the Julian date and the day of the week.
 NetCalc  an RF Impedance Calculator (Downloads: 23,979)

NetCalc is broadly based on the
program NETCALC by Ian White. NETCALC was
described by Ian as a simple impedance calculator for working out Radio
Frequency network design ideas.
This Widget can be used on Windows and on older version of macOS (before 10.11 El Capitan).
You may also use the new web version
or download the files for local use in your browser.
 NGR Converter (Downloads: 5,863)

NGR Converter is a National Grid Reference to latitude and longitude converter.
The Widget converts between British National Grid References, latitude and longitude, and
IARU Locators.
 Ohm's Law Calculator (Downloads: 24,545)

This is a special purpose calculator which performs simple calculations using
Ohm's Law. Given any two of the four quantities  voltage, current, resistance
or power  the Widget calculates the values of the other two.
You may also use the new web version
or download the files for local use in your browser.
 Resistors (Downloads: 22,247)

The Resistors Widget is a special purpose calculator which can be used to decode
the colored bands on resistors (and some small capacitors).
 Roman Kalculator

This is a general purpose calculator which also features Roman numbers.
Version 1.0
 Roman Kalculator Hex

This is a general purpose calculator which also features Roman and hexadecimal numbers.
Version 1.0
 Sunrise Calculator (Downloads: 20,063)

Sunrise Calculator computes and displays the times of sunrise and sunset, given a
latitude, a longitude and a date.
The Widget can make allowances for altitudes of up to 15,240 metres (50,000 feet). The
altitude compensation calculation, performed by the Widget, is not part of the published
algorithm, on which the main calculation is based, and should be treated with caution.
This new version also computes and displays the times of moonrise and moonset.
 TLC  Transmission Line Calculator (Downloads: 2,482)

This is a special purpose calculator which performs transmission line
calculations. Various geometries are possible with the hot and cold conductors
having elliptic or rectangular shapes. The Widget calculates the line
characteristics and displays the voltage field.
 Toric Lens Converter

Version 2.0
This is a special purpose calculator which converts toric lens descriptions between the two standard formats.
It can also add the powers of two toric lines.
 Tx Line Calculator (Downloads: 3,135)

This is a special purpose calculator which performs simple transmission line
calculations. Given three line parameters, the Widget calculates the value of a
fourth. Two formulae are used, one for coaxial cable, the other for parallel
line.
 Wiring Calculator

This is a special purpose calculator which performs simple wiring calculations for copper wires used in low voltage circuits.
Given three of the four quantities circuit length, current, wire cross section and voltage drop, the Widget calculates the value of the
fourth.
WARNING: The calculator was designed to calculate the voltage drop in low voltage (12/24 volt) marine circuits where the voltage drop
due to long wire circuits is more often a problem than the current carrying capacity of the wires.
No attempt has been made to ensure that the results of any of the Widget's calculations conform to current electrical codes,
such as the NEC or IEC codes. Users must check these and other safety matters for themselves.
The user can choose to work in SI units or USA units.
