CW Decoding software for demonstration station?

Post by Joel Stanle » Tue, 06 Jan 1998 04:00:00

Our club will be putting up a demonstration HF/VHF station in a mall
in a few months.  I want to be able to connect a speaker output from
the radio to a computer, so that people will be able to read the code
as it is sent and received.

Right now, I have a copy of Super Morse, which has a receive mode,
but I'm not able to get it to read code from on the air.

I've always thought that when the public hears code, they think "Gee,
wow!  Morse code!  Tough!" and wander away.  If we show them what's
going on, they might stick around a while and ask questions...exactly
what we want, people curious about amateur radio.

Thanks and 73 from KC8DQH.

I've had very good results with Ham-Comm, and the interface (described
in the help file) is very easy to construct.  Why don't you try that?

The closest thing to what you want may be WB8DQT's "Quick & Easy CW with
your PC", it's in the arrl handbook (at least the 97 edition). The basic
source code that goes along with his hardware is available on the arrl
web pages. I ordered the circuit board from Far Circuits and am in the
process of building it with a few modifications.

Anybody in your club/circle have an all-mode tnc and pc that
they use for packet/digital?

I use a kam for packet/cw/rtty. Software can be any terminal program,
even yapp. Works fine even for keyboard cw.
