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 3.6:
  • 10k frequency up/down keys: Step spacing 3 kHz added.
  • RIT added to transverter panel and Radio-menu, RX +- offset in 10 Hz steps.
  • New shortkey for RIT = „R", RF Gain shortkey changed to „G".
  • Some minor improvements and fixes.


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