Amateur Radio Control

My Excel Radio Memory Management spreadsheets are available here.  These are Excel Workbooks that manage radio memories and do real-time control.

Videos of my tape measure beam are below. 

The links below will download the files to your computer.

These Workbooks will work only on a PC. You can open the workbooks on the Macintosh, but buttons will not work.

Typical Features.
No DLLs to load, just the Workbook.
Requires a PC and Excel 97 through 2007.
You must enable Macros upon opening.

      Plain English and abbreviated entries.    F = FM 107 = 107.2
      All Memories on ONE sheet; includes scan limits & Call.
      DTMF Memories.
      User selectable memory groups and sections.
      Everything for one Memory on one line (row).
