Are their any good radio remote control programs that run on Android devices?  It would be nice to run my HF rig remotely using my tablet, and I might just finally get a smart phone if I could do it with the phone.  I have seen something called Pocket RXTX but it seems kind of limited to the rigs it will work with.

I am currently using parallels access and my Android. Works great so far. I like being able to see the screen on the Flex 5000.
No other programs needed.

You just need a program that remote logs to the computer at your radio via the internet. I and a few others have used Splashtop on Android devices to mirror the computer at the radio.

Thanks for the replies.  I will check into some of those programs.

How can one operate their radio from afar. Wouldn't you miss it?

I like being right there as that response comes into the headphones.
