  • Status changed from New to Closed
  • Priority changed from High to Normal
  • Target version changed from 0.5.0 to chirp-daily

The ID-51 and ID-51+ radios are definitely supported (I have the former).
The request for the ID-51+2 duplicates #4545. Please follow and post there. Thanks!

Oh, and if you wish to help develop: check Wiki, "Developers". Thanks!

Some additional feedback:
Some Icom radios are known to deny cooperation with FTDI cables (even genuine ones). Please try a cable with a genuine Prolific chip.
Unfortunately cables with fake "Prolific" chips make the vast majority of cables on the market; genuine Prolific cables are on the more expensive side.
