Can anyone recommend some software (pay or shareware) that decodes the various digital signals in the HF spectrum?  I don’t know if I’m using the right terminology, but I’m talking about the kind of software that allows you to hook up the analog audio output of your rig to your PC, and the PC will decode and display the CW, text, or FAX image, etc. I had an old Windows 3.X based program about 7 years back and I could never get it to work.

Thanks in advance.

You are asking about soundcard digital modes.  There are many exciting modes including psk31, Hellschreiber, mfsk16, Throb, etc.  Give this link a try: http://home.wanadoo.nl/nl9222/software.htm

HamScope (http://users.mesatop.com/~ghansen/) is freeware and will help you with CW, RTTY, MFSK 16 and PSK 31.

Also try http://www.mscan.com/.  They have software for FAX and RTTY, including one that will do both in an integrated suit, wgich is excellent for weather fax and RTTY reports.  You have to pay for this one, although they have demo stuff.  They also have SSTV software.

Makoto Mori (http://www.geocities.com/mmhamsoft/) has some good stuff, too.  His software is for RTTY, and also has another program for SSTV which is excellent.  This is freeware.

http://www.hffax.de/WX_Satellite/WXSat/wxsat.html - This has excellent software for Weather Pictures reception of different satellites (NOAA, OKEAN, etc.) which you can receive on 137.4 and 137.5 MHz.  WXSAT can also be used for FAX reception in HF.  Read the instructions carefully to take advantage of all the features.  Latest version is 2.59, I think.  This is freeware.

http://www.geocities.com/CapeCanaveral/Cockpit/9870/acars.html has software for the automated digital communications in airplanes.  It also has a feature where the position of the plane is plotted on a map.  Instructions on how to build maps is included in the site.  Latest version is 0.7 an it is freeware.

CWGet and TrueTTY are also good software packages.  Do a search and it will get you to the site.  I personally use CWGet when I am rusty on recption and does a fairly good job.  This is shareware, though, so support will cost some money.

I hope this helps.

I use MixW 2.0 to decode most of my HF digital modes.  It will at least decode most of the popular HF digital modes, and transmits on most of the non-handshaking modes.  

It will handle CW, RTTY, FSK31, Feld-Hell, MFSK16, QPSK31, BPSK31, THROB, Packet (HF and VHF), MT63, SSTV, and FEC AMTOR.  The program will also decode (RX only) Fax, and PacTor-I and provide audio DSP for voice modes.

You can download a demo, but it requires a $50 registration for extended use.  I hope this helps.
