Make FSK2 great again! :-) PS2x5 - simple, robust and bit-transparence mode

Sergei Podstrigailo
 

Hello, All!

PS2x5 mode (document version 1.1)

PS2x5 is an experimental streaming protocol over FSK2

It can be considered an improved version of AMTOR-FEC (SITOR-B, NAVTEX) with a more
powerful FEC based on Reed-Solomon code RS(31,15) and with much more robust error control.

The probability of receiving a corrupted data chunk is practically eliminated -
a data block (7 bytes) is either received without errors or it is not received at all.

Block numbering ensures that if less than eight blocks are not received that
information about the number of missed characters is also preserved
(unaccepted characters are replaced by underscores).

The full set of single-byte characters (0...255) is supported.

The protocol is insensitive to spectrum inversion
(i.e . USB or LSB selection when the signal is forming as AFSK).

The data rate is about 0.36 of the baud rate.
That is, at a baud rate of 25 bauds data rate will be 9 bps,
i.e. some over 60 LPM.

This is why the variant "25 Bd Speed/50 Hz Shift" is proposed as a starting point
for "medium-bad" propagation conditions.

When the baud rate is changed it is recommended to choose the frequency shift equal
to the speed or twice as much.

The protocol details:

Transmitted text is divided into blocks of seven bytes.
A four-bit block number is appended to the each block.
The first eight blocks of transmission are numbered as 8...15,
the next blocks are numbered cyclically as 0...7.

The seven bytes of data and the block number are packed into 12 five-bit symbols,
then 15 bits (three five-bit symbols) of CRC are added to them.

Then 16 check symbols of the Reed-Solomon code are added to the block. So up to eight
erroneous symbols in a each block can be corrected.

The last block has a different from another blocks CRC and includes the EOT(0x04)
symbol and then zero to six NUL(0x00) symbols (to fill the block ).
It allows to determine the exact number of transmitted bytes and to detect the fact
that the transmission is not fully received.

Then the resulting block of 31 five-bit symbols is transmitted sequentially
(high bit of a symbol first) using differential FSK2-modulation.

0 is encoded by frequency shift, 1 is the same frequency.

The full bit transparency and precise transmission boundaries allow:
- transfer any binary files without additional transcoding;
- use PS2x5 protocol as physical and transport layer of various
packet protocols, including AX25 and APRS.

This mode is implemented in the beta version of TrueTTY (Windows)
https://www.dxsoft.com/truettyb.zip
and in the beta version of FSKchat (Android)
https://www.dxsoft.com/fskchatb.apk

New release of MULTIPSK 4.45.3 (QR Code in "B/W24" SSTV mode) #Multipsk

Patrick Lindecker
 

New release of MULTIPSK (4.45.3)

 

Pour les francophones: la version en français de ce message se trouve sur mon site (http://f6cte.free.fr). Il suffit de cliquer sur le lien "Principales modifications (courriel avertissant de la sortie de la nouvelle version)".


Hello to all Ham and SWL,

 

The new releases of Clock (1.11.11) and MultiPSK (4.45.3) are on my Web site (http://f6cte.free.fr/index_anglais.htm).
The mirror site is Earl's, W8BR: https://www.paazig.net/f6cte/MULTIPSK_setup.exe

The MD5 signature of the downloaded MULTIPSK_setup.exe file to, possibly, check (with WinMD5 for example), that the downloading works without error, is equal to:

8a907eb9187f25843e41f2610851d728

Multipsk associated to Clock are freeware programs but with functions submitted to a licence (by user key).

 

Modifications of Clock 1.11.11: the HBG station has been removed and FRANCE-INTER is now called "FLE".

 

The main improvement of MULTIPSK 4.45.3 is the following:

 

Insertion of a QR Code in SSTV, sub-mode "B/W24"


In the B/W24 sub-mode (black and white format, permitting the transmission of a 320x240 pixels picture in 24 seconds), it is proposed to insert a QR Code label. This one, of normal or small size, can code up to 47 characters. At reception, this QR Code label will be decoded, stored and the Ham position (Locator) possibly displayed on a map. This label can also, of course, be decoded by a QR Code application installed on a PC, a tablet, or a mobile phone.

