KAT500UI Version 1.1 now available

Thomas Lindner, DL2RUM, is happy to announce the availability of version 1.1 of his KAT500UI user interface for the Elecraft KAT500 antenna tuner.   KAT500UI can be downloaded from the Apple iTunes store.

New in this release:
  • UDP control for use with a non Elecraft radio: The tuner recalls a memory after a frequency change. RUMlogNG 3.4 or other N1MM (UDP control) compatible software is required.

KAT500UI is a simple tool for the Elecraft automatic antenna tuner KAT500. It is NOT a replacement of the Elecraft KAT500 Utility application. It duplicates the controls and indications from the front panel and it shows some further more internal states. You can place the tuner where it is more convenience for you and control it via this application.

If you use a non Elecraft radio, the application reads frequency information from your logger via UDP broadcasting. (RUMlog or other N1MM compatible software). This allows the tuner to recall saved memories.
