My pleasure. Let me know how else I can help.
could we please have an install package for 64 bit Debian Ham Radio release?
Do the existing .debs not work? If not, please feel free to add an issue to the issue tracker:
I have used it a few times now. On the plus side, it REALLY gets out according to PSKREPORTER. I am getting picked up in Europe with about 10 watts on 40 meters in daylight. On the minus side compared to PSK31 it seems a bit confusing as to who I am actually talking to and what is going on. Lot of fun though, I am sure it will be obvious soon enough.
Speaking of PSKREPORTER, when I am at the dock I have internet and shore power. If I just leave it run, does the program have a way to report back to PSKREPORTER and add to the data?
Go to File - Settings - Reporting to get to the options that let you set it up to use PSKReporter
The upgrade to the new version went smoothly. I made a contact within a few minutes of running the new program and with a relatively strong signal went to "turbo" speed. The experience was great! I turned my power to 10 watts and "turbo" still had no problems. Thanks for the new version with options for faster speeds. I hope this generates a larger community of amateurs who will use the new features.
I have installed on a Mac. Things seem to be generally working, but I notice there is no HB button and the menu items for sending HB are disabled. Did I miss a setting or? Thanks. de KZ7PDB
Yes. You have to enable HB and HB is only available in NORMAL speed (for optimal operations and best use of bandwidth).
Thank you... found it and found some online documentation that is helping. 73!
This reminds me of UUCP bang path email from the 1970s and 1980s where the email address
was defined by a path of machines such as: pdp10!router22!bigsite!foovax!barbox!user
(example from Wikipedia)
That pre-dated domain name system (DNS) addresses that are still in use today with formats like email@example.com
Congrats on the new release, this looks like some really cool software.
