I have been working down this road as well and tried many methods. You
can't use CI-V unless you have the UX-14 installed. I didn't ever add that
to mine and you can't find it hardly ever anymore. So I found this
from Piexx. I contacted Chris at Piexx and he said the board has not been
used in a 1271, but would work. He would need a 1271a shipped to him as he
doesn't have one and needs to read and set some settings in the firmware to
understand the freq's of the 1271a. I said that would be fine, but then
found out it sounds like the 1271 is not controllable with HRD (Ham Radio
Deluxe) even though the IC-751a appears to be and Piexx's board works with
So while I want to send it to Piexx and get the board installed I wanted to
find software that would work with Chris' board and have not yet found that.
I haven't given up, but took a break as some new D-star toys came Friday and
that is a little higher on the list right now to me. Please let me know
what you find and I'll keep you up to date if I get it sent to Piexx.

I'm having a snow day! One of the joys of life in South Dakota! Don't
worry it costs me a day of vacation time. I knocked the dust off my ic-1271
and worked myself on AO-51 as she went by. Has anyone played with computer
controlling and IC-1271? My radio does not have the IC-EX309 interface
unit. I believe that means it will not even accept (CI-V) /TTL level
commands in its current state as there is no connection for them. Has
anyone gone down this road, and solved computer control of an IC-1271?
Thanks and 73,
