QRQ CW test - send CW at 96 Khz on the LF band at 96 wpm and send it to another OP over IP

brief experiment to see if by using the maximum sample rate of a sound card, 192Khz, would allow sending QRQ CW at 96 Khz(the highest frequency possible at 192Khz sample rate) at 96 wpm

Gstreamer scripts are used by the TRANSMITTER and RECEIVER

QRQ CW OPs - minimize CW ELEMENT spectrum splatter when transmitting QRQ CW on your RIG - with this:

1. send AFCW MODE

2. use this GSTREAMER BANDPASS FILTER between your CW KEYER's audio output and the RIG's LINE INPUT

FREE webRTC APP - for morse code qso with up to 4 cw ops - just using your browser

Invite a friend(s) to join you at this link and have a morse code qso with them

All you have to do is produce a nice sidetone, and run an audio cable from it to the MIC INPUT or LINE INPUT of your soundcard.  

When you click on this link it will ask your permission to use your MIC, say YES and start sending morse

iCW - 2012 - How to send morse code over the internet on WINDOWS 7 : THE BASIC SETUP

LIVE RECORDING of a QRQ CW QSO - MORSE CODE OVER THE INTERNET - from 2009

Using Mumble( open source skype like voip program )and FLdigi to communicate morse code over the internet. LIVE RECORDING from 2009. [ Missouri to Michigan internet path ]

SETUP: using a virtual audio cable, we connect the output of FLDIGI to the input of MUMBLE. We both connect to a MUMBLE SERVER and instead of using MICROPHONES, we send morse code audio tones at high quality, high fidelity, and low latency, to each other. The audio is FULL DUPLEX and allows for good QSK response during the conversation for breaking in.
