RE: Computer control & 38k4 data with ICOM IC-R7000

You may find WispDDE supports your RX in conjunction with Nova.

The CT-16 allows linear transponder passband tracking between two ICOM
radios - one on the uplink and one on the downlink. For the purposes os a
digital transponder, this is not required. You will need a level converter.
ICOM have a CT-17 for this, but you can build one yourself (many examples on
the web, for example http://www.cqham.ru/ci-v_icom.htm).

You need a Symek 10.7MHz IFD between the 10.7MHz IF output and the TNC3.
