Jerry and others,
I noticed in your email that you are looking for a solution to listen to
the beacons real-time, well some software control programs can
already. One that I use is TRX-Manager. I will control most of the
TenTec radios, but just about any other radio that has a computer
interface. One of the really neat features is it's ability to
automatically switch to the correct band and freq for each of
the beacons. You can lock on a particular location and watch it switch
the radio from band to band to follow that beacon or stick to a particular
band and watch it move your antenna to the correct heading for the beacon
(your rotator better be quick, a single beacon will not be on very long).
You can get a demo copy at :
I am not affiliated with TRX Manager except I have been a long time user..
But I also use :
Ham Radio Deluxe

traded my Jupiter for my Omin-VI+ (which has the bare minimum of

used Pegasus.... not to replace any of my rigs but to augment them
instead. I would love to be able to write beacon software that actually
listens through a rig for real time reception, etc.
