K3, KX3 and K2 Control Software

If  you have your own K3, KX3 or K2 control software you would like to distribute we can provide links to it here. We want as many packages as possible to run with the K2, so please feel free to contact us with your information and we'll add it ASAP. With the numbers of K3/KX3/K2 owners out there we fully expect you to quickly overtake us in your ability to come up with neat applications!

 

Most K3 programs will also work with the KX3.

K2 Remote and K2 Voice Program Downloads and Instructions

K2 Voice provides complete K2 voice feedback (frequency, mode etc.) via you PC. ( K3 Voice is in final development and test.)

We have written K2Remote  as a very basic introduction to what can be controlled on the K2 and K3 via RS-232 or USB. The authors above have extended this concept in a number of excellent ways! 

 To save these files, rather than running them directly from the web site, you may need to right click on their links and then chose the "Save Link As" option for Netscape, or the "Save Target As" option from Microsoft Explorer. 

When possible, we will post updates to these programs in both the full install form and the much, much smaller K2 Voice and K2 Remote .EXE files (<150KB). In most cases, once you have done a first full install, which includes all the Windows .DLL routines needed by the programs, you can download just the .EXE version of each update without all of the extra full install overhead.

Note: If you experience out of memory problems during loading of the Windows installer engine included in the complete (2) K2 Voice and (2) K2 Remote  installation programs, or if you are running Windows NT, you  should first download the Microsoft Installer to a temp directory and run it to install it on your system. Then download the (1) K2voice  or (1) K2 Remote installation program above, which does not try to install the installer engine..

Our goal is to make the K3 and K2 useful for hams who are unable to see the normal controls and displays. It will report most common operations on  using the soundcard in your PC. Both programs report the frequency, mode, filter selections, split, VFO a/b etc.

The Programs operate in one of three modes:
