Goodspeed's Codeplug Tool

Howdy y'all,

This is a CAT and memory programming library for the Kenwood TH-D72, TH-D74 and TH-D710 written in portable Java, with a command-line interface for use on desktop computers.

A matching frontend for Android is available in a separate git repo as CATTool, which calls this library as a dependency.

Dependencies

The jSerialComm library is used to provide a serial port connection for the CLI tool. It is embedded in the repo and statically linked into CodePlugTool.jar.

Code compiles with the latest Java, but Java 8 compatibility is strictly maintained for use in Android. TCP connections are supported, both for hardware network serial port servers and quick and dirty ones built with socat.

Building

Development is performed in Eclipse, but it's easy to build from the command line with Apache Ant.

dell% ant clean jar
Buildfile: build.xml

clean:
   [delete] Deleting directory build

compile:
    [mkdir] Created dir: build/classes
    [unzip] Expanding: lib/jSerialComm-2.6.2.jar into build/classes
    [javac] Compiling 9 source files to build/classes

jar:
      [jar] Building jar: CodePlugTool.jar

BUILD SUCCESSFUL
Total time: 1 second

CLI Usage

The CLI is unstable at this point, but generally you provide a driver (d74) and a port name (ttyACM0) as your parameters, then a verb or to to direct the tool around. Run the tool with no parameters to see a list of available drivers, ports, and verbs.

Usage is presented when run without parameters.

dell% java -jar CodePlugTool.jar 
Usage: 
cpt [driver] [port/file] [verbs]

                991a -- Yaesu FT-991A
        Others
                csv -- Chirp's CSV format.
Ports:
        ttyS0   -- Physical Port S0
        ttyS2   -- Physical Port S2
        ttyS1   -- Physical Port S1
        ttyUSB1 -- USB-to-Serial Port (cp210x)
        ttyUSB0 -- USB-to-Serial Port (cp210x)
Verbs:
        info             -- Prints the radio's info.
        dump             -- Dumps the radio's channels to the console.
        upload foo.csv   -- Uploads a CSV file from CHIRP to the radio.
        download foo.csv -- Downloads a CSV file from the radio.
        raw 'ME 000'   -- Runs a raw command and prints the result.
