    Multi Psk

    I use it occasionaly and it`s fine but a bit complicated at 1st but once you get the hang of it, it`s fun .:)

    I second that emotion. HRD is a fine program that integrates everything one would need and not just in the digital world either. MultiPSK (I have said it before) is way too busy, too many colors, steep learning curve and one of the most un-user friendly programs I have ever seen.

    Sorry, MultiPSK works, but HRD wins hands down.

    Thank You Patrick F6CTE

    Patrick F6CTE,

    If you are reading the mail here I just want to say thank you for all the time spent on your MuliPSK program...nice digital tool to have! Many thanks for that and all you do for Ham Radio.

    Not every software application is for all and everyone but it sure is nice to have such talented Hams doing such neat things for the rest of us to use. I use many different digital software applications (some for different reasons) and this one sure has worked very well for our 30 Meter Digital SPOT page and for our 'Auto' Spotters to report 30 Meter Digital activity throughout the World:

    Does HRD not support sound card interfacing?

    I use both, but even DM780 does not have all the various modes contained in MultiPSK.
    I like MultiPSK in the RV-mobile for monitoring SSTV, APRS, automatic mode detection of unknown signals, etc. I prefer HRD for its more friendly rig-control. I find MultiPSK also has a more sensitive sound card decoder in packet and APRS mode. I'm a registered user of both systems and consider MultiPSK well worth the money.

    Just a warning to those who use ALE: the use of automated periodic sounding by U.S. hams is likely illegal, as they appear to be illegal automatic beaconing below 28.200, illegal automatic control of a digital station, and prohibited one-way transmissions. The FCC is looking into this, and Propnet, right now.

    Bonnie, KQ6XA, will tell you it's legal, but the initial response from Riley Hollingsworth is that it is NOT.

    MultiPSK

    Thanks Patrick! It's a good program for me...

    Using HRD for most Ham QSO's, but I use MultiPSK for listening to odd modes.

    The user interface is busy, and that's complicated for some. If you can beat up on a modern rig's menu and learn it, you'll find MultiPSK useful.

    Keep an open mind and play, it grows on you, like an interesting French cheese. The messy interface goes with my messy shack... :eek:
