Has anyone tried any of the software that is supposed to read CW? Does it work?

It works under certain conditions as follows:

1.  A strong incoming signal
2.  Incoming signal free from interference
3.  Incoming code must be either computer generated or from someone with a fist almost as good as that.

When these three criteria are met, they work very well.  When any one of these criteria is not met, the results are poor to unuseable.

Thanks,

I have "HamScope" installed on my computer. It seems to work well on PSK and TTY.

But I have had no luck making it work on CW.If I want to talk computer to computer I would us PSK or TTY.

Since CW was included I just wanted to see if it would work.

I've made decoders work but only under the conditions I listed.  Of course the human brain, once properly trained, can decode things that are a LONG way from ideal.

I use CWGet. It works great for me even with a low signal. It may miss a letter or two, but you can get enough out of it to copy the QSO.
