Gnome RIG is a graphical user interface to the Ham Radio Control Libraries (version 1.1.2 or later), written using the Gtk+ and Gnome widgets. It is developed by Alexandru Csete, OZ9AEC.


gsat is a graphical client program to predict, which is a satellite tracking and orbital prediction program.

Norvald Ryeng (LA6YKA) and Thomas Ingebretsen (LA9ERA) wrote a first patch for predict and a second patch for gsat. The patch to gsat adds two plugins: radio_rigctld and radio_rotctld. These plugins allows gsat to control any rotator and radio supported by Hamlib.


Starting from version 0.7, HamFax, a QT/X11 application for sending and receiving facsimiles in amateur radio, is able to make use of Hamlib for triggering the transceiver when transmitting.


HDSDR (former WinradHD) is the High Definition Software Defined Radio program for Windows. For controlling / using a receiver directly, you need to install the receiver's ExtIO DLL, designed by Alberto di Bene (I2PHD), that can be downloaded here.


JRX: Virtual Ham Radio "a virtual interface for various amateur radios" is "a virtual radio receiver written in Java" by Paul, KE7ZZ. JRX is primarily a receiver with signal analysis capability. It has been tested with a number of Icom radios at Paul's disposal.


KLog is a Ham radio logging program for KDE. It features DXCC award and IOTA support, importing and exporting from/to TLF, ADIF, supports DX-Cluster, etc. KLog is developed by Jaime Robles, EA4TV.


Log4OM is a fast and simple software developed in C# for complete ham radio station management.

Some of the key functions are:

  • Interfaced with QRZ.COM e HAMQTH.COM for rapid search and QSO data enhancements (massive update supported).
  • Innovative graphic DX Cluster management, with SPOT real time view on world map and auto tuning of the radio with CAT support.
  • Super Cluster: An alternative cluster based on online data sent by users to
  • MySQL support for large databases and multi operator operations.
  • CAT support for numerous radios, through HAMLIB.
  • Cluster integrated with propagation informations by
  • ADIF import and ADIF / Excel (csv) / PDF export of log
  • Integrated with E-QSL, LOTW, ClubLog and
  • Fast and simple forms for help OM’s to write old good paper QSL with ease.
  • Complete log searching features, Log4Om enables the OM to update offline the QSO with updated informations.
  • Optimized for “paper to electronic” log conversion, with features that drammatically speeds up the speed of inserting QSO (auto-time functions with predefined QSO separations, automatically set timings for fast pile-up management)
  • Language selectable English and Italian
  • Complete label print feature


Ktrack is an KDE3 satellite prediction software, especially suited for radio amateurs operating through the satellites that are providing linear transponders. It can control the uplink/downlink of your transceiver(s). Ktrack is developed by Luc Langehegermann, LX2GT.


MALog is TF3MA's Tcl/Tk logging program.


PropNET is an ad-hoc 2-way (and potentially, "more-way") RF-based digital communication network whose activity is reported on the Internet. As participating stations periodically ID and exchange data, they report their activity to an Internet data-collection hub for propagation tracking. PropNETPSK is a Windows application.


PSKmail is a narrow-band mail delivery system for use by amateur radio hams via short wave (HF) communication. PSKmail is developed by Rein, PA0R.


[Pyrime] is a Rig Memory Editor written in pyQt4.


qle is a QSO Logger and log Editor for amateur radio operators who use the Linux operating system. Written in Perl/Tk for personal use in rag-chewing, DX-ing and casual contesting, 'qle' has logged 5000+ QSOs over the past few years. 'qle' is developed by Wilbert, ZL2BSJ.


RadioCorder (no active home page found), is a scheduling, recording, and playback application for shortwave listening on Win32.

Version 2.0 Release Notes

  • Uses HRD DDE protocol, SpectraVue or HAMLIB depending on which mode you select via Setup or INI file.
  • It can sync a Hamlib controlled radio with Spectravue for SDR.
  • Schedule is editable for both recordings, monitoring or transmitting events.
  • Schedule has look ahead capability.
  • Built in Support for controlling parallel or serial port.
  • VOX capability.
  • QSL export in .jpg file.
  • Recording Path is redundant.
  • Built in player for the recorded MP3.
  • Player has the ability to playback half the speed to easily identify transmissions.


SDR-Shell is a GUI for the DttSP Software Defined Radio (SDR). It has been hacked to make SDR-Shell work for IF applications in radios that Hamlib can interface to.


Smart Gnome Control provides a graphical user interface to multiple communications receivers using the Hamlib library. Right now, it is in alpha stage, but you can check it out from the CVS repository. Smart Gnome Control is developed by Mark J. Fine.


so2sdr is a ham radio contest log program that features a software-defined radio (SDR) bandscope. The program is written using Qt and is dual-platform, running in Linux and Windows.


Soundmodem is a software turning a standard PC soundcard into a packet radio "modem". The whole signal processing is done on the main processor CPU. The PTT control can be done through Hamlib.


Tlf, originally developed by Rein Couperus, PA0R, is now developed by Tom, DL1JBE and a supporting cast. Hamlib is used to get the rig's frequency and mode and track dx spots when logged in to a DX-cluser. Tlf is a contest logging program with networking support. Its user interface is partially based on TRLOG.


Tučnak is a VHF+ contest logbook. It was inspired from TACLog. Tučnak can control antenna rotators, and report frequency.


WSJT-X implements communication protocols or "modes" called JT4, JT9, JT65, and WSPR, as well as one called Echo for detecting and measuring your radio signals reflected from the Moon. The JTxx modes were all designed for making reliable, confirmed QSOs under extreme weak-signal conditions.


WSPR, the "Weak Signal Propagation Reporter", implements a protocol designed for probing potential propagation paths with low-power transmissions. WSPR 2.0 introduces rig-control. Developed by Joe Taylor, K1JT.


Xdx, a DX-cluster client for Linux which uses the rigctl binary to set your rig's frequency when double-clicking on a dx-spot. Originally developed by Joop Stakenborg, PG4I, Xdx is now maintained by Nate Bargmann, N0NB.


Xlog, a logging program for linux, which uses Hamlib to retrieve power, frequency, mode and signal strength while logging. Developed by Joop Stakenborg, PG4I and Stéphane Fillod, F8CFE, is now maintined by Andy Stewart.
