Using an audio derived cw keying circuit to key CW on the K3S : http://qrqcwnet.ning.com/forum/topics/what-circuit-for-computer
- with the circuit attached to the K3S cw keying jack...and being key'ed remotely via a voice chat program called MUMBLE:…

using MUMBLE and MORSE CODE audio tones, and varying the Mumble output volume from 15 percent to 200 percent, this video demo's VLevel keeping the volume output of Mumble to be extremely stable at a near zero DB final audio output to the sound card, no matter the level of volume at VLeveL's input...VLevel is acting as an AUTOMATIC GAIN CONTROL,…Continue

A few weeks ago, I found some relatively cheap Chinese K3(S) IF filters on eBay. Since I recently purchased a K3 (with the new synthesizer), I was wondering if the offered 250 Hz and 500 Hz filters are any good. I ordered two of each variant and a 200 Hz filter from Elecraft, in order to have some comparison models. I also measured the filters that were already present in my rig and concluded which filter combination and settings are best in my…Continue

SETUP: an UltraPico Keyer, keys a 555 TIMER CHIP..from the audio output of the 555, an audio cable is attached and goes to the input of a laptop's mic jack input...the 555 time chip sidetone is very rough sounding with lots of high pitched harmonics and key clicks...INSTEAD of trying to filter the 555's raspy tone, this video demo's using TRIGGER…Continue

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.
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

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
