Software Resources

Welcome to the Software Resource Page at the NW7US Command Center.

Palm Pilot Software - First, My Choice:
  • HF Radio Logger (V0.1.3) by Tomas Hood (NW7US)
    NOTE: THIS SOFTWARE IS OUT-OF-DATE. Do not download it. I am working on a very new version, which will be out at least by Christmas, 2003. There is a current beta team testing and working with me on development. Check back for updates! The program is now called, "rLog" - and the main page is at http://hfradio.org/rlog/.

  • PocketBeacon
    Excellent - Track beacons in the NCDXF/IARU International Beacon Network. (See the NCDXF site.)

  • Earth and Sun version 1.2 for Palm Pilot
    From David W. Bray, who has other great programs, this is one of my favorite "grey-line" applications for the Palm. Earth&Sun is a program for the PalmPilot to show the Sun Illuminated area of the Earth. It will also display:

    - The latitude and longitude of an Earth location.

    - The time zone at that location, based on only longitude not civil boundaries.

    - The current time at that location based on the above time zone.

    - The sunrise, sunset times, and day length at that location.

    - The great circle distance between to locations on the earth.

    Earth&Sun can be used as a realtime clock if you have a Palm V or use a PalmPilot simulator on your computer.

    Because of time zone irregularities some will consider Earth&Sun to fall into the category of "fun and games". We hope you find Earth&Sun useful and enjoy it.

  • DotDash v1.0 for Palm Pilot
    DotDash is a morsetrainer for the Palm Pilot with features such as "Train Random Words&, "Learn Alphabet", "Recognize Random Abbreviations", has different speed settings, does morse text as you write, etc. DotDash is $10 shareware. You must pay if you like it and use it. Requires Palm OS 2.0

  • PalmPilot Morse Code:
  • Morse Pilot 3.0
    Morse Pilot is a popular and very comprehensive freeware Morse code tutor / trainer with decoder and encoder functions. Morse Pilot is intended for personal training (for example for radio ham or aviation examinations). Of course it is not a substitute for proper training or a real morse key... For more information see the README file included in the distribution.

    A program to learn the morse code. You can practice with groups of 5, q-groups, common abbreviations or get text from memopad, clipboard or lessons. $20.00

  • PalmPilotSatellite:
  • pSatellite
    pSatellite (pS) is a satellite tracking application for the Palm OS® environment. It provides visualization of satellite orbit position on a world map (Mercator projection) from any ground location you enter within pS. The core vector propagator within pS uses standard Two Line Elements (TLE's) available on the Internet and works for both low earth orbiting (LEO's)and geo- synchronous (GEO's)satellites. $15.00

  • PalmPilot Packet:
  • PocketAPRS
    pocketAPRS captures the major APRS system functions in a package which comfortably fits in a shirt pocket. Supposedly runs only on PalmOS 3.0 and higher.

  • Pilot VT100
    Pilot VT100 is a simple terminal emulator. It uses a very small fixed-sized font (3x5 character cells) and provides a 40x24 character screen. There are also buttons for escape (ESC) and control (CTL).

  • ptelnet 0.6
    ptelnet is a powerful communication software for the Palm Computing platform. By using the built-in TCP/IP stack (telnet mode), it acts as a Telnet Client. By accessing the serial (RS232 or IR) port directly (serial mode), it acts as a standard Terminal Emulator. And best of all, ptelnet is FREE! By Marcio Migueletto de Andrade.

    PropView uses the IonCAP propagation prediction engine to forecast the minimum and maximum useable frequencies between two locations over a specified 24 hour period. Results are rendered in an easy-to-understand color-graphic display. Locations can be specified via direct latitude/longitude entry. Alternatively, PropView interoperates with DXView to allow location selection by entering a DXCC prefix, or by selecting locations on a world map; this interoperation requires DXView version 1.2.7. PropView requires a PC running Windows 9X, 2000, NT, or XP with an SVGA or better display. This application is free, and contains no advertising. Commercial use is expressly forbidden.
