Please take a look at a really cool piece of software: wfview! If you have a ICOM radio, now there is an alternative to the ICOM RS-BA1 remote controlling software. The cool thing about wfview is you can run it on almost every platform (Linux, MacOS, Windows etc) since it is open source and you can compile the source yourself.
