Hi,

As I tune around with my HF radio in the SWL bands, is there software that can monitor what frequency I'm tuned to and tell me if that frequency is associated with a known transmitter?

I have a Kenwood TS-480SAT. I have the RS-232 connected to my computer. I'd like to run software to monitor the frequency of the radio via the serial port.

Thanks,
John

For broadcasters, you can go to short-wave.info, and input the frequency to see if it matches up, or select a broadcaster and language to find what you want.

The requirement is, "run software to monitor the frequency of the radio via the serial port."

One application I know of that does exactly that is the now defunct Shortwave Log. It monitors your freq and shows stations that are scheduled to be there. The logs are free and updated regularly.

It's still floating around the web..
