Do I need additional hardware to work the digital modes?
Last Updated 5 years ago

In some cases Yes!  Modern radio models which connect to the computer via only a USB connection normally have a built-in USB Audio CODEC for the digital modes.  If your radio uses an RS-232 (DB-9) com port connection or an Icom 3.5mm CI-V connection for Rig Control, then chances are you are going to require some additional hardware to connect the audio from the radio to the computer.
