I am trying to receive PSK31 signals on my FT 2400 by routing the line out on the radio to the line in on my sound card. I can’t seem to find any signals though. Am I on the wrong frequency or is this hookup inadequate? Also does PSK31 sound different than other digital modes through the speaker?

Thank you.

On what frequencies are you listening?

PSK31 has a unique sound that is described as a warble.  Go to: http://home.teleport.com/~nb6z/frame.htm for explanations and a sound clip of PSK31 and other digital modes.

hi,

What software are you using to process the signal from the sound card ?

Digipan is one program that works well for me and there are others too.  http://www.digipan.net/

To send and receive with psk31 you will need software
along with the pc and soundcard.

Tune to 14.070 usb and there will be some psk31 activity most of the time.

The FT 2400 is a FM, 2 meter radio.  Most PSK is on SSB, upper side band and on the 80 through 10 meter bands.  There is some 2 meter PSK activity in the central area of Illinois in the USA, and they also use USB. Have not heard of any one using 2 meter FM for PSK.

I thought I would give it a try seeing as I have the wire lying arround. Can you tell me what digital modes are most common on 2m? I'll try them.

Thanks
