Great computer interface  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I have used N4PY computer software control for both Ten Tec and Icom radios for several years now and was pleased to learn that Carl Moreschi (N4PY) had a Ten Tec Eagle version when I bought the Eagle earlier this year. N4PY does a great job of controlling the Eagle on the computer, and I only adjust the AF/RF gain, adjust the pass band tuning, and use the internal antenna tuner on the radio itself. N4PY also allows the user to interface with a third party logging program (I use WriteLog), a panadapter (I use TRX-Pan, but PwrSDR-IF works as well), and CW Skimmer (which transfers its spots to WriteLog’s Band Map). With this set up you can view a wide swath of whatever band you may be working, and as Skimmer spots calls on the Band Map, you can click on it and it is sent to the logging entry screen and tunes the radio. You can search for signals on the panadapter screen or on the Skimmer screen, point and click on either screen and the radio is tuned to that frequency. Alternatively you can use a program like VE7CC’s cluster program to input spots to the Band Map and have those calls transfered to the logging program entry screen and tune the radio to that signal. Also, using the N4PY screen you can tune the radio through the band, and both the panadapter and Skimmer follows the radio frequency on those screens. All of this interaction is possible because I have N4PY as the base from which these programs are interfaced. N4PY (Carl) is always available for questions, and answers very quickly to any questions I may have had over the years on email. He continually upgrades his programs. Those are free during the registration year, and the programs will run fine after the registration year is over. If you wish to continue to receive updates after the registration year, there is a $30 upgrade fee each year. VE7TK (Rick Williams) at VE7TK has a great write up on how to integrate all this at VE7TK.com that is free. I also use K5FR’s (Steve Nance) VSP Manager for virtual comports and is free for the asking and works better than others I have tried. The hardware I use to make this all work is a Ten Tec Eagle, LP-Pan, EMU-0204 sound card and a HP Pavilion dv2000 laptop computer. The radio needs IF out and my Eagle came from the factory with it installed, but there are mod instructions available if you have the skills. If you would like to see a screen shot of all this in play I would be glad to email you one. 73, John
