Description

Any plans to issue support tp allow programming of an Icom IC-9100?

It appears the RT Systems software is full of bugs and causes scanning on rig due to software problems. RT Systems ignores repeated requests to even admit problems with their software and has had months to sort it out. They continue to deny any reports out of a now growing number of complaints at least 30 users I know of personally.

The only other software useable is the cloning Software from Icom and it works although to a more limited degree than the RT offering.

I used Chirp to program several HTs and it works without a hitch.

I don't know what the testing entails but I would be willing to try out software here if it were available.

Thanks for considering it.

I just got a 9100 and would love to have chirp work for it too. I would be willing to beta test it as well since I use it for all my other rigs it would make life easier.

I purchased an IC-9100 at the end of the year, and I can loan it or work with images like you're doing with the Alinco DJ-G7 as this radio is 38 lbs inside its two (one inside another) shipping boxes and 26-28 lbs "naked" (including UX-9100 23cm module).
