tk10 is open source software designed for the ICOM IC-R10 receiver. Though tk10 is intended chiefly for Linux, MacOS X, and BSD users, it is designed to work on Microsoft Windows (95 and later), too.
The current, experimental version of tk10 can:
I implemented tk10 in the Tcl/Tk scripting language which enables it to run on a variety of operating systems, including Linux, MacOS X, BSD, Microsoft Windows (95 and later), etc. The free Tcl/Tk interpreter software must be installed on your computer prior to using tk10.
