I have a new MacBook Pro so have been setting up my most commonly used Ham Radio apps from scratch. Having tried various apps for digital modes and logging on the Mac, this time round I’m just installing the ones that I use most or found I preferred.
Here’s my run down of apps:
- WSJT-X (https://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/k1jt/wsjtx.html) for running JT65, JT9 and FT8 digital modes
- FLDIGI (http://www.w1hkj.com/) – for all other digital modes, PSK, RTTY etc
- For logging from FLDIGI to RUMLog – this script (https://www.machamradio.com/blog/2015/02/27/fldigi-to-rumlogng-applescript-setup/) which can be run as a macro from FLDIGI
- JT-Bridge (http://jt-bridge.eller.nu/) – captures log entries from WSJT-X and transfers to RUMLog
- RumLogNG (http://www.dl2rum.de/rumsoft/RUMLog.html) – log book app
- For contesting: RUMPed and CocoaModem http://www.w7ay.net/site/Applications/cocoaModem/
