/main/aldo/aldo

Morse code training program

Aldo is a morse code learning tool which provides four type of training methods: blocks, koch, file, callsign. Blocks: Identify blocks of random characters played in morse code. Koch: Two morse characters will be played at full speed (20wpm) until you'll be able to identify at least 90 percent of them. After that, one more character will be added, and so on. File: Identify played characters generated from a file. Callsign: Identify random callsigns played in morse code.


Routing daemon for AMPRnet gateway announcements

/main/aprx/aprx

APRS Digipeater and iGate

Aprx is an APRS specific Digipeater and iGate. It supports multiple KISS-TNCs on serial ports and listening to any kernel AX.25 network interfaces. . Additional features include a built-in "erlang-monitor" to analyze activity level of radio channels. . This software requires a valid (and unique) ham radio callsign to operate fully and is therefore useful mainly for licensed radio amateurs.

practice test for the Canadian Amateur Radio exam

Canadian Ham Exam uses the official question bank from Industry Canada and allows aspiring hams to practice the section of their choice as they are learning the material for the exam. . It requires a copy of the question bank, which can be downloaded free of charge from the Industry Canada website: . http://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/025.nsf/eng/h_00004.html . Both the basic and the advanced exams are supported, in English and French.

/main/chirp/chirp

CHIRP is a free, open-source tool for programming your amateur radio. It supports a large number of manufacturers and models, as well as provides a way to interface with multiple data sources and formats. . CHIRP can handle data in the following formats: - Comma Separated Values (.csv) - Comma Separated Values generated by RT Systems (.csv) - EVE for Yaesu VX-5 (.eve) - Kenwood HMK format (.hmk) - Kenwood commercial ITM format (.itm) - Icom Data Files (.icf) - ARRL TravelPlus (.tpe) - VX5 Commander Files (.vx5) - VX7 Commander Files (.vx7) . Most popular modern amateur radios are supported by CHIRP via their interface cables.


Convers client with curses color support

Colrconv is a modified version of VA3DP's ttylink client. In addition to the basic split screen session it gives you color and sound support plus some line editing capabilities, a scroll buffer and a status line. Also the default port is changed to 3600 (convers).


Gui based tool to compare two text streams

Comptext is used to compare two text streams. It's comparison function uses a linear-programming technique. It computes total number of errors, the character error rate (CER) and the bit error rate (BER).


GUI based tool to compare two RTTY streams

Comptty is used to compare two RTTY streams. It's comparison function uses a linear-programming technique. It computes total number of errors, the character error rate (CER) and the bit error rate (BER). Special attention is given to SHIFT and UNSHIFT to account for an error occurring in that character.


Advanced logging program for hamradio operators (data files)

CQRLOG is an advanced ham radio logger based on MySQL embedded database. Provides radio control based on hamlib libraries (currently support of 140+ radio types and models), DX cluster connection, HamQTH/QRZ callbook (XML access), a grayliner, internal QSL manager database support and a most accurate country resolution algorithm based on country tables developed by OK1RR. CQRLOG is intended for daily general logging of HF, CW & SSB contacts and strongly focused on easy operation and maintenance. . This package contains the architecture-independent data files.

Software Defined Radio receiver

CubicSDR is a cross-platform Software-Defined Radio application which allows you to navigate the radio spectrum and demodulate any signals you might discover. It currently includes several common analog demodulation schemes such as AM and FM and will support digital modes in the future. . CubicSDR uses SoapySDR to access SDR hardware and thereby supports all hardware for which a SoapySDR module exists.


simple demodulation and spectrum display program

The CuteSDR application's primary purpose is for spawning custom applications or for educational use. It is NOT a full featured program as it is purposely kept simple in order for developers to more easily spin off their own applications. A further goal was to use only the stock functionality of Qt ie no libraries or special drivers. This limits CuteSDR to using only a network connection. The main gui and framework is written by Moe Wheatly, AE4JY. . CuteSDR itself has only a network interface and will directly support the RFSPACE NetSDR and SDR-IP radios. The siqs_ftdi and SDRxxServer applications (packaged separately) provide network interfaces to RFSPACE USB devices.


morse daemon for the parallel or serial port

Cwdaemon is a small daemon which uses the pc parallel or serial port and a simple transistor switch to output morse code to a transmitter from a text message sent to it via the udp internet protocol.

/main/cwirc/cwirc

X-Chat morse plugin

CWirc is a plugin for the X-Chat IRC client to transmit raw morse code over the internet using IRC servers as reflectors. The transmitted morse code can be received in near real-time by other X-Chat clients with the CWirc plugin. CWirc tries to emulate a standard amateur radio rig: it sends and receives morse over virtual channels, and it can listen to multiple senders transmitting on the same channel. Morse code is keyed locally using a straight or iambic key connected to a serial port, or using the mouse buttons, and the sound is played through the soundcard, or through an external sounder. . Note that CWirc doesn't do any morse decoding: it simply transmits and receives morse code timing events. A standard IRC user on the same IRC channel you're transmitting morse on will only see coded lines when morse code is transmitted. Only other CWirc users can receive what you send.

/main/d-rats/d-rats

Communications tool for D-STAR amateur radio

D-RATS is a communications tool for D-STAR amateur radio low-speed data (DV mode). It provides: Multi-user chat capabilities; File transfers Structured data transport (forms); and Position tracking and mapping.

Soundcard TNC for APRS

Dire Wolf is a software "soundcard" modem/TNC and APRS encoder/decoder. It can be used stand-alone to receive APRS messages, as a digipeater, APRStt gateway, or Internet Gateway (IGate). It can also be used as a virtual TNC for other applications such as APRSIS32, UI-View32, Xastir, APRS-TW, YAAC, UISS, Linux AX25, SARTrack, and many others.
