Here you will find a a collection of amateur radio programs for the Macintosh. The Mac is a greatplatform for ham radio software. The following programs will help you get the most fromthe hobby.

All of these programs are distributed as shareware, which means that you can download them for free, and try themout. Once you decide that you like the program and will continue to use it, then you simply have to register it, and pay a very small fee. Registering your software shows your support forquality Macintosh ham radio software, and will help to ensure that more amateur radio software for the Macis written.

Want to decode CW / RTTY / SSTV / FAX / ACARS / PSK31 / SITOR / FEC / Hell and more ham radio modes?Want to transmit them from your Mac as well? Well then, MultiMode is the program you've been looking for!With MultiMode, you don't need any extra hardware, modems, or level shifters, as with pcsoftware. Just plug your radio's speaker or line level audio output into your Mac's microphonejack, and you can start decoding! Want to transmit? Run a cable from your Mac's speaker jack toyour rig's microphone jack, and you're ready to go on the air. Amateur radio digital modes havenever been easier.

How popular is MultiMode? Well, there have been literally hundreds of requests for a Windowsversion, since there is nothing like this for the PC. But MultiMode is available only for the Mac!

Often, you'd like to be able to record from your radio, unattended. If so, Audiocorder is the program for you. You just connect a cable from your radio's speaker jack to your Mac'smicrophone jack. You then set a minimum volume level, and audiocorder will automaticallyrecord any audio above that volume to a sound file! You can also set a variable delay, so thatpauses or low volume periods don't stop the recording, much like the delay feature on your scanner.Each recording can be stored in it's own file, or they can all be stored in one file.

Audiocorder is perfect for unattended recording from your ham rig or scanner. It can also be used to recordfrom other sound sources, or from your Mac's microphone. Some have used it to record animal soundsin nature.

DX Toolbox Toolbox searches the web for you, gathering information on solar and geomagnetic conditions that affect ham radio propagation.

A grayline map of the world is also available. Propagation between locations within the grayline region of the world is often greatly enhanced. DX Toolbox's grayline map makes it easy for you to determine where those locations are.

You can have the location of the currently transmitting NCDXF/IARU beacon displayed on the map as well. You can also plot the great circle (shortest) path between your location and another station, compute distance, as well as the beam heading.

MUF (Maximum Usable Frequency) and LUF (Lowest Usable Frequency) can also be estimated between two points on the Earth.

Twenty text reports of propagation conditions and forecasts are also available.

Morse Mania
If you're trying to learn morse code, possibly to pass your FCC amateur exam, then Morse Mania is what you need. Morse Mania helps youlearn the code with several modules. First, it teches you the sound of each character. Next,you practice recognizing each character. Then it can send blocks of characters for practicesessions. Finally, Morse Mania can play morse code from any text file, so you can easilysimulate real off-the-air QSOs, or even FCC exam tapes!

You can select the speed of transmission, and which characters you want to practice.

Elmer you're studying to take the amateur / ham radio written exam, then this program is for you! This program contains the full pool of questions for each of the five exams, and createssample tests that will vary each time you take them. After completing the test, made up exactly asthe real exam will be, Elmer will grade your exam and tell you how well you did, as well as indicating which questions you answered incorrectly. Practice with this, and you will surely pass your exam!

RF Toolbox next time you start an antenna project, you'll want to run RF Toolbox first. Thispackage helps you design several types of antennas, such as Dipoles, Fat Dipoles, Yagis, J-Poles, Log Periodics, and Verticals. Just pick the frequency, and RF Toolbox willdo the rest, giving you the information you need to quickly build the antenna.

It also performs the following calculations:
Coil Design
LC Filter Design
Transmission Line Loss
L Matching Networks
Pi Matching Networks
Impedance Calculations
Wire Gauge and Resistance and Voltage Drop
Wire Inductance Calculations

Black Cat CW Keyer
Black Cat CW Keyer lets you send morse code from your computer. You can type out the text to be sent (immediately or buffered) as well as create and send from one key macros. You can also send from text files. All this makes it incredibly easy to send CQs and for general QSOs as well. It's also a great tool for contesting!

Sound Byte
Sound Byte is a computerized cart machine for the Macintosh. It is very similar to the so-called cart machines used at radio stations in the past. Each recording - a jingle, advertisement, etc, was on a cartidge, which could be quickly selected and played.

How is this useful for ham radio? Well, you can use Sound Byte for contesting, for example. Each phrase (CQ call,station location, etc) you normally say could be assigned to a cart (button). Just click that button, and the phraseis played. Feed it into your rig with a VOX transmit control, and you're all set!

Android Ham Radio Apps

Ham Radio Software. MacOS Server App For AirSpy HF+ SDR. This app lets you run your AirSpy HF+ on your Mac, in macOS, without the need for Windows! It only works with the AirSpy HF+, no other AirSpy versions, as I do not have any other AirSpy SDRs to test with.
