Fully Wireless ICOM IC-705 to Computer Connection for Digital Modes (WSJT-X, JS8Call, WinLink)

Fully Wireless ICOM IC-705 to Computer Connection for Digital Modes (WSJT-X, JS8Call, WinLink)

-The dream of completely wireless connection between radio and computer is a reality with Firmware 1.20 on the ICOM IC-705. I know have a few of my computers setup to connect to my 705 on my home wifi AND in access point mode for fully portable control of the ham radio for running digital modes like JS8Call, WSJT-X and Winlink.
NOTE: There is a firmware version 1.24 out now, the same access point controls works on both 1.20 and 1.24 https://www.icomjapan.com/support/firmware_driver/3256/

CAVEAT: You must use the ICOM RS-BA1 control software for this to work. To date that software package is ~$150.00 https://www.hamradio.com/detail.cfm?pid=H0-016328
