TS870RC is for radio amateurs and ham radio.
I am a fan of the Kenwood TS-870 ham radio transceiver. What I missed was a straight remote control app for OS X, so I started to develope one. Here it is, it covers some main functions:
- Serial data baudrate selectable between 9600 and 57600.
- Power button to switch TS-870 on/off by the software.
- OS X speech synthesis voice feedback.
- Localized UTC clock.
- Simple localized quick note "Logbook" in csv/ssv format.
- Amateur radio band selector.
- Frequency control.
- Mode selector.
- Changed memory management to ARC
- Peak hold meter function switch added
- Now localized date/time format in Mini-Logbook
- Localized UTC clock added to main window
- Shortwave beacon list item added to „Data" menu
- Small code refinements and fixes
- OS X 10.6 or later
- USB-serial converter necessary to connect TS-870 to the Mac
