This video is demo’N a setup to create a custom QRQ CW sine wave, raised cosine edged, ‘keyable’ oscillator
There are already 2 excellent programs for LINUX for a software QRQ CW KEYBOARD… FLdigi and TWQRQ...however, neither one of them are ‘keyable’ - this first video in a new video series on “QRQ CW OVER 100 WPM” uses Fldigi as a tool to…Continue
click on the YOUTUBE icon at the bottom of any video in this 6 part series that you are interested in to see its discussion notes and links
One of the advantages of sending CW this way, is that you can send a very customized and optimized cw waveshape that has extremely low distortion and harmonic energy... extremely low key…Continue

test results are shown(no sound on video) for hitting a lever that sends a TONE into the mic input jack of a laptop...a separate USB RECORDING MIC is placed at an equal distance from from both the LEVER and the SPEAKER (ABOUT 6 inches to mic from both the lever and the speaker) the MIC measures the TAP sound when hitting the LEVER and the final…Continue

Robin Schmidt's EngineersFilter is a remarkable software APP audio bandpass filter VST PLUGIN...this video demo shows a test to compare how well just ONE FILTER APP can take out all the harmonics of a harsh square wave CW SIDETONE...AND...output a MORSE CODE AUDIO NOTE waveform that looks the closest to a raised cosine edged CW…Continue
This is a QRQ CW COPY TEST - to see how close I could match the great sound of FLdigi's QRQ CW with a custom cw sine wave oscillator - built up by using AMsynth and the GLAME BANDPASS FILTER...NOTE: since you can not externally KEY FLdigi... i had to search for another way to be able to key CW manually/externally - from PADDLES, KEYBOARD or…Continue

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

I made a screen recording of a qso to demonstrate the serial interface between keyer / decoder of my ChipKit / PIC32 keyer. Both sides of the qso are displayed. The keyer switches the text color to…Continue

Hi all,This is my 1st post here so I hope I'm doing this right...After looking on the internet for this subject with no luck, I crossed an email with an well known american veteran CW operator (his…Continue

A few years ago I built a Sienna for K6KX (Fred), a long story that I will not go into.The past few days Fred has been testing it on our sked. Tonight I did a recording that can be downloaded from…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
