Wfview Icom Interface and ACLog Solution

Do you want to use Wfview and ACLog? I’ve seen Hams who like using ACLog and I believe they would like to integrate Wfview with it. You can have rig control with the warterfall and still use N3FJPs ACLog for a simple logging solution. I have a workaround since ACLog and Wfview are not completely compatible.

Please see my previous post for more screen captures and video.

While in Florida I was using these two programs together along with WSJT-X. (More on WSJT-X later.) They worked beautifully together.

My Wfview and ACLog Solution

I am using VSPE to split the USB COM port (COM5 to COM1) and a CI-V cable is used for ACLog rig control. The USB cable, COM1, is used for Wfview. Wfview needs the USB cable because it has a 115200 baud rate.

Because COM1 is the product of VSPE, I can use it for CW keying in ACLog. If you don’t need CW transmit in ACLog you don’t need to add VSPE into the mix. 

So COM1 is used for Wfview and CW keying in ACLog. The CI-V cable is used soley for ACLog rig control. See screen captures below.

This is a neat little portable CW paddle.

WSJT-X, Wfview and ACLog

I have WSJT-X using Rigctld which is activated in Wfview. So if you want to get ahead, try this setting below for WSJT-X.

Thank you

If you have any questions about Wfview, please ask them here. I prefer the comment section here or in YouTube over e-mail because your comments and questions will help others as well.

I'm an Amateur Radio enthusiast. I love the hobby and experimenting with radios, antennas and software. On my YouTube channel I upload videos on the Icom 7300 and Icom 7610 along with Ham radio software programs. I hope to inspire people to try new things in Amateur Radio.
