linSmith is a Smith charting program. Users can enter either discrete components or transmission lines, see the results on screen, and/or generate Postscript output. Component values can be changed numerically or using scrollbars. Problems can be solved on-screen, and high-quality Postscript can be output for publication.
Gpredict is a real time satellite tracking and orbit prediction program. Besides the general orbital data for satellites, gpredict can also calculate the footprint, visibility, doppler shift, signal loss, and signal delay for each satellite relative to one or more ground stations. The calculated data can be viewed in tables, on maps, or on polar graphs.
Baudline is a time-frequency browser designed for scientific visualization of the spectral domain. Signal analysis is performed by Fourier, correlation, and raster transforms that create colorful spectrograms with vibrant detail. Conduct test and measurement experiments with the built in function generator, or play back audio files with a multitude of effects and filters. The baudline signal analyzer combines fast digital signal processing, versatile high speed displays, and continuous capture tools for hunting down and studying elusive signal characteristics.
xtalfind checks whether any XTAL is suitable for a HAM radio circuit (TX, RX). Given a base XTAL frequency, it shows you all possible uses within HAM bands. It features CW TX and direct conversion RX. It supports 455kHz, 10.7MHz, and custom IF value receivers, DRM, and SDRadio applications.
Salut is a small program that performs calculations on simple networks around two-port devices (like transistors) characterized by s-parameters, at radio frequencies (RF). It has the ability to model components in series with a two-port block, like an inductance from the common lead to ground. Salut is also not restricted to the usual common emitter or common source configuration even though many semiconductor manufacturers only provide s-parameters for this case.
PREDICT is a multi-user satellite tracking and orbital prediction program. It can provide a real-time display of data such as a spacecraft's sub-satellite point, azimuth and elevation headings, Doppler shift, path loss, slant range, orbital altitude, orbital velocity, footprint diameter, orbital phase (mean anomaly), squint angle, eclipse depth, the time and date of the next AOS (or LOS of the current pass), orbit number, and sunlight and visibility information.
