Projects / tk2


tk2 is a configuration tool for the ICOM IC-R2 portable radio receiver. It lets you read a memory image from the radio, manipulate the settings using a graphical user interface, and save the result to a file or back to the radio. Memory channel information can be imported from CSV file or ICF files downloaded from the Percon Web database, and exported to CSV files.
