tk75 is a multiplatform control and cloning program for the ICOM IC-R75 shortwave receiver. It lets you control the IC-R75 from a computer and download/upload the radio's memory channels from/to a csv (comma-separated values) file using a graphical user interface. A logging facility records active frequencies, intercept time, and relative signal strength automatically while scanning. A session history window lets you return to a frequency you've monitored using a single mouse click. tk75 affords easy access to radio controls which are buried within the radio's menus (e.g., DSP Noise Reduction level).
