FT-891 drivers?
« on: March 25, 2018, 09:13:41 am »
I am considering selling my IC-706 to get something more compatible with setting up a remotehams station. I looked at the FT-891, but noticed that there isn't a driver for it in the server. Is that planned?

Thanks, Roger. I think the FT891 will be a good replacement for the IC-706. I'm looking into an i5 NUC to put with it, and a LDG tuner. I didn't wanna leave my IC7100 online as I normally use it with the RemoteRig boxes.

There were some fixes to the 891 and there's a new installer at:
