Officiële Release WFView

Hi Friends, 

It is my pleasure to announce that the wfview team has completed our first official release of wfview. 

wfview is software for controlling modern Icom receivers and transceivers, using either USB or network for the audio and control. This release of wfview is designed to support the following radios:


IC-R8600 (preliminary) 





wfview provides the user with data from the radio’s spectrum display. The main tab contains all the basic features most users will need for a QSO or casual listening. Other tabs contain convenient buttons for jumping to various bands or adjusting more detailed parameters of the radio, including the calibration control adjustment on the IC-9700, which can be used in tandem with the waterfall display. 

wfview goes beyond simply allowing the user to adjust the radio. wfview enhances the user’s experience, with easy-to-use keystrokes for most tasks and accessibility labels for screen readers. The software even includes a built-in rig server, primarily designed for the IC-7300, which allows other instances of wfview on remote computers to connect in and enjoy fast real-time control and low-latency audio. 

wfview supports Linux, Windows, and macOS, and is fully open-source.