 

The SSTV mode and, consequently, the QR Code are freeware, so without time limitation.

About the QR Code implemented in Multipsk, see general specifications below, as well as instructions to operate QR Code in RX/TX.

 

Other improvements:

 

·                     Possibility to scroll the fax image using the mouse wheel,

·                     Multipsk can be used as a VLF (Very Low Frequencies, 0 to 24 kHz) receiver on the sound card, the AF signal having been previously filtered and amplified, then directed to the microphone sound card input. In this case, the HF frequency can be forced to 0 Hz by clicking on "->0".

·                     Possibiliy, in EPIRB, to fix one error (on a bit) or none. In this last case, the probability to decode a not valid frame becomes extremely weak.  Moreover, not valid positions are detected.

·                     Addition of the "No duplicate" option in POGSAG, so as not to display the successive repetitions of the same message.

·                     Update of the VDL2_Ground_Stations.txt (for the VDL2 mode). Thanks to Sergio. Note the extension to 5000 lines of this file.

 

Note about translation of Multipsk.exe and Clock .exe:  the 4.45.2 version of Multipsk has been translated to Spanish by Joachin (EB4Z), from French.

See: http://f6cte.free.fr/Translation_files.htm.

Particular specifications of the QR Code used by Multipsk in the "B/W24" sub-mode

 

In the B/W24 sub-mode (black and white format, permitting the transmission of a 320x240 pixels picture in 24 seconds), it is proposed to insert a QR Code label. This one, of normal or small size, can code up to 47 characters. At reception, this QR Code label will be decoded, stored and the Ham position (Locator) possibly displayed on a map. This label can also, of course, be decoded by a QR Code application installed on a PC, a tablet, or a mobile phone.

 

Multipsk codes the QR Code according to the "ISO/IEC 18004 - First edition 2000-06-15" standard. The QR Code has been invented by Denso-Wave and made public in 1999.

The specificities of the QR Code used by Multipsk are:

·                     The version 2 (25 x 25 modules) is the sole used, but the 4 correction levels (H, Q, M and L) are used.

·                     The "Alphanumeric" mode is the sole used.

·                     To simplify the coding and the decoding, the sole mask used for data is the one which carries the conditon "(i+j) mod 2=0", i.e. the "Mask Pattern Reference=000" according to the table 23 of the ISO reference.
The other masks are not used.

·                     The width of the quiet zone is standard and equal to 4 modules.

 

Note: these specificities permit to maximize the QR Code decoding quality, by limiting the number of possibilities.

 

The QR code is located in the lower right corner of the SSTV picture (320x240 pixels in B/W24).

A module is equal to 6 x 6 pixels for the standard format and 3 x 3 pixels for the small format.

 

Use of the QR Code in the sub-mode B/W24

If snapshots don't appear, directly download the file: http://f6cte.free.fr/Use_of_the_QR_Code_in_the_SSTV_sub-mode_BW24.pdf

It is described a basic use. For the other options in RX and in TX (as the header or not...), see the different possibilities in the SSTV manual.

It is reminded that SSTV frequencies are, in kHz: 3730 (LSB), 7035 (LSB), 14230 (USB), 21340 (USB), 28680 (USB) and 144500 (FM).

Start Multipsk, click on "RX/TX screen", then on the "SSTV" mode and finally on the "B/W24" sub-mode.

To transmit a QR Code

Confirm that the "QR Code insertion" button is pushed. Enter in the editor, without carriage returns and separating words with spaces, as a minimum, your Ham call sign, first name and Locator, as for example "FX9XYZ PIERRE JN18FT".
Try to limit your text to 20 characters, so as to keep with the best correction level (H) and so to be confident about the good decoding of your QR Code.

Add the same text in the "SSTV TEXT" editor and position it in the upper part of the picture. You can store this picture, using the "diskette" icon, in a FX9XYZ.BMP file (for example). Once done, the next time you will only have to load this file.

Transmit this picture clicking on the "Transmit" button.

