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.
No DLLs to load, just the Workbook.
Requires a PC and Excel 97 through 2010. Later versions should also work, but haven't been tested.
You must enable Macros upon opening.
