This version self-identifies as V7000 (apparently a build number) last update 14 Oct 2018.
Easy installation per instructions in RAR archive: extract files into their own directory and run.
I identified my USB serial connection to the transceiver as COM34, which already was set up in dosdevices, and the program communicates successfully with the rig.
Communicates with my IC-718 transceiver, reads and changes bands, transmits data, reports self to pskreporter.info map.
Full functionality of all menu choices that I tried.
Correctly saves configuration settings between sessions.
What does not
INPUT and OUTPUT buttons which under Windows open the sound controls do not function.
The related Pwr slider does not seem to function.
Occasionally at the end of a transmission cycle the receive signal display freezes. This seems to occur when the receive signal level triggers the "PLEASE REDUCE" input level warning emssage.
The SIM-Auto repeat cycle sometimes stalls.
I used PulseAudio Volume Control to accommodate sound adjustments regarding the Input and Output buttons and the Pwr slider.
Selecting Setup --> Audio and Radio Settings and hitting the Initialize button appears to reset the frozen signal display.
Toggling the SIM-Auto button seems to reset the automatic cycle and timer.
What was not tested
Actually receiving a signal is not yet tested, not yet found signal to decode, but indications are that the program is functioning. Tested transmission in SIM31 mode; did not test SIM63 BPSK-31 BPSK-63 modes.
Using VOX so did not test CAT PTT.
My signal has been spotted by another station.
Some documentation is puzzling due to language barrier.
