Controlling the Ham Computer – Elgato Stream Deck XL

Upper Left Hand Corner is the Stream Deck

It wasn’t until a friend told me that he just bought an Elgato Stream Deck, asking me what did I think about them? That I realized I bought the larger one three years ago and have been using it in my hamshack, but hadn’t mentioned it much here.

So what we have is 32 key keypad, with each key’s led face fully customizable to match the resulting key action you assigned.

I have mine set up to do normal station chores, and if left long enough to default to a multikey display of my callsign.

The minor scripting is simple and the results are fabulous.

There are 6-key, 15-key and 32-ley versions of the Stream Deck (Sept 2022 street prices were $80, $120 and $210 respectively.)
