Re: [Hellschreiber] Slowfeld.etc.

Paulus <paulstra@...>
 

Hello Andrew,

The Slowfeldhell mode (G3PPT) is an extremely sensitive mode and therefore
very slow (max speed 2 char/minute !). Bandwidth is 2,6 Hz, but by using
about 20 screens of 20 fft-bins, you can drift max 520 hz.
We have used this mode to see if my signal on my Indoor Magnetic Loop (30
watts) could be heard by ZL1BPU and it did !
Unfortunetly due to an bit of too much noise in thouse here, I could not
detect ZL1BPU.
The frequency used then was 10.135.100.
Others have tested this mode with success too, but keep in mind that only
transmitting your callsign will take about 3 minutes hi (at max speed).
Perhaps we will do some testing again in the summertime and will announce it
on the Hellschreiber-reflector.

Another very sensitive mode still to be tested is "Throb" also from Lionel
G3PPT and looking forward for stations to set up regular tests. HF/VHF.
(once an week).

About PC-Ale: well let us see which stations are regular QRV with that mode,
I heard about some nets on 10 mtr in the UK.....

Cheerio now

New Love Bug virus 'most damaging yet'

Andrew J. O'Brien <obrienaj@...>
 

New Love Bug virus 'most damaging yet'

A variant of the "Love Bug" computer virus has started spreading, which
virus experts warn is much more destructive than the original.

Computers at several large companies have been infected, says Dave Perry,
spokesman at anti-virus software company Trend Micro Inc, in Cupertino,
California.

Like the "Love Bug" scourge that spread to millions of computers two weeks
ago, the new virus arrives in an attachment to an e-mail.

However, it isn't given away by an "ILOVEYOU" subject line. Instead, the
subject line changes to a random word or phrase every time a computer is
infected.

"Each time the virus spreads, it mutates itself to evade detection,"
Symantec Corp, another anti-virus software maker, says in a statement from
its Cupertino offices.

The subject line of an infected e-mail starts with "FW: " and includes the
name of a randomly chosen attachment from a previous e-mail on an infected
computer. The e-mail will have an attachment with the same name, but ending
in ".Vbs."

Clicking on the attachment will activate the virus. Like "Love Bug," it will
send itself to everybody in the user's address book. It will then destroy
most of the files on the hard drive, rendering the computer useless until
the operating system is reinstalled.

As with the "Love Bug," only recipients running Microsoft's Outlook e-mail
program for Windows are vulnerable and there's no danger if the attachment
is not opened, virus experts say.

The larger size of this virus's attachments are more likely to crash e-mail
servers, experts say. The "Love Bug" had a small attachment, but crashed
e-mail servers all over the world when it sent millions of copies of itself
through the systems at once.

Perry says he hopes that increased awareness among e-mail users will hold
back the spread of the new virus.


DigiPan and seek

Andrew J. O'Brien <obrienaj@...>
 

I really like the SEEK feature in DigiPan and think it may be of great
assistance to blind/visually impaired hams who use a reader to announce
received text.

In testing it out though, I notice that it will stop on none-PSK31 signals
that it sees (PACTOR for one). Perhaps some day it will know how to
recognize the "correct" mode and skip over unwanted modes.

Throb QSO on 10 Mhz today

Paulus <paulstra@...>
 

Hello all,

Today Bernard G3SMW and me made our first THROB Qso on 10 Mhz.
It is an quite sensitive mode, not fast but fast enough to do qso-ing.
That time Psk31 was not possible anymore, FM245 Feldhell gave about 40 %
text and Throb was doing fine.
Tuning has to very precise during the qso, and fase correction ( so I see
it) has to been watched and adjusted carefully. So it is not an armchair
mode hi, I like that.

I hope that Lionel G3PPT , who has written this porgram (also SlowFeldhell,
an very very sensitive mode) has soon some more details how this mode works.
I wil ask him, to put this program on his Website.

That's all for now,

Re: Summary (Full sound card support pactor)

Daryl \(WB4YEX\) <jdc@...>
 

More than cost for additional equipment, having all the modes supported via sound card eliminates lugging around tons of equipment when operating remote. I enjoy mountain topping with the motorhome. I use PSK31 and RTTY with the soundcard. I leave the HAl at home.  :-)
Faster to setup remotely. I like the idea of sending email via pactor. In W.Va. just across the mountain from here communications gets wiped out by floods and blizzards for days on a regular basis. Hams set up to relay out of the mountains. Voice has the old problem of once the tale goes through 5 or 6 poeple it is usually ridled with errors due to paraphrasing. A printed out original remains accurate. The NTS plan sucks IMHO. It is too riddled with formalities and has to go through too many relays. Frankly I have tried sending messages via NTS over the 20+ years I have been a ham. They either get there 3 weeks later or in many cases not at all. Email via pactor can be sent directly to the one for whom it is intended. I agree Dale. It is an excellent idea for emergencies. It is far more reliable.

