the IC7200.
Saved the file as IC7200.SD.

I now have freq readout using SDI  but no CW keying using the internal SDI keyer.

I am sharing PORT COM 3  for rig control and CW .  The IC7200 has a single USB cable to the PC.

As an aside I used the IC7200 last night with DM780+HRD to work some PSK31.  The audio to from the rig and PC runs over the single USB cable as well...no need for another interface.

Now back to trying to figure out how to make the CW keying work with SDI.

When I run through the PORTS process I get confirmation that port sharing is 
working for COM 3.

However - I see no freq display nor do I have CW keying.  There is no error 

Have tried SD ICOM files for IC718  IC7700  IC7800.

Tried to open IC7700 SD control file but don't know how to do it in order to 
change the control address.
How do I edit the IC7700 (or any ICOM ) cointrol file?

That's a good question, sorry I don't know the answer.

Is anyone already using rig control with the IC7600?

What error message did SDI display?  I presume you're
using another of SD's Icom control files with the
control address on Line 2 changed to 118 (76 Hex)?
