Thank you very much SWLing Post contributor, Markku Koskinen, who notes the following new and updated programs for the Icom IC-705 general coverage transceiver:

First, Icom published firmware version 1.20 which includes a number of new features. We will post the full announcement below. Click here to view the release notes and download.

Second, Icom has published a new version (1.10) of its IC-705 programming software. The new version also includes a number of additions. Click here to view the release notes and download.

Finally, Markku notes that there is now a Remote IC-705 subscription in the Google Play app store.

The application seems to control basic functionality, such as tuning, bandwidth, mode, filter and CI-V address change. The app is free and should work on most Android devices.

Thanks for the tips, Markku!
