Before you purchase one of my Icom CI-V or Yaesu CAT Ham Radio Interfaces, you are going to need some Amateur Radio software to get the most out of it. This page has links to various sites where you can download free ham radio software or shareware applications. These range from simple rig control right up to full logging software and digimode communications such as PSK31. My interfaces are 100% Compatible with Ham Radio Delux, MixW, TRX-Manager, N1MM, FTBCat and many more that allow you to raise the DTR Signal to provide interface power.

Popular Radio Control Software


Ham Radio Deluxe ($99.95 plus support options)
Ham Radio Deluxe (HRD) is a suite of Windows programs providing CAT control for commonly used transceivers and receivers. HRD also includes mapping and PSK31 software.

MixW (Freeware)
MixW is a multi mode multi functional software for every day logging and Contests. It has many useful features that make your QSO logging process almost a 100% automatic procedure.MixW for digital modes may be used without TNC. The only requirements are a computer running Windows 9x, ME, NT4, 2000, XP or Vista operating system with compatible soundcard and one of the RigExpert USB interfaces.

TRX-Manager (30 day free demo and then $75)
TRX-Manager features a logging module (and all real-time DXCC functions) but its purpose is not to compete with some excellent logging program. It does not attempt either to merely mimic the front panel of your transceiver : a good program must add capabilities to the rig. TRX-Manager uses almost all CAT commands not only to provide remote control, but also to add capabilities such as bands scope, short-wave database, DX Spotting, memory channels management with offset, scanning, CTCSS, mode and filter control or to give you additional real-time features that do not exist on your transceiver. A lot of functions are original

N1MM (Freeware)
The N1MM Logger is a freeware program designed to do contest logging and some general logging. It is not a general logging program with award tracking etc. but is mainly a contest logging program.
