    I have a straight talk phone and googled FILDIGI and can't seem to get it to work. Anyone have any suggestions?

    I googled "straight talk phone and Fldigi" and came up with nothing. Maybe you could provide more information?

    Have you tried the Fldigi group(s)? I read the postings in the WinFldigi group every day. The developer of Fldigi, W1HKJ, is always there and can probably answer you question.

    Fldigi is a computer program not a phone app. You need a PC to run it.

    This one has the same controls as CWGet, allowing the user to "fine tune it" for use as a decoder for checking your timing when sending with a code practice oscillator (or keyer).

    It is also handy to record your practice session as a MP3 file, so you can play it back some time later and see if you can read your own sending.

    Depending on your phone, it may be a challenge to connect it to your rig. The pinouts on the phone's headset jack are not generally compatible with a TRS source -- it is intended for a TRS earbud or a TRRS earbug/mic. You can get adapters to make this work, but it will take some research. If you can practice in a quiet location, you can just use audio coupling from the CPO to the phones' built-in mic.

    None of the decoders, PC or Android, are actually worth anything for on the air decoding, unless the following conditions are true -

    1. The signal has to be significantly above the noise level.
    2. The sender has to be sending correctly-timed Morse. Keyboard CW is perfect, of course, followed by paddles used by a skilled operator. The worst results are trying to decode straight keys and bugs, as most users of these mechanical sending devices just don't care about timing.

    Unsolicited advice - decoders are useful tools for learning to send Morse code, but are not a substitute for learning to receive Morse code. ;)
