as Paul wrote already change the Icom address of one of the IC-706MKIIGs 
and enter the two addresses in the "Radio 1" section of menu "Radio Setup".

You can connect both radios to a single Icom CAT cable  by using an 
Y-adapter on the radio side of the CAT cable. Make sure that the CAT 
cable works on Windows 7 and 8, see the reply of Mike, W4UOO.

When the program starts the radio with the first of the two addresses 
will run as the RX.
In menu "Radio Setup" check the option "Autom. RX/TX Change". The 
program will then automatically change the roles of both radios as RX 
and TX. when you switch between u/v and v/u sats  and you don't need to 
switch the 2m/70cm antennas between the radios.

Leave option "Satellite mode" and all other options in the menu un-checked.

73s, Erich, DK1TB
