Includes:

  • WCS-7100 Software
  • RT-41 (USB-A to USB mini B) Cable

Requires:

    • Microsoft Windows 8/8.1, 10 (32 or 64 Bit), or Win 11

NOTES:

  • Performance and ease of use guaranteed only with the RT Systems RT-41 cable.
RT Systems WCS-7100 Programming software makes it easy to manage memory channel information and other menu settings of the Icom IC-7100.
 
  • Spreadsheet layout with many point and click options.
  • "Read" the current configuration from the radio for editing or start from scratch in a new file.
  • The programmer has copy and paste of memory channel information between files.
  • Column editing for changing several channels with minimal typing.
  • An easy interface to Internet based data to get repeater information for your location, a travel route, or a vacation spot. Repeater details available for locations in and outside the US. (separate purchase or subscription may be required)
  • Other built-in frequency lists for easy memory channel entries (check File|External data in the programmer before you spend time on internet searches for frequencies. You may find just what you need!)
  • Copy and paste spreadsheet or website data.
  • Much more than just memory channel programming with settings for other radio menu items.
  • RT Systems Programming Software for the
    • Windows version requires Windows 8/8.1 (full version), Windows 10 for 32 and 64 bit platforms or Windows 11.
The IC-7100 can use the USB-RTS01 from RT Systems or the RT-41 (USB-A to USB mini-B) cables for programming and control. This comparison will help you decide between the two cables.

USB-RTS01 The USB-RTS01 cable works through the CI-V port on the back of the radio. CAT commands for radio control and programming commands are passed through this port.

This cable is based on an FTDI chipset and uses the RT Systems USB drivers. It works well with other applications (control, logging, and others that work through the CAT commands). It is a good choice to help avoid a driver conflict with other devices connected to the same computer.

This cable is comparable to the Icom CT-17 cabling with only one connection. Although it carries a 3.5mm stereo plug at the radio end, that plug is wired as mono as needed by the connection of the radio.

RT-41 The RT-41 is a USB-A to USB mini-B cable that connects to the USB connector that is between the External speaker jack and the CI-V remote jack on the back of the radio. Drivers from Silicon Labs associated with the USB electronics built into the radio will be loaded when this cable is used.

Realize that many devices use the Silicon Labs drivers. In the radio world, Kenwood, Icom and Yaesu all use these drivers. This can result in conflicts between devices if you have several things connected to your computer at the same time.

As long as no conflict exists, this cable has the advantage that 1) one like it comes in the box with the radio when the radio is purchased new. 2) On some radios, more advanced commands are handled through the USB port. So you will get more from your radio through this cable connection. 3) This is an older style Android cable. You may have one available if you don't have the one from the original packaging. Cameras and phones used this cable several years ago. If the one you have is wired correctly, it will work. It should be worth the try if the plug fits the radio.
RT Systems programmers work with the radio specified from the manufacturer shown in the description.
 
No implication is made that a programmer is appropriate for a radio with a similar number from a different manufacturer. Actually, purchasing a programmer for a radio from a different manufacturer just because it has a similar number is strongly discouraged.
 
Installed software is NOT returnable, exchangeable or returnable.
