Ham Radio Deluxe

This product was developed by Simon Brown (HB9DRV), http://www.ham-radio.ch/ and is no longer supported by him. Simon is now IW5EDI, http://www.iw5edi.com/.

In 2012 the product was sold with all rights to HRD Software, LLC from Prosper, Texas, USA. Their fancy web site is: https://www.hamradiodeluxe.com/. So, Ham Radio Deluxe is now a fully commercialised product sold under licenced by HRD Software, LLC from Prosper, Texas, USA. The current version from HRD Software, as at February 2019, is v6.5.0.183

See this article for further details on the "free" version:
https://www.egr.msu.edu/msuarc/software/ham-radio-deluxe/

The last "free" version of HRD was Ham Radio Delux V.5.24.38 cicra 2012. To obtian the "free" version, search the internet for "ham-radio-deluxe-5-24-38.exe" It is getting harder to find but is still around.

Remote Audio

remoteAudio is a cross plattform audio streaming application, built for Amateur Radio purposes. The most typical use case for this software is the remote operation of an amateur radio station. remoteAudio is written in Go.

remoteAudio supports multiple users and multiple audio sources (e.g. radios). This means that with a single click a user can switch between audio sources. At any time multiple clients can listen simultaneously on the same radio, although remoteAudio only allows one user to transmit.
