wfview has keystrokes for almost all commonly-accessed controls one would need to have a QSO or browse the bands.
Not only is this convenient for rapidly manipulating the controls, it also may enable blind operators to use modern touch-screen radios if a computer (or even a Pi) is set up to run wfview in full-screen mode on boot.
Don’t forget to check out our supported USB Controllers, which offer even more hands-on controls.
Many users find that a stand-alone numeric keypad provides sufficient controls (frequency, mode, and tuning are available).
For users of the vi editor, we have added HJKL support, with modifiers for J and K being shift and control. H and L follow the selected tuning step.
And for those on the opposite end of the spectrum, we’ve also made sure that wfview works well on touchscreen devices. wfview looks great running full-screen on a 10″ touch screen connected to a Raspberry Pi, for example.
NOTE: Mac users will need to substitute the Command key for the Control key mentioned here.
