Mike’s BTU Calculator For Fuel/BTU Price Comparison

This is a excel spreadsheet I started some years ago and have added many types of fuel/BTU’s over the years. Since I am in the process of digging up old tools I created over the years to share with you folks,  and I thought this one was a bit more important now-a-days !

Most BTU  Data from US DOE. Compare Nat Gas to Coal or Propane (LP) to Gasoline/Petro to Bio-Butanal or Methanol. Extra stuff related to the BTU content of Solar Energy included.

You will need One Of The Following to be able to work with this spreadsheet.

Microsoft Excel Viewer (free from Microsoft)

OpenOffice (free open source office package at openoffice.org)

Microsoft Excel (big bucks)

and The Will To Do It (free but requires effort) & click the link below.

Mike’s NRG Conversion Worksheet (BTU/Cost).XLS

It is not perfect but a great tool ! Enjoy !

Enter your prices for fuel in your area and your consumption of your fuel type and see what it would cost you in other fuels to heat with etc…

Kitty-C.A.T. for the Yaesu FT-1000 & D (dos)

Here is a C.A.T. software program I wrote back in the 90’s (1993-95)for controlling a FT-1000 when my heart was set on being a programmer. I did sell this software but here it is now for free to use and distribute but not alter or sell without my expressed written permission.
It was written for MS-DOS OS but might work on others like Linux with DOS EMU.Windows: You might need to declare the com port use.


Please let me know if you are able to run it on other O.S. as I do not have the radio now-a-days to test it and the software will not work with other models.
It is quite deluxe for its time and even now. Please enjoy it and perhaps if there is new interest in it I will start a forum page for it to give support through.

Extract the files to a floppy and run kcinstal.bat program or just copy all the files to a folder and run kcat.bat
Enjoy and keep in touch !