You can choose between a standard QR Code format and a small one. The second one is 4 times smaller than the standard format, but it is also 4 times less sensitive (in terms of Signal to Noise ratio).
See the difference below.

To receive a QR Code

Each time you want to receive a new SSTV picture, click on the "Synchro" button. For completely automatized SSTV reception, see the SSTV manual ("Auto Save" and "Auto synchro" options).
The synchronization and reception are automatic. Of course, you are going to receive all SSTV pictures, not only the ones with the QR Code.

Click on the "Pos" button to see on a map, the positions from where the SSTV pictures are transmitted. Note that the received QR Code is stored and is accessible by clicking on the "QSO" button

Note that Hams receiving the QR Code with other programs (Mixw for example), will decode this one using a QR Code application installed on a PC, a tablet, or a mobile phone.

Example

Suppose that another Ham receives your SSTV picture. In the snapshow below you will find, to the left, the transmitted picture and, to the right, the same picture received, with decoded text at the bottom and the Ham position on the map.

HF Pager for Windows versions history

V3.10
An error in the symbol synchronization algorithm was fixed.
Used baud rate is saved in the text header of sent or received message.
The acknowledge packet (ACK) includes the Error Rate of
the received message, which is then stored in the sent message text header.
V3.02
The bug was fixed - a CW-ID was transmitted not only after a beacon,
but also after a general message.
V3.01
You can now manually set the coordinates used in the beacon when there
is no GPS receiver (or when there is no data from it).

You can now include a CW-ID (up to 16 symbols) in the beacon.

The set of possible beacon transmission periods has been changed.

The waterfall displays the receiving frequencies corresponding to the selected baud
rate, as well as the nominal receiving frequencies for the 1.46 bauds speed.

The weather forecasts received from the HFPgate (V1.60 NG and newer or HFP Weather)
by the "=x..." command are converted to the human-readable form and saved into
the special folder. A separate folder is created for all messages received on
the same day (local or UTC time, dependings on the settings). Therefore, when the
weather request is making around midnight the sequence of received forecasts can be
splitted into two folders.

Minor fixes have been made.
2.92
The click on "=xGPS" or "#(GPS)" button inserts the current
GPS-coordinates into the beginning of the message (in one of the two formats).

A point with the received coordinates can be displayed on the
selected map by the popup menu.
2.91
The minimum preamble length has been increased to three seconds.

The retransmission logic was changed:
If a NAK (error receipt) is received, then a
message is retrassmitted even if
"Resent till not CFM" checkbox is not set.

PTT control options "OmniRig / CAT" and "OmniRig / Com-port pins" were added.

At 23.44 and 46.88 baud rates ACK or NAK are repeated twice
(with single preamble).
[...]

HFpager for Android Versions History

V3.33
An error in the symbol synchronization algorithm was fixed.
Used baud rate is saved in the text header of reseived message
or in the end of sent message text.
The acknowledge packet (ACK) includes the Error Rate of
the received message, which is then stored in the end of sent message text.
V3.31
The program works even if the standard "Documents" folder has been moved
to the external SD-card.
V3.30
The weather forecasts received from the HFPgate (V1.60 NG and newer)
by the "=x..." command are converted to the human-readable form and saved into
the special folder. A separate folder is created for all messages received on
the same day (local time). Therefore, when the weather request is making around
midnight the sequence of received forecasts can be splitted into two folders.
V3.27
The click on "=xGPS" or "#(GPS)" button inserts the current
GPS-coordinates into the beginning of the message (in one of the two formats).
A point with the received coordinates can be displayed on the
selected map or transferred to another application as geo-intent by the popup menu.

During creating a new message by the "Resend message" menu item the
recipient ID of the original message is placed into the "To:" field.

During creating a new message by the "Reply" menu item the
sender ID of the original message is placed into the "To:" field.
The text of the new message remains blank in this case.
V3.26
The explanatory message is shown before requesting access to device location.
V3.25
If the message forwarded from the air to SMS contains "= x"-coordinates,
a link to Google Maps is added to outgoing SMS (in the NG-version).
