MacHPSDR is a native Mac implementation of a receiver for OpenHPSDR hardware by Jeremy McDermond (NH6Z)

System Requirements

MacHPSDR is targeted towards Snow Leopard (MacOS X 10.6). It may run on Leopard (10.5) but this configuration is not supported by the author. It is also only targeted towards Intel systems.


A binary download is available from Jeremy's web site. Just drag the application to your /Application folders to install it.

Running the Program

Just double-click the application. MacHPSDR has a copy of the Ozy firmware built into the executable and will load Ozy automatically for you. There are no requirements to run initozy or anything. There are no dependencies on other libraries either. Everything you need is in the application you downloaded.


Source code is available for MacHPSDR from Jeremy's SVN repository at:


All files (even though some might not be labelled yet) are distributed as open source under the GPL v2 license.


If you'd like to see how the program looks and works, Jeremy has posted some videos at his YouTube Page.

Missing Features

The big one right now is that there is no transmit capability. You have a receive only limitation. This will hopefully be removed in the near future.
