    Default New release of MULTIPSK includes JT65

    New release of MULTIPSK includes JT65

    Patrick F6CTE has released a new version (4.8) of the data modes software MULTIPSK that incorporates coding/decoding of JT65.

    Patrick writes:

    Hello to all Ham and SWL,
    The new releases of MULTIPSK (4.8) and Clock (1.8) is on my Web site ( http://f6cte.free.fr).

    The main mirror site is Earl's, N8KBR:
    http://www.eqth.info/multipsk/index.html (click on "United States Download Site").

    Another mirror site is Terry's: http://www.hamshack.co.uk/
    Multispk associated to Clock are freeware programs but with functions submitted to a licence (by user key).

    The main modifications of CLOCK 1.8 are the following:

    1) Time extraction from a RFC868 Internet time server (accuracy: +/- 1 second). In this case, the licence is not required for the PC synchronization.

    2) It is given the possibility to translate, either from English or French, the labels, hints, error or information messages of this soft in any language. The 1.7.7 version of Clock has been translated to Spanish by Joachin (EA4ZB), from French. The translation file is on my Web site http://f6cte.free.fr

    The main modifications of MULTIPSK 4.8 are the following:

    1) Coding/Decoding of JT65 This mode is used for QRP transmissions either in HF, VHF or UHF. The JT65A sub-mode is used in HF. JT65 is also used for EME QSO (" Earth - Moon - Earth"), in VHF (or UHF).

    Additional functions are supplied so as to give possibility for blind or partially sighted Hams or SWL to use JT65 (pronunciation either in English or in French).
    Frequencies for JT65A: 1805, 3576, 7076 (USA), 10147, 14076, 18102, 18106, 21076, 24910 KHz

    2) It is given the possibility to translate, either from English or French, the labels, hints, error or information messages of this soft in any language. The 4.7 version of Multipsk has been partially translated to Spanish by Joachin (EA4ZB), from French. The translation file is on my Web site
    ( http://f6cte.free.fr).

    3) Improvement of the Acars VHF mode decoding and new functions.

    4) Possibility to display APRS (Packet/Pax/ Pax2/ARQ FAE), SYNOP/SHIP and ACARS positions on GoogleEarth map (if present on the PC).

    5) Improvements of the HF Fax mode.

    For information, for all the Multipsk exotic modes (PSKFEC31, PSK10, PSKAM, PSK63F, PSK220F (+DIGISSTV), CCW-FSK, MFSK8, THROBX, DominoF, DominoEX, PAX, CHIP, Voice, Packet 110 bauds...), I propose the QRP frequency: 14075 Khz USB (AF around 1000 Hz), at 17h00 UTC.

    73 Patrick

    Question Hmmmmmmm,

    Now, the question begs: Can you run this on a Linux platform?

    Respectfully,
    73,

    The instructions said to load Windows XP or better. So, I loaded Kbuntu Linux

    Default JT65A Frequencies

    Congratulations to Patrick F6CTE, on one of the best ham radio digital mode programs in the world!

    I just corresponded with Patrick recently, and he acknowledged the need to correct the JT65A frequencies listed in the message. Here are the corrections:

    VFO (dial) Frequencies 14076.0kHz USB and 10139.0kHz USB are the most active:


    The common JT65A frequencies are:

    JT65A HF Frequencies
    VFO FREQ
    28076.0 kHz USB
    24920.0 kHz USB
    21076.0 kHz USB
    18102.0 kHz USB
    14076.0 kHz USB
    10139.0 kHz USB
    7036.0 kHz USB (alternative)
    7039.0 kHz USB Europe
    7076.0 kHz USB USA
    3576.0 kHz USB
    1838.0 kHz USB
    1805.0 kHz USB

    The JT65A signal is normally about +1.3kHz to +1.5kHz higher than the VFO frequency:

    The instructions said to load Windows XP or better. So, I loaded Kbuntu Linux
    I also upgraded to ubuntu 7.10 instead of downgrading to Vista from XP.
    Considering you can get it free along with several compilers your distribution should be for Linux; not Windoze.

    I like MULTIPSK it works well.
    however i don't like the user interface. It is old and cumbersome, a big mess of little tiny buttons. It looks like the software was written for windows 3.11 and was never updated.
    and Yes a linux version would be nice.
