Just a quick update as a number of people have been asking about the progress on the new ACOM Director version 2. I had hoped to have it completed by now, however work and life commitments have meant that progress has been slower than expected. However I am now able to dedicate 2 days a week to working on it so things should get moving at a good speed again now.
The ACOM600S protocol is now implemented along with a new user interface to match the look of the ACOM600S. I’m just working on unifying ACOM Directors own protocol so it can support both types of amplifier without having to use two different versions, once this is complete I will be releasing an alpha version so we can get any bugs ironed out of the basics before adding some of the more advanced features I’m wanting to include.
My aim is to have a version released that you can all try out sometime in June.
In the meantime, here is a quick video of the new user interface in test mode showing the operation of the new bar graphs.
As some readers may know, I’ve been working on a new version of ACOM Director for some time now. Progress has been slow due to work commitments however the new version will be available in the next couple of months and will provide full support for the ACOM 600 in addition to the ACOM 2000.

I’m pleased to announce that ACOM Director 0.8.0 is now available. Following on from the introduction of Logger32 support for frequency tracking in version 0.7.1, this version now contains support for DXLog integration to allow the ACOM 2000A to track the frequency of your radio for users of DXLog.
Version 0.8.0 also contains many changes behind the scenes in preparation for support of other hardware being added in the future.
Please note that this version is largely untested as I no longer have access to a real ACOM2000A anymore and rely on a “virtual” software emulated ACOM2000A for testing.
I was having a bit of a clear out this evening and came across this little device, it’s an old GPS bluetooth adaptor that I purchased years ago to use with my ancient SPV Smartphone (I was an early adopter).
ACOM Director 0.5.0 (Beta) is now available for download
This version contains the ability to remotely control the software over a network or internet connection, please note that this functionality is very experemental and will likely have some teething problems.
Following the initial release of the ACOM Director beta the feedback has been excellent and it appears to have been very well received by the ACOM 2000 user community.
Thank you to everyone who downloaded a copy and tried it out, your bug reports, comments and opinions are invaluable in moving the software forward.
I am now working on the next beta release which i hope to make available soon and will be putting up a dedicated page on my site for ACOM Director, this will contain information on what type of cable is needed to connect to the ACOM 2000 and information on what type of interface is needed to support the remote power on features.
Thanks again to everyone who has tried out the software.
