brief test creating 2 Gstreamer AUDIO PIPELINE LOOPBACKS from a Linux Laptop TO a RASPBERRY PI 2b - over the LAN - going through routers and switches...(both using Jack Audio Connection Kit)
one PIPELINE using rtpL16***
and the other PIPELINE using rtpL24***
to compare Gstreamer's rtpL16pay and rtpL24pay RTP AUDIO PAYLOADER…Continue

After bringing together EhoCW, VoiceMeeter Banana and Mumble, I built an interface for my paddles using the following:
1 - Sewell USB-Serial Adapter (I had this on hand, a similar one is available on Amazon)
1 - 3.5mm Stereo Female Terminal Block panel mount connector…Continue

this is an advanced setup for remote control of an ELECRAFT K3S over ip on the LOCAL AREA NETWORK - a LINUX LAPTOP to the Rig's Raspberry PI's computer
AUDIO OVER IP: over the local LAN with routers and switches :
zita-njbridge is used to provide audio for RECEIVE AND TRANSMIT…

short test by transmitting CW at 1 watt on 10 meters - going to a websdr rcvr to listen and record the sound - look for how well using AFCW MODE on an ELECRAFT K3S performs for its spectral purity and waveform preservation of a well constructed raised cosine edged CW NOTE made by the ZamGate CW RE-Keyer - transmitted by an Elecraft K3S using a…Continue

Please feel free to start any QRQcw topics or leave comments for the discussions already posted. You may also load pictures or videos relating to qrq cw operations. Thank you for your contributions.
Virtual Serial Port Kit -
create virtual serial ports connected via a virtual null-modem cable.
Serial Port Splitter -
share dataflow of one serial port among several applications.
Network Serial Port Kit -
access remote serial devices over local network or the Internet.
USB over Network -
share and access USB devices over local network or the Internet.
NOTE: A special provision has been made available by FABULTECH to official ham radio operators. See this article for more details about this incredible offer:
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
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.
an A / B test between Linear and Exponential QRQ CW audio tone waveformsWhich waveform do you think sounds best ?SETUP for this test: FLdigi is sending a text file at 71 wpm from TOM's famous article…Continue

This project began life a bit before Hjalmar posted his Arduino decoder project. I had barely begun to migrate my keyer software to the ChipKit PIC32 boards (Max32 and Uno32) at that time. I…Continue
