It's not about the receiver, it's about the software used with the
receiver. HDSDR and Gqrx can both be controlled by external programs.
I have made a couple of QSOs using computer control with Gqrx,
Gpredict, a FUNcube Dongle Pro+, and an FT-817. I know others have
used HDSDR with SatPC32 successfully.
