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:
    https://callsign.remotetx.net/radio/
