Doing CW on the road

Because no additional Soft- or Hardware is needed, you can quickly connect to your Icom Transceiver from wherever you are – and quickly do a CW-QSO … or FT8 … or SSB


SDR Control for Icom can be used for the following Icom Transceivers:

  • IC-705 (via WiFi)
  • IC-9700 (via LAN cable)
  • IC-7610 (via LAN cable)

USB Connections or other Transceivers are not supported. This may follow in later versions depending on demand.

The App runs on any Mac that supports at least macOS 10.15 (Catalina). There is no relevant RAM or Hard-drive space requirement but a fast CPU would be an advantage. The App runs natively on both Intel and M1 Macs. Even though the App runs on Catalina, Big Sur (macOS 11) or Monterey (macOS 12) is recommended as the App will take advantage of some features only available in these newer macOS versions.

In order to access your Radio from the Internet from a remote location, certain settings in your Router (explained in the Manual) are necessary for Data passing to and from the Transceiver.

If you have purchased the App once from the AppStore (thank you!) you can run it on several additional Mac’s with any number of Icom Transceivers you own. No additional purchase is necessary. You only have to use one and the same Apple ID on all your Macs.
