I think that Digipan is a Windows program, but there are digital sound card programs that run under Linux such as gmfsk. At the current time the most advanced program of this type is fldigi from Dave Freese, W1HJK at:

w1hkj.com

Also, Linux is the only OS that currently supports PSKmail and the servers for this mode.

use one of the linux native psk programs like gmfsk, linpsk or fldigi.

I have also run digipan using a windows virtual machine under linux, but thats cheating Smiley

I used to work on PSK31 a lot using Linux in 2001. Even at that time (7 years back) there were plenty of PSK31 programs for Linux ( check the old screenshots http://shipwreck.yi.org/psk31logs/ ). At that time kpsk seemed to be the best. fldigi seems to be very popular now.

I just asked the same question on the 070 PSK club's yahoo group.  :-)  Been inactive a couple of years, switched to linux at home since the last time I was active, and now need new software.  After several positive recommendations, I got "fldigi" from W1HJK's website on my laptop last night, and it's fast and easy to install and configure.  Looks great!  I still don't have an antenna up but fldigi looks like a very fast-and-easy way to go.  It also has a rig-control feature I want to play with some time.  73 & GL!  --ken

fldigi is an excellent multi digital mode for Linux. It even has rig controls as well. I would highly reccomend it.

Fldigi is one of the best of the current multimode digital sound card programs. It is the only one that works cross platform and works just as well on Windows Vista and XP as it does on Linux, FreeBSD, or Mac OSX.

It can not compete with the ultra high end programs currently only available on MS Windows XP/Vista/Windows 7, particularly Ham Radio Deluxe/Digital Master 780, which has full rig control, but it has all of the popular modes as well as interfacing with flarq to provide the NBEMS Narrow Bandwidth Emergency Messaging System) ARQ messaging that will not be available on HRD/DM780.

Similarly, fldigi also works under MS-Windows programs to provide a client for the PSKmail system using the new java program.

I have run Fldigi on Linux a few years ago on one of my cmputers, and now running it on XP and Vista, and find it very competitive, no matter what the platform.

You can expect to be quite pleased with fldigi.

I just use fldigi with Linux, but I've had good luck with it.

I'm new to the digital world, and this conversation reminded me of something I've been wondering about:
I am starting to build one of the PSK-31 transceivers (20m) by small wonders lab.  Although it is supposed to work with Digipan on Windows, could this transceiver also work on Mac with something like Fldigi?

Thanks,

Yes the SWL PSK rigs will work with pretty much any computer platform and Digital mode software.

P.S. For what it is worth I run FLDIGI on Windows, Mac OS X and
Ubuntu Linux and it works flawlessly.

Ann:

Your Small Wonders transceiver should work with any PSK software that uses a soundcard.  I believe it uses a VOX circuit so you're good to go with whatever software you choose.

Thanks for the replies.  I look forward to experimenting with Fidigi, Cocoamodem, and digipan, as well as other software.
