TS870RCOverview

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 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.
  • Separate frequency panel for transverter usage
  • RIT +-RX offset RX in 10 Hz steps.
  • Integrated amateur-prefixes and broadcast-lists via menu item.
  • Transmitter RX/TX control.
  • VOX control.
  • TX Power control 10, 50, 100%.
  • TX Power-Amplifier control.
  • TX Mic-Gain, Processor response, Mic-AGC, others.
  • TX audio Equalizer control.
  • TX bandwidth and shift selector.
  • Save and load TX audio parameters as "local/dx" presets.
  • AM, CW carrier selector, ALC compared.
  • TX Monitor selector.
  • Antenna-Tuner control.
  • VSWR test button.
  • RX/TX split frequency support.
  • Sub-tone support for 29 MHz repeaters.
  • Digital recording playback and loop (if DRU-3 option installed).

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.
