Future plans & features

Hello! I’m very excited to see where this project goes since it is open source and cross platform!

Curious if there are any plans to add support for virtual serial ports so that I can connect multiple programs (i.e. logging program, WSJTX, fldigi, etc) simultaneously?

Very best,
Brian WB8AM

Hi Brian.

Yes we have a number of plans in this area, firstly we plan to add the capability for multiple virtual serial ports but we are also working on emulating the Hamlib rigctld which will then allow any software that uses Hamlib to connect.

In addition we will likely add a “raw” TCP port that can be used to send/receive CI-V commands as this is also becoming an option in certain software.

Hi Van,

It might. Many commands are shared over the arc of Icom CI-V bus radios. If you try it, please let us know.

PS: We are adding one feature to the code to slow down the communication for older rigs. Once this is in, it’ll have a fighting chance.

I am not a coder but I have a IC-718 and I am a willing test subject…
