My station is 30 miles away and I would like to run it remotely.

I have Yaesu radios and they do not lend themselves to remote operation as well as the Icom radios. I'm thinking of using a IC 7300 and the RS-BA1-V2 software.I want to use a remote controlled antenna switch that if connected to the radio will change antennas when the radio changes bands.I also want to control the rotor with ROTOR-EZ for HY-GAIN rotors.

Programs I will be using;
Icom Remote control RS-BA1-V2

What program should I use to remote connect the 2 computers? Team Viewer seems as it is liked a lot but, they seam to think Ham Radio is a business and want to charge you. Are there any free programs that will keep me from getting hacked? If I need to pay for one witch one should I use?

I have used Google to death and watched so many you tube videos that all I have managed to do is confuse myself.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and any help you can give.

I use this for tech support:


I got the paid version because it is just a one-time fee, (unlike TeamViewer) and I can keep everybody in the directory. But the free version is fine for what you need.

Also, Windows 11 has something called Quick Assist. I also use that if a customer requests.

Tnx & 73,
