SatPC32 can be used with the SDR programs HDSDR, SDR#, and SDR-Radio, all of which support the FUNcube Dongle Pro+ and other SDR dongles.

SatPC32 also supports Icom, Kenwood, and Yaesu radios using their native CAT commands.  There is no direct support for the Elecraft KX3, so it will be a major challenge having SatPC32 control the KX3 unless the KX3 will emulate a Kenwood (or Yaesu or Icom).
