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.
  • OSX speech synthesis voice feedback.
  • Simple quick note "logbook" in csv/ssv format.
  • Amateur radio band selector.
  • Frequency control.
  • Mode selector.
  • Receiver bandwidth selector.
  • Antenna and more...

What's New

Version 3.7:
  • VSWR test button added, 2 sec TX auto setup reading SWR value.
  • Analog meter: S-Meter panel now slightly smaller while scale is slightly bigger.
  • RIT offset now showing in main window display.
  • Some minor improvements and fixes.


  • OS X 10.6 or later
  • USB-Serial converter necessary to connect TS-870 to the Mac
