# [Trlog] CI-V address for 756PROII

```Hi All:

Only one post, I promise!  But, I can't resist.

To convert an ICOM address from "hex" to decimal:

first digit X 16 + second digit

For example, "56h" yields 5 x 16 + 6 = 80 + 6 = 86.

For example, "66h" yields 6 x 16 + 6 = 96 + 6 = 102.

Using a Windows calculator seems like overkill... :-)

We use the decimal system so much we "forget" that 102
is 1 x 10 x 10 + 0 x 10 + 2.  Hex works the same way,
except each position is times 16 instead of 10.

The "digits" 10-15 are represented by A, B, C, D, E,
and F, in case you see a "number" like CF.

For example, "CFh" yields 12 x 16 + 15 = 207.

73,

Mark
