The Rigserve Project in a Nutshell

  • Python-based network server (Internet or local) for control of Amateur Radio gear, communications equipment, and similar devices.
  • Human-readable command structure
  • General and flexible device interfacing allows connection of a large number of radios and device types.
  • Clean, object-oriented definition of rig interfaces.
  • Client interface is independent of programming language and operating system. (Telnet accessible)
  • Initial support for Ten-Tec Orion and Icom IC-R8500. Update: Now includes IC-R75, IC-765, and Ten-Tec Omni VI/VI plus.
  • Inspired by the Hamlib project.
  • Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) project, hosted at Sourceforge.net
  • Full documentation at the Rigserve wiki.

Rigserve is currently released at version 0.31. It is at "alpha" maturity. I.e., it works fairly well for specific rigs, but it is subject to considerable change in future revisions. Developers, testers, and users are solicited!
