Maybe I'm dreaming about the capabilities of PDA's, whether they are of the Palm or Windows CE OS flavor, but it would be nice to have radio control software available for these devices. In particular, I'm thinking of a mobile application where the radio is inaccessible (in the trunk), but operating, and a certain minimum amount of control is necessary (even while driving at 75 MPH in rush hour). Is there a possibility of seeing this? I know, I'm probably dreaming....  Would anyone else like to see this available?  Thanks.

Group working on one for the Kenwood TS-2000, see the Yahoo egroup TS2000Dev: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ts2000dev/
Look in the files section, VC projects.

I'm planning on adding this to a future version of MobileLog. My initial plan is to integrate it into the MobileLog program itself - that is, I'd like to plug the serial cable from my iPAQ into my rig (IC-706MKIIG) and have the frequency and band/mode display in the log track the radio. That'll mean one less thing to log on the PDA by hand. Additionally, you'll be able to control the rig by entering a frequency into the Freq box. I'm hoping to have this functionality (for at least the FT100, IC706 and FT817) in version 2.0.

Beyond MobileLog, I too have been thinking about the potential usefulness of a PDA controlled rig. I'm still thinking about just how I'd do it and whether anyone else would use it in the real world.

I have a PDA control program for my FT-817. Try a Yahoo group called Palm_Ham or something similar. They have listings of several control programs.
