Receiver Software Applications

From The RadioReference Wiki

Please only list applications that support multiple receivers (not scanners) here, as well as receivers for which we currently don't have an article. Be sure to check the specific receiver article for software dedicated for that radio. Anything in bold has additional ham transceiver related functionality.
As newer PCs don't have serial ports, connections must be made between the radio and the PC through USB. This can present some difficulties in understanding how to configure the connection correctly. Please see our Connecting scanners via USB article for more information.
