Rig Control

Rig control refers to the capability of remotely controlling a transceiver (the “rig”) using a computer. The following is a selection of open source rig control software:

Project NameDescriptionLanguageLicensePlatform
flrigFlrig is a graphical ham radio transceiver control program designed to be used either stand-alone or as an adjunct to fldigiC?Mac/Win/Linux
hamlibThe Hamlib project's purpose is to develop flexible and portable shared libraries that offer a standardized API to control any radio oriented equipment through a computer interface.C?Linux
GNOME RIG / GrigGrig is a simple Ham Radio control (CAT) program based on the Ham Radio Control Libraries (Hamlib). It is intended to be highly generic presenting the user to the same graphical user interface regardless of which radio is being controlled. Grig supports the most commonly used CAT commands that are implemented by Hamlib, and integrates well with other ham radio programs like Xlog and gMFSK. Thanks to Hamlib, grig works with most CAT-capable amateur radios. You can check out the Supported Radios page at the Hamlib website.CGPLLinux
OmniRigA COM component for transceiver/receiver CAT control. Features: multi-threading (multiple programs, written by different authors in different languages, can control the radio via Omni-Rig at the same time); external rig description files (the support of a new rig model can be implemented just by creating an ini file that describes the CAT commands of the radio)PASCAL?Windows
