On behalf of my Friend Andrea Salvatore IU4APC, I would like to introduce you to the KX3Companion.
Andrea is the italian owner of an Elecraft KX3. As a software developer Andrea has decided to use his skills to develop a Powerful and Exciting Android app. This brand new application will allow your cellphone or tablet to be used in conjunction with the KX3, taking the KX3’s field usability to the next level.
The name of the app is “KX3Companion”, which is now available at Google Play store.
Here is what Andrea Has to say about the KX3Companion.
"The KX3 Companion is an app that will let you take full advantage of the power and functionality of your Elecraft KX3 HF radio, making its use easier use and lighter to carry, as there is No need for a PC!
It will let you send and receive CW, PSK31 and RTTY by using your mobile phone or tablet keyboard. Optionally you can use an external Bluetooth keyboard connected to your Android device.
You can set up to 10 macros that are used as dynamic symbols for the Call, Name, QTH and Locator which is automatically updated.
Connection to your KX3 is accomplished through using the USB Serial cable that comes with the KX3 radio.
You’ll also need an inexpensive OTG Cable adapter to connect the serial USB to your mobile device. No other cables are needed!
The KX3 Companion app also lets you record full QSOs and log them, allowing you to export them to your favourite QSO logging software and/or service.
With KX3 Companion you can:
Send and receive CW, PSK31 and RTTY using your Android device keyboard
Read and Write messages with space for hundreds of characters (depending on your mobile phone or tablet screen size)
Switch mode (CW, PSK31, RTTY)
Set the frequency and go up/down bands
Record and recall up to 10 totally customized macros
4 dynamic symbols for Call, Name, QTH and Locator to be used on macros (you can customize the symbols)
Set the CW WPM (Words Per Minute) value with a slider
Have up to 10 presets to set power, ATU or whatever you want to program
Customize the serial baud rate, dynamic symbols and date formats to adapt the app to your setup and needs
Record full QSO logs (everything you send and receive is recorded and saved in a text file)
Log your QSO in CSV format and send them via email or to any external service supported by your mobile device (log date, time, mode, frequency, call, name, QTH and locator)
And that is just a start. I’m planning more features like ADIF and eQSL.cc support.
