RadioCom 6 NEWS


download RadioCom 6.0 DEMO   here!

RadioCom 6.0 is a new leap forward after the successful predecessor RadioCom 5. It is able to control several radios and significantly improve sound quality. RadioCom6 transmits and receives data (SSTV, PSK31, RTTY, Weather fax, Synop, Navtex, CW and more) and from the Internet www.meteoserver.net (world wide satellite pictures) in one program. Two Radios can be connected simultaneously to 1 sound card only. You can run and operate several decoders at the same time. The Digital Sound-Processor (DSP) of the sound card is used. That is why the quality is better than anything compatible. The moment RadioCom starts, some of the foremost changes are in plain view: it is distinctive and eye-catching. Colors are subtler and the overall looks are just magnificent, never seen before.

Multi-display capability
For efficient operation the work area should be as large as possible. With RadioCom 6 you will be able to conveniently adapt the user surface to your liking. You can even spread it across several monitors. For example, you can display two RadioControls on one screen and decoders and analyzers on another. Using the integrated “color management” the window colors of the user interface can be set as well. This can improve the visibility extremely if you operate for example in the night/evening.

DualRadioControl
DualRadioControl with RadioCom 6 is now able to control two radios simultaneously. The supplied Bonito Switchbox features RadioControl for more than 100 radios without the need for additional hardware since the switchbox includes level converters for ICOM, YAESU, Kenwood, TenTec, and others (
see list). New USB-controlled radios are also supported of course. The FrequencySlider and the possibility to use the mouse wheel for tuning signals significantly increases user comfort. This is also true for the completely new flexible user surface.

Frequency-Manager
The Frequency-Manager comprises of one main and 8 user databases. They can log all complex settings of a radio broadcast station and bring them up again when needed. These databases also include all decoder data, Keppler data (for satellite reception) as well as other decoder data. The main database is kept up to date using the online updating function. The Time-Manager helps you plan various tasks. You will never miss a beat.

Frequency and Channel Scanner
The Frq-/Channel-Scanner-Functions display signal strength, audio events or graphs in 3D. Event logging makes it possible to subsequently analyze events with frequency and time. With Audio-Recorder you can record and play back signals for later analysis or decoding.


Multimode En-& Decoder
MultiDecoding RadioCom 6 decodes all common modes such as WeatherFax (in 1:1 resolution!), SatFax (in 1:1 resolution!), RTTY, CW, SSTV (all popular Modes like Scottie, Robot, Martin, Wrase, MMSSTV incl. the Bonito Modes and a Mode Creator) , PSK (PSK31, Q- and B-PSK) and Synopsis in superior quality. Now you can use several and even different decoders parallel! You may decode 6 PSK signals simultaneously while receiving Fax, SSTV or something else on the other channel. Since every decoder has its own window everything is displayed in a very user-friendly way.

The TX pages were designed to be clearly arranged and simple to use. Images, for example, can be brought into the TX window simply by drag and drop, and be sent off immediately. You can queue up several images and text and RadioCom will send them out one by one. All images can be viewed and edited using the ResultViewer.

FAX coming soon :-)

SatFax
RadioCom 6 is able to receive and display Satellite Fax in high resolution, live and synchronously without the usual Doppler effects. In addition the integrated SatTracking program allows you to view all satellites on a world map for tracking.

The AudioController controls all audio functions, drivers and mixers, as well as the special AudioSquelch and the DSP-filters with the new FFT-E-Equalizer (Fast-Fourier-Transformation-Extreme).

DSP-Equalizer
RadioCom 6 uses the digital sound processor (DSP) of your soundcard with special techniques the quality is higher than anything you have come across before. RadioCom6 is able to improve the sound quality in ways that are impossible even with expensive DSP receivers. The audio signal reaches the computer directly through a standard soundcard. The filtered received signal is made audible by the computer speakers. Even completely noise-covered signals are improved in such way that the effect of the integrated equalizer can be heard very clearly. This equalizer lets you arrange several notch filters within one band pass filter, or create a filter curve with custom wave pattern and variable slope at 2-Hz resolution. Simply draw your desired filter curve with you own complex characteristics and systematically eliminate interference.

Analyzer
RadioCom 6 also have a lot Displays to analyze the Signal in real-time. Dual-Scope improves the analysis of cause and effect of signal quality on the result. Spectrum Analyzer, Time-Spectroscope and X/Y-Scope are also available.

Satellite Image Download Service
The integrated Satellite Image Download Service allows you to access worldwide satellite pictures from NOAA, MeteoSat Goes, MTSat, etc. via internet (www.meteoserver.net), and automatically creates impressive animations.

As you can see RadioCom 6 put everything in one program and
there is no need for you to think about a software program for each mode.

Which Radios are supported?

RadioCom is supporting more than 100 Radios. You'll find all supported Radios here.

We extend this list constantly. If your radio does not appear on the list, just ask us by e-mail.

DEMO
You can download a DEMO version of MeteoCom 6 Internet Edition here.

It is a Demo and not a 30 Day Trial Version.

Is Windows Vista supported?
Yes, of course. RadioCom 6 supports all Vista 32 Bits versions.
We recommend to install Service pack 1 for a better performance.


System requirements
SSB-Receiver or Transceiver (remote controlled if possible)
RadioCom6 can be combined with almost all makes of receiver. For example, those produced by Sony, Panasonic, Grundig, and Siemens, and any others with SSB reception. However, these cannot use timer-operated remote/radio control. We recommend controllable Radios, such as those made by Yaesu, ICOM, Kenwood, JRC, AOR, and Skanti. In the delivered switchbox is already the control-electronic inside to remote control for more than 100 receivers and transceivers.


Computer:
The computer must have an Intel Pentium/Celeron processor with at least 1 GHz, 256 MB RAM, a bi-directional sound card with a LINE-IN port, a spare COM port, and either Windows 2000/XP/Vista/Win7 or higher installed, as well as a graphics card with 1280x1024 32 bit color resolution.

 

 

You don’t need a level converter!
It already comes with the software package for most radios.
This reduces the cost to a minimum to upgrade to the digital age.
