  Screenshot of Bandspread window @ 5 kHz: 160m DX

Displays frequency-dependent control settings for devices like tuners and amplifiers, and drives a parallel port or microHAM, and OTRSP-compliant SO2R switching devices

Supports satellite QSOs by Interoperating with SATPC32 and the Self-contained Antenna Tracker (S.A.T.)

Provides 10 banks of 10 memories, each specifying frequency, mode, and filter

Displays active DX stations from SpotCollector in a zoom-able bandspread 

Switches between four transceivers with a mouse click, or automatically based on frequency

Supports simultaneous frequency and mode tracking by an independent transceiver, receiver, or panadaptor

Supports additive and subtractive transverters for the 6m, 4m, 2m, and 70cm bands

Permits definition of up two 2 sub-bands per band, and highlights out-of-segment operation

Interoperates with SDR-based panadaptors and skimmers

when controlling an Icom IC-705, IC-7300, IC-7610, IC-7850, IC-7851, or IC-9700, provides a Spectrum-Waterfall window that displays spectrum data, active DX stations, and a waterfall display

Supports User-defined Command Sequences

Monitors messages between your PC and transceiver
