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.
