  • Mode selector.
  • Receiver bandwidth selector.
  • Antenna and Attenuator selector.
  • AGC control for SSB
  • Squelch and RF-Gain selector.
  • Notch and Beat filter selector.
  • Volume control.
  • 10 memories selector, Read, Write, List, Clear.
  • Extern RX passthrough selector.
  • Digital and analog readout S-Meter.
  • Simple band-scope/spectrum analyzer.
  • Direct jump to frequency harmonics.
  • Transmitter RX/TX control.
  • VOX control.
  • TX Power control 10, 50, 100%.
  • TX Mic-Gain, Processor response, Mic-AGC, others.
  • TX audio Equalizer control.
  • TX bandwidth and shift selector.
  • AM, CW carrier selector, ALC compared.
  • TX Monitor selector.
  • Antenna-Tuner control.
  • RX/TX split frequency support.
  • Sub-tone support for 29 MHz repeaters.
  • Digital recording playback and loop (if DRU-3 option installed).


Frequency control can be done within the app using:
  • 1) Up/down keys of the app GUI (mouse) for the desired frequency segment.
  • 2) Keyboard shortcuts (up/down keys with modifiers)
  • 3) Direct 5 digit frequency entry (using mouse inside App GUI or using keyboard number block).


This is what TS870RC does. Not more and not less.

Since TS870RC has a Power button, maybe you can find usability for IP remote screen sharing.

The Demo version is free, while frequency control, TX control and memory features are blocked.

What you will need is a USB to Serial-Port adaptor. Get more information and hints on my website.
