Ham Radio Remote Control from Anywhere.

The RemoteTx™ ham radio remote control system is an economical way to control your amateur radio station through the Internet with a phone, tablet, Mac or PC. There are 3 main parts to the solution.

  1. AT STATION: A Raspberry Pi 3 B/B+ (RPi) appliance running RemoteTx™ software (free download) at your station connected to your radio (USB) and the Internet (ethernet). (The RPi is NOT provided by RemoteTx™.)
       
  2. REMOTE CONTROL CLIENT: A mobile phone, laptop or tablet running a compatible Internet browser with broadband or LTE cellular Internet access.
  3. An active RemoteTx™ service SUBSCRIPTION linked to the operator’s call sign. This connects the radio station and the remote operator.

  • Remote control (rig control, audio and power control) is achieved by opening an Internet browser and going to:
