new SW Radiogram program

 

Hello to all the digital folks out there.
 
A new program for the Shortwave Radiogram broadcasts has now been posted on the SW Radiogram website. This time, certain broadcasts from WRMI will use HamDRM.
Please see the website (https://swradiogram.net/) for the schedule and information on the recommended software
 
If you're new to decoding digital, this is a pretty nice way to get your feet wet. You can use your desktop or laptop, or you can use an Android device such as a smartphone or tablet. You can find links to the SW Radiogram website, software for decoding, and wiki articles with extensive details and help at: http://www.udxf.nl/events.html.  
 
If you'd like to see a list of web receivers (which are often reported as being used), receiver, transceiver and SDR applications and more, take a look at the SW Radiogram gateway at https://wiki.radioreference.com/index.php/Shortwave_Radiogram_Gateway
 
Help is also available on Facebook and Twitter. The SW Radiogram website has the links. 
 
Radio Northern Europe International has announced its new schedule for program 16.

New release of MULTIPSK (4.45.2) #Multipsk

Patrick Lindecker
 

New release of MULTIPSK (4.45.2)

 

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 release of MultiPSK (4.45.2) is 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:

e39e00b33097e5b45d60d13970b0bd97

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

 

The different improvements of MULTIPSK 4.45.2 are the following:

 

·                     Under the command "Tune+AF",  the Tune panel gives the possibility to make work an AF generator with an adjustable noise level. With the Multipsk tool "Spectrum analyser", this generator can be used to test an AF filter, for example:
AF generator ---> AF filter to test ---> Spectrum analyser.
This function is only available for licencied copies.

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

·                     Update of the Shipdata.txt file (for the GMDSS and AIS modes). Thanks to Andy DL1DXX.

·                     Update of the VDL2_Ground_Stations.txt (for the VDL2 mode). Thanks to Sergio.

 

Note about translation of Multipsk.exe and Clock .exe:  the 4.45.1 version of Multipsk has been translated to Spanish by Joachin (EB4Z), from French.

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

New VARA HF v4.4.3 released: #VARA

QSP from  VARA site, news of  new  features and  functions .
Some  insight  to the  USAF  adoption ,  round  compression rates 
and BBS  connect  times ,

to VARA HF Modem
good afternoon,
 
New VARA HF v4.4.3 released:
 
The previous release versions of VARA uses a 16-bit hash to resolve the callsign and this has a small but finite chance of getting the call wrong (One in 6553 error rate). John Wiseman detected and reported a case he observed this happening. 
Now this is changed to a 32-bit representation which will essentially eliminate the chance of this happening. 
 
VARA Compression added, which reduces  connect overhead's for weak signal conditions.  Averaged simulation runs showed improvements of a factor of 2 in the Speed Level 1. The improvement becomes more modest as the SNR is improved until Speed Level 6, where compression is not necessary. Messages which already have Winlink applied B2F compression are not compressed.
 
Compression also accelerates dramatically the BBS throughput (using VARA Terminal v1.1.5). 
Thus, BBS Lists are accelerated by 3.0, Forecast messages by 2.6 and MARS Encrypted Data by 1.5. For more info about how use VARA Terminal for BBS MARS connections, contact with Dave AF2HV (Squadron Commander, 22nd AFMARS Trans-Global Communications Digital Operations Military Auxiliary Radio System, USAF)
 
This great feature is active only for the registered users and was added a few days ago to VARA SAT v4.1.0. and , will  be  embodied  in VARA FM soon.

Re: Spanish Ham chats over Atlantic using home made data mode

Tony 

Not as such,  I'd noticed  , Jose  made passing comment, during the  EA<>USA  qso ,    the  chat module  he was using ,  was  home  made , being  the  sole  designer  of the  whole  VARA  suite of programmes,  the  chat module is  probably 
the  simplest ... 

Though  not  designed as  chat mode , the  system chat module, presents  a  modern  version of the  amtor 
system, though  considerably  faster [un reg is 170 baud max] and  far lower s/n  required 

To  work the  east coast usa , used to  take  ~ 250 watts  on 7  with  my  40 ft vertical  on amtor 
round 25w   would do the  same  with  vara , same conditions ..

I have used an SCS DR-7400 Dragon modem with a TS-2000 and RMSExpress successfully in the past. I have traded my TS-2000 for a TS-590SG and am having trouble getting everything to work together. Is anyone using the same arrangement of software and equipment and, if so, would you be willing to share the various settings and configurations for the software and the radio? Thank you for any help you can provide!

Updated list of RS ID - Fldigi extension #RS ID #rs

Patrick Lindecker
 

Hello to all,

 

Below it will found the updated list of RS ID.

 

As it can be seen, four RS ID appears at the end of the list, with the codes 6, 102, 168 and 174. They all are called “EXTENSION_FLDIGI”. They are introduced for the Fldigi system of extension of the RSID (two sequences RS ID code). They are managed by Dave (W1HKJ), for Fldigi needs.

For example, to define MFSK64, the first extension RS ID has the code 6 and the secondary RS ID code is 620.

 

So, at the moment, this system is the following:

·         4 particular RS ID are used for Fldigi extension RS IDs: 6, 102, 168, 174 ,

·         and the 70 last RS ID (of the 272 RS ID list): 450 457 458 460 462 467 497 513 519 522 526 529 533 539 541 545 551 553 558 564 566 569 570 580 587 595 604 610 620 625 639 649 653 658 662 681 687 691 693 713 1026 1029 1037 1038 1043 1047 1051 1058 1059 1066 1071 1076 1078 1082 1084 1171 1239 1978 2052 2053 2094 2095 2110 2118 2119 2156 2157 2790 2958 3837 are in reserve for secondary RS ID use only.

 

The secondary RS ID is sent 3 RS ID symbols (so about 0.3 seconds) after the extension RS ID.

 

With this system, it is possible to manage 202+4*70=482 RS ID instead of 272, without risk of confusion.

 

For programs supporting RS ID, it is necessary, on detection of an extension RS ID (EXTENSION_FLDIGI code 6 for example):

·         to raise a flag (EXTENSION_FLDIGI_IN_PROGRESS ON for the example),

·         to monitor during 3 seconds (1,7 seconds + margin) the secondary RS ID (let’s say the code 620 for MFSK64 in the example), which is sent about 0.3 seconds after the first one (6),

·         to manage it, whether the corresponding mode is decoded by the program or not.

3 seconds after reception of the extension RS ID number 6 (for example), the flag EXTENSION_FLDIGI_IN_PROGRESS must be back to OFF.

 

The last versions of Fldigi and the last version of Multipsk support this new system (MFSK64 only for Multipsk).

new SW Radiogram program

 

Hello to all the digital folks out there.
 
A new program for the Shortwave Radiogram broadcasts has now been posted on the SW Radiogram website. 
 
If you're new to decoding digital, this is a pretty nice way to get your feet wet. You can use your desktop or laptop, or you can use an Android device such as a smartphone or tablet. You can find links to the SW Radiogram website, software for decoding, and wiki articles with extensive details and help at: http://www.udxf.nl/events.html.  
 
If you'd like to see a list of web receivers (which are often reported as being used), receiver, transceiver and SDR applications and more,  take a look at the SW Radiogram gateway at https://wiki.radioreference.com/index.php/Shortwave_Radiogram_Gateway
 
Help is also available on Facebook and Twitter. The SW Radiogram website has the links. 
 
Radio Northern Europe International has announced its new schedule for program 15.  
See https://rnei.org/2021/03/06/radio-northern-europe-international-show-15-goes-out-this-sunday/ for more information.
You can read about HamDRM (also known as WinDRM) at https://www.sigidwiki.com/wiki/WinDRM
 
Here's hoping for good propagation
