Macintosh Amateur Radio Software - June 1994
Version 1.0.7

Please feel free to distribute this list as widely as possible. Many of you have asked if it is OK to cross-post this list? I don't mind, but I would like to know where it is going. If you think it should be cross-posted to other USENET groups, please let me know so I can try and manage these. We don't want to have any duplication or our welcome will be wore out!

Those of you that can tell me about ANY of these programs compatibility with System 7 would be appreciated! I am going to be adding a System 7 compatability section to EACH description in future releases. If the application is KNOWN to execute properly under System 7, the System 7 anotation will be placed as the last line of the product description. More clarification on levels of System 7 compatibility in the future editions... but this is a start!

Some of the information in this list was gleaned from flyers supplied by the software vendors, or in some cases from reviews in amateur radio publications or the README files included with the archive. Some of the information has not been verified for a long time; please check with the vendors/authors for the latest product specs, pricing, etc.

NEW/CHANGES: I am continuing to add more version numbers so that our
users will know if they have the most current release. Thanks to
those that have already sent them in... I'll accept all corrections!

The newest e-mail I have received indicates a new product soon to be released for the Mac which has been in the DOS world for awhile... the Automatic Position Reporting System (APRS) is currently being beta'd. It is expected to be released soon.

The ftp site at The World is no longer. It has been moved to
oak.oakland.edu.  Scott-WY1Z is maintaining these file as the
Librarian of the Boston Amateur Radio Club. Look in the following
path:  /pub/hamradio/mac. If you'd like to archive your
software.files here, please contact Scott at [email protected]

Finally we are starting to see soem advances in Callbook data for the Mac. Mark Sproul, author of Packet Tracker, has completely revised the HAMCALL application that first appeared in the Oct 92 issue of the Buckmaster HamCall CD-ROM. This one is very nice. Well done Mark! RT Systems in Huntsville, AL has included a Mac interface for their SAM database. No information on this one just yet... but some Mac users will be getting information to me soon.

Check at the bottom of this list for more information on ftp'able
sites carrying Amateur Radio software. The ARRL ListServer is also
carrying the latest version of this list... in case you loose this
one!

you should believe the slidebutton's value. If you repeat many
times, the average speed should be 5WPM (if not... anyway, believe
the slidebutton's value).  Archive is available mac.archive.umich.edu,

and implemented since last version include: after three incorrect
responses the program shows the correct character; the list of
characters at the end which will show those you know and those
you need more practice on; the frequency of the tone has been
changed; volume of the tone has been reduced; the character " - "

<Savant 1.0.2>
 A new packet terminal front-end by the author of Virtuoso. Savant has a split window interface, but it's also a multi-window, multi-connection interface and will work with almost any TNC,
unlike MacRatt or HostMaster.
 A demo version of the product is available at cpre1.ee.iastate.edu
(pub/ke0ph) or via US Mail, send a SAS disk mailer and disk to CM
Technologies, Inc., RR#1, Box 83A, Kelley, IA 50134 (515) 597-2051.

 98036.

<Host Master 1.2>
 The Kantronics Host Master software provides an easy to use, multifunctional terminal program for the TNC. Host Master Mac is a simultaneous multi-mode terminal program for the Mac written by Kevin Krueger, N0IOS and marketed by Kantronics. It is a commercial product available from most of the ham radio stores and supports single and multiple packet connects, packet monitoring, and HF operation (with KAM) each on a separate window, all at the same time. This package retails for $69.95 in the US and is intuitive, friendly, and well supported by Kantronics. Current version as of 10/20/93 is 1.2. It is hoped that a future version will support FAX but currently Hostmaster supports PACKET, AMTOR, RTTY, PACTOR (KAM ver. 6.0), CW, and NAVTEX.  Features: text and binary file transfer; packet conferencing; color or B&W windows; cut, copy, paste between windows; call exchange and data/time stamp; auto startup/shutdown commands; transmit buffers for each mode; simultaneous dual port, !
multiple connects; supports KPC-2,
 KPC-2400, KPC-4, KAM and Data Engine. Requires: Macintosh Plus w/ System 6.05 or better. Current Kantronics firmware.  
 System 7 compatible, with baloon help

<PacketTracker 1.07>
 PacketTracker ver 1.07 is a SHAREWARE program that monitors packet activity and keeps track of what is going on. It draws a graphical map showing who is talking to who and displays statistics of all current stations and keeps a running tally of activity.  PacketTracker was written for both the casual packet user and the network manager or BBS operator. The casual packet user will be able to learn a great deal about what is happening in packet around him; which stations are generating the most data and what some of them are. he will be able to see graphically what stations he can hitdirectly and which ones he cannot.  For the network manager and BBS operator, PacketTracker provides extensive insight to the operation of the local network and problems such as excessive retries on a path. It also allows for extensive logging of channel utilization and other pertinate information.
 NOTE: This application requires the Apple's Serial Tool from the Communications Toolbox which is NOW included in the archive.
 System 7

<APRS>
 There will soon be a Mac version of the APRS (Automatic Position 
Reporting System) software.  Folks use this to collect packet beacons,  plot channel activity, track chase vehicles for marathons, etc. When it's out, I'll let you know.

<DSK_Loader 1.0>
 DSK_Loader is the Macintosh equivalent of the DOS program DSKL. With this program you can communicate with the DSK (DSP Starter Kit) from Texas Instruments. This program bootloads a simple communications kernel and then loads other software using this kernel. Other options are: Fill DSK memory with a certain value; Dump DSK memory into a textwindow, for further processing; Execute programs on the DSK; Graph output from the DSK; Act as a dumb terminal to the DSK.
 The DSK and thus DSK_Loader is most interesting for people who want to experiment with Digital Signal Processing at low costs.
For HAM-Radio operators it is a very interesting piece of equipment, Some applications, like the KC7WW port of the W9GR filters are included.
 This program is public domain so you can distribute it to others, put it on BBS's, FTP sides, etc. If you encounter some problem    s, bugs, find language mistakes in the help-information (english is not my native tongue), or just want to know me that you use this program, feel free to write to the address below, by email, or just postal mail. Please add information about the system you use, and the application you use the DSK for. I also like to hear your wishes for future versions.