Cost is a very important consideration in any kind of remote communications
after all, if cost was no problem why not just lease a transponder on a
satellite and send all the info you want that way.

Re: DigiPan and seek

Larry Van Horn (Monitoring Times) <larry@...>
 

As a huge fan of Digipan I firmly agree about the new seek feature in V1.1.
As far as signal recognition, that I am sure would require much much more
programming and probably increase the size as well. It isn't high on my list
of updates. What is on my list to the authors is a way to clear the log
screen easily (unless I missed something somewhere), and a way to edit the
logs. Also does anyone know how to set up the time zone in this program. I
leave my system time on my computer at UTC and the Digipan clock/log is four
hours ahead of that. I have not been able to figure out how to change time
zones in Digipan. Help, help please!!

As for PSK31, wow what a mode. This weekend I got my RigBlaster noise
problems cured and put my system on the air. Wow! It was a blast and I
really enjoy kb to kb contacts again like we use to do in the old days of
packet (before switches, BBSs, etc).

Now all I need is to get my new Gap Titan DX vertical up and I will have my
shack pretty much rounded out.

Hello,
since May 20. MT63 (any version) don't work!
A Pop UP window appears with the request to procure a newer version of the
program. After closing this window, a further error message appears and the
program falls inevitably.
At present only one possibility to run the program consists of resetting the
date of the computer before the program start.

Subject: [digitalradio] PSK20

I just build a PSK20 and all works well except that if I input enough
audio to get 1.5 watts average output (3 watts peak) then I have
distortion (flat topping) of the PSK idle signal. I have to drop the
drive down to 0.75 watts average (1.5 watts peak) to get a clean
signal. The flat topping occurs first at the driver collector Q10.
Anyone getting more clean power output? Got any voltage readings
around Q10 and Q11 for a good PSK20?

Thanks

New Way of tuning PSK ?

Andrew J. O'Brien <obrienaj@...>
 

I was intrigued by the Spectrogram program by Colin MM5AGM. In this program
, with the correct rig control protocols, one can take a mouse and click on
the spectrum on the screen AND the rig then QSY's to the actual frequency
clicked on.It is NOT a PSK program.

That got me thinking about the issue currently being discussed by many hams
that are enjoying wide spectral displays in PSK software (DigiPan, Zakanaka,
Win PSK),... The limits of a rig's passband become a factor and essentially
limit the range where what one can satisfactorily "click", work PSK and
get good power output.

Maybe this is too simplistic an idea, but if we took Colin's concepts and
applied it to PSK software we could click on a PSK signal and have the rig
QSY to the exact frequency. Of course it would not help older rigs with
less "fine" tuning.

Dumb idea ?

Andy KB2EOQ


Re: New Way of tuning PSK ?

Colin Campbell <mm5agm@...>
 

HI everyone,
The problem I see here is that at present in the PSK programs you are seeing the audio spectrum and that's going to be a max of about kHz ( dependent on your rigs pass band). When you click on it, the software "adjusts" the received and transmitted audio tones to decode and send out the correct freq of audio on the frequency you are currently tuned to. As an example ( and don't flame me for getting the figures wrong if the concept is correct because I'm easily offended :) Say you have your rig on 14.070 and your PSK program showing kHz of audio, when you click at say 500Hz ( not a good thing due to harmonics getting through), your rig will stay at 14.070 but the audio tones you will send will be, for the sake of argument at 500Hz, giving a transmitted freq of 14.070 + 500hz. The received tones are probably similarly adjusted. If you click at 1500Hz then you transmit at 14.070 but the audio will be at 1500Hz giving a transmitted freq of 14.070 + 1500Hz. Now my program does something completely different. It changes the frequency your rig is actually at so your PSK program won't decode anymore because you will have effectively moved the tuning knob. The other problem I see is that my program is showing you the signal strength at a particular frequency. You don't know it's PSK - it could be the local taxi car outside your door :(
