I would like to thank you, Dave and all the other FLdigi developers, for developing and progressing FLdigi.
Although my computer skills are not up to the task of doing something like that, I can appreciate art in programming when I see it.
73 and many thanks for this great software.
I think we really ought to thank Dave & the team he has assembled around FLdigi. I have learned a lot just studying the FLdigi software - it has some really cool collection of code. I have also found the team very responsive and helping newbies like myself getting new ideas implemented.
Decoding Morse code is such a perfect application area - there are enough challenges even for human operators to copy CW perfectly, not to mention teaching computers how to do it. Add some noise, irregular fists, pile-up conditions, random signal fading and other daily events on the ham RF bands - creating smart software that is able to deal with all this and software that learns from experience is quite a challenge. We have now personal computers powerful enough to run complex algorithms in milliseconds that took hours when these neural network algorithms were first discovered 20 - 30+ years ago.
I wonder if there is anybody else interested in Self Organizing Maps and other artificial neural networks algorithms?
