Guide to the Wfview Icom Interface
Wfview can be helpful if you use ACLog, Log4OM, MacLoggerDX and other logging programs that don’t come with a rig control interface with the waterfall. So it can be used with a lot of different software.
Introduction: What is the Wfview Icom Interface?
It is software that connects to the Icom transceivers and controls the rig via your USB cable and it will do it over the Internet, but that’s another topic for another day.. This neat application has a spectrum scope and waterfall when used with the IC-7300. You’ll be able to control the frequency, band edges, filters, audio, rf gain, PBT and more.
How to Install
To install, follow these steps for Windows:
1) Download the Windows release from here. The current version is v1.5
2) Right-click, choose extract all, the file and extract it
3) Double-click the file to start the installation process. Follow the prompts to install. I always install to the default location. (See video for how it’s done.)
How to Configure for the IC-7300
In this section I’ll be using my Icom 7300 (IC-7300) and if you have another compatible transceiver you’ll just need the CI-V address it uses.
To start check you’re radios internal settings. My Icom 7300 Screen Captures for your reference. Then use the setting below for the Icom 7300.

Stay in touch, stay safe and best 73,
Wfview can also be connected via your network (for network capable radios such as the 7610 or 8600).
Good to hear from you Brad and thanks. I want to try it with my 7610 because I use Icom RS-BA1 right now.
Thanks for commenting and I’ll dive into this and lots more with the videos.
Best 73 and good DX!
I use N3fjp’s logging software. can u\you use both at the same time?
Yes, I am using VSPE and splitting the COM port. So, ACLog and Wfview can control the radio at the same time. There may be other ways, but it works for me and I can use WSJT-X too. More on that coming up.
Have a look at the video here.
