If you use the digital modes you have the need to determine what port Windows has put your radio on.
That means opening the control panel and navigating around,
Whatcom finds the com ports on your pc with just 1 click. You can run it to see what are installed, plug in your cable then click refresh to see what port got added.
2017-11-19 This newer version also shows the audio ports that it finds.
Download the file, unzip it to your folder of choice and run WhatCom.ext
This version fixes a bug that Rich W4RQ found where some bearings were wrong.
Well, I hope it fixes the problrm ... Download the .zip file, expand to your folder of choice, run LocFi.exe, enter your QRZ credentials and give it a try..
