I recently installed Wfview v1.5 on a Win 10 laptop connecting to a R8600 using an ethernet-to-wifi adapter. Took this approach since I didn’t want to use an ethernet cable - just a bit too cumbersome… Results overall are excellent and this is exactly the setup needed to control the receiver from the laptop. The critical R8600 controls are supported in version 1.5.
Have been decoding FT8 this morning with WSJT-X using the signal from Wfview and comparing with another instance of WSJT-X routing the signal directly from the R8600. Comparing results shows number of spots are almost identical. Impressive since the the wifi signal in the radio shack is not the strongest.
Also have decoded other digital signals via Wfview with similarly excellent results, e.g. HFDL (using PCHFDL) and GMDSS (using Multipsk).
Very pleased to have this software available for the R8600. Thanks!
