Does anyone know of any Ham software for the Apple II, and, if so, a source?

I also have an interest in Apple IIs.  Here's some RTTY, SSTV, and Hell software:

Also, try this site (look in particular at disks 74-79):

Thanks. I'll take a look.

I am also looking for Ham Radio Communication Package. It is supposed to have CW, rtty and SSTV capabilities.

A ten second search on Google would have answered this question more efficiently.

When you search Google for "Ham Radio Communication Package" what you find is, basically, one guy selling one 1978 version, which he has sold. A possible source I have found has not shown up on Google. I have also learned that the author is still around. So, hopefully, I'll be able to obtain a copy.

Try eBay and put "Want to buy" ads on here and QRZ. If you are going to Dayton this year, ask around there.

You can improve your Google search results by reading up a bit on Google search help.  I was able to find the links listed in under 1 minute.

It says it is an Apple II disk collection, can't say for sure if the ham software is with this. If you still have access to Usenet, try there. Most ISP's cut off free access to Usenet some time ago. Dayton Hamfest would still be a good source. If you are not going there this year, ask a friend to look or ask for the software for you.

Good Luck

There are many Apple II sites on the net. You will find utilities to convert apple disk images, transfer to Apple-compatible disks, and many more, including Beagle Bros stuff, DOS, ProDos and emulators. I've got two iic machines, both working: bought one new in 1983 and picked up the spare (including power supply and external floppy drive) in 2007 for $7 at GoodWill. Start with this ftp site, and have fun looking.

I wrote several Apple II logging, CW sending, and RTTY applications when I was in high school circa 1985-1986.

No chance of finding them on "the net" :-) but if I'm very lucky there may still be 5.25" floppies at my parent's house. They interfaced to the radio via the Apple's game port, bit banging with machine code.

I remember hearing about an Apple CW practice or QSO simulator program, called "QSO Kid" but have never seen a copy.

Here's a video of someone using a PK-232 interface with an Apple II (the Apple is nothing more than a terminal in this case): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K2XLk_yTq-4

Was the game port interface hardware custom, or commercial? If commercial, do you remember what it was?
