Interactive software



TRX-Manager V5.X operates under any 32 bit or 64 bit versions of Windows ®. More than 150 transceivers and several  other devices: rotors, antennas, wattmeters can be controlled locally or remotely with the same software solution. A TCP/IP Interface (TRXNET) is provided for your own development.

Full station control on one screen :
Radio (here IC-7100), Log, Rotor, Amplifier, Antenna (SteppIR), Wattmeter (LP100), DXCluster, DXCC...
and still much more...

Or only the compact DX Bar window - All DX information available in real time on your desktop

The performances, features and graphical interface of TRX-manager have been optimized for almost 100 transceivers (Setup for 4 transceivers is provided). However, each transceiver may have only 20 but also 50 or more than 100 CAT functions: TRX-manager does not support all of them for each transceiver. There is no table of the available functions (~5000-10000 cases ?). Generally, almost all real-time functions are supported. Macros are provided to suit particular needs . + PLease understand I don't own each of the 100 transceivers supported. Sometime, an update is required to support a particular function or to fix a wrong behavior; you just have to ask... Thank you.

(*) TRX-Manager GUI and Help are available in English and French. Interface (GUI) is translated from 50% to 80% in Spanish, Swedish, German, Polish (but Help is only available in English or French).
