NOTE: if you have a QRQcw NET or know of one, please tell us about it, and we will post it here
Brief demo of keying QRQ CW on the ELECRAFT K3S using A1 mode and A2 mode(AFCW) at 75 wpm to show the CW bandwidth spectrum and CW waveshape differences
A1 MODE = default way to key CW on the K3S , the K3S uses the typical RAISED COSINE at 8 ms rise/fall time and cannot be changed
A2 MODE is done by using the AD5DZ software CW…Continue

one of the challenges when using a speaker for "copy by ear" listening to QRQ CW audio tones, is that the pure sine cw audio tones bounce off the walls, floor and ceiling of the room you are in and can cause all kinds of weird effects...this experimental combo of using a surplus, 5 buck, 4 ohm, flat panel speaker and the CW AUDIO CANNON…Continue
this is a follow up video to the first two videos about using a PETERSON CHROMATIC TUNER 320 as a COMPUTER based CPO CODE PRACTICE OSCILLATOR that you can key, in with STRAIGHT KEY, IAMBIC PADDLES and a CW KEYBOARD
this video demos using an MFJ 451 CW KEYBOARD for QRQ CW sending using the same setup - a PETERSON CHROMATIC TUNER 320 and a…Continue

this video demo's using an old 1 CPU laptop as an AFCW mode, QRQ CW KEYBOARD KEYER for an ELECRAFT K3S by using the K3S USB SOUND CARD and AFCW MODE, for keying QRQ CW with the AD5DZ software CW KEYBOARD into the K3S USB SOUND CARD's LINE INPUT...the K3S VOICE VOX CIRCUIT menu setting is "ON"
the old laptop is using the latest release of…Continue

LIVE DEMO of remote rig operations for CW using a software CW KEYBOARD, PADDLES and a STRAIGHT KEY at the remote site, as well as VOICE from the REMOTE LOCATION....
The ELECRAFT K3S has its own USB SOUND CARD, it will be used for AUDIO OVER IP and SERIAL COMMANDS over IP
to send and receive audio between the RIG and the REMOTE…

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.
In order to properly exercise, the standard keyboard should be altered.I am using a belgian AZERTY keyboard with the QRQ Application. (OS is Ubuntu 18.04.1)In order to type numbers I need to access…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
