Share your rig information to the web with CATWEB
Thanks for your interest in CATWEB, created by Atsign co-founder and ham radio enthusiast, Colin Constable.
CATWEB is an atPlatform app. When paired with another atPlatform app, @wavi, CATWEB allows ham radio operators to display online, automated and in near real-time, the frequency and modulation mode they’re using.
Along with CATWEB, we’ve also built a super simple micropublishing platform called @wavi. This app is used to create your profile or microsite that lives on a directory located at: https://wavi.ng/ @wavi profiles can be as brief or detailed as the author likes. With a little HTML know-how, they can contain videos, embedded music players, photos, and more. And now, Thanks to CATWEB, they can display your automated, nearly real-time frequency and modulation mode! Here’s CATWEB in action on Colin’s @wavi profile, located here: https://wavi.ng/@AI6BH.
Notice how the profile is named @AI6BH? Not only is that Colin’s call sign, it’s one of his atSigns, too. Keep reading to learn how to duplicate Colin’s setup so you can keep your ham radio friends up to date on where to find you.

At Atsign, we’re flipping the Internet upside down with our open-source Internet protocol and platform (the atPlatform). The atPlatform enables developers to build apps that are surveillance-free and private by design. People using these apps are able to own and control their own data and enjoy totally new online experiences. atPlatform apps don’t require people to create accounts with usernames and passwords in order to use them. Instead, people create one unique identifier, called an atSign, and use it across the entire app ecosystem. You get to be You, no matter which atApplication you’re using.
