    Icom: RaspberryPi-based Portable IF-Recorder

    Hi all, I did this stuff for my Icom-705, when I've found that the internal recorder can make only 8000 kHz sample rate WAV files, that is absolutely not enough for many digital signals, and even for AM-stations.

    Icom F1721 doesn't scan

    Hello, I recently got IC-1721 off of ebay for ham use (analog), Rx/Tx very well but does not scan, given that I have properly programmed scan lists into the radio. I just upgraded to the latest firmware 3.1 and that did not fix the problem. Any idea why? I'd appreciate your feedback.
