tk7 is open source software designed for the ICOM IC-Q7 walkie-talkie. Though tk7 is intended chiefly for Linux, MacOS X, and BSD users, it will work on Microsoft Windows (95 and later), too.
The current, experimental version of tk7 works with both the IC-Q7A and IC-Q7E models and can:
I implemented tk7 in the Tcl/Tk scripting language which enables it to run on a variety of operating systems, including Linux, MacOS X, Microsoft Windows (95 and later). I have not tested it on other platforms, but it will probably work on them after little or no modification. The free Tcl/Tk interpreter software must be installed on your computer prior to using tk7.
