I'll provide some feddback once you get a windows ver up.

I have some good news.  Thanks to Dave W1HKJ  there is now a Windows alpha version available.

I have a short description of the new functionality and download link available here:

Once again,  this is an alpha release  provided in order to get some feedback and improvement ideas  from FLDIGI users.  You can provide feedback by submitting comments below (in the blog)  or sending me email to  ag1le at innomore dot com.   It would be very helpful  if you could provide audio samples (WAV files can be recorded   using File / Audio / RX Capture feature of FLDIGI),  screenshot of what CW parameter settings you are using  and general description of the problem or issue you discovered.

That is an excellent result Mauri!

A conventional detection with a touch tone decoder phase locked loop can't detect file 3 flawless. File 4 will do.

So your decoding method is an order better then the conventional one.  That is really a bench mark. Congrats with these results.

Thanks Wim

You should really be providing compliments to Dave W1HKJ - he is the man behind the signal processing chain in FLDIGI.  The Bayesian decoder needs still a lot of work and focus. The main improvement this decoder is bringing along is ability to deal with variability in speed, rhytm and signal strength (QSB).  For hand keyed signals (at least in theory) it should be somewhat better. However, without solid front end signal processing  and filtering  the decoder doesn't do much.

I'm running a Hardrock-50.  2.5 watts in, 50-65 out.  Worked great with my IC-703...haven't tried it yet with the KX3,  but the idea is to let the amp do the heavy lifting running psk31 while the kx3 puts out a watt or two.

Just as a matter of curiosity, I was in the ASA from 63 to 67 and stationed at the 14th ASAFS Hakata Japan. I was an 05D, but remember mils very well.

Okay just venting, but it would have been smart for the ARRL to set up their own website for this unending contest.
Clogging up a "DX" net with all stateside contacts seems somewhat pointless so to speak.
And of course, running split for stateside to stateside contacts is the definition of the proverbial LID.


How about us DX that are taking part in this ... NOT contest ... its a set of awards

For us W1AW is DX ... and for the large numbers of callers then split is the way to go

I understand for those not interested in the event then it might seem an un-ending event .. actually its a year long ...!

So for us at the bottom of the world or outside NA then it is DX !

And its as much a DX event .. many of us are ARRL members too ... not just NA!

For the rigs meter you may even omit the Swan.

$200 for first time ... $400 for second time ... Third strike and your license is revoked!
This would work a lot better than fining one or two token examples some super high amount every five years.

I am not sure revoking their license would really matter much.  They would probably just go on to operate unlicensed.

I would like to see a law passed that outlawed all HOAs and CCRs.  Will never happen, though.

The solution to this is simple:

Don't buy property in a restricted area.

I didn't.

Oops -- sorry!  The correct link:

It's an active group.  There's no problem with the Dell and fldigi, but there are some menu settings (that aren't obvious) in the IC-7200 that have to be set correctly to use the rig's USB-driven soundcard.

I stacking antennas you r gain comes from compressing the antenna patter and as a rule of thumb your gain goes up 3 dB with doubling the array.

Here in lies the problem:

Are you compressing the antenna pattern in the desired angle to effectively improve your signal? Many DX signals can come in at angles above 15 degree above the horizon.

Do you have a receiver noise floor problem? Getting the antenna as high as possible removes the antenna from local noise being generated locally.

You are better to use a single multi element antenna (4-8 elements) and mitigate the antenna losses with good coax. If you need  more signal output, use an amplifier.

I use a 4 element antenna on 10 meters at 105 feet and have never had a problem hearing even a week DX signal. The amplifier takes care of the other amateur’s high noise floor.
