QRQ CW Copy by Ear Practice - 11 CW Signals - speeds from 61 - 81 wpm - use an SDR APP to choose & listen

There are 11 CW signals to choose from,

each one at a different speed from 61 wpm to 81 wpm.

Use your own SDR APP on your own PC to scan each signal and choose the speed you would like to use for COPY BY EAR practice.

Use a Virtual audio cable as the YouTube browser playback device and set your SDR input to use the same…

Receiving a QRQ CW signal on VLF using QUISK SDR and wire antenna attached to sound card input

brief demo showing QUISK SDR and a wire antenna hooked up to the PC's sound card input
- picking up a weak QRQ CW signal on VLF - 18 khz

- by using the AGC on QUISK SDR and sending the QUISK SDR receive audio through the CALF EQ 5 BAND lv2 plugin, the weak signal is brought up significantly to improve copy

QRQ CW audio OVER ip test - 24 bit VS 32 bit - uncompressed audio over Ethernet

brief test of 24 bit VS 32 bit uncompressed audio going from a laptop to a Raspberry pi 2b loopback - and then right back to the laptop over Ethernet cables going through router and switches

32 bit has virtual no variance from the original audio source

24 bit does show a wide berth of harmonics generated at the lowest db…

QRQ CW AUDIO encoding experiment with the GSM CODEC using Gstreamer

Gstreamer encodes and decodes the CW AUDIO using the GSM AUDIO CODEC - plus - one bonus of using Gstreamer for Receiving the TRANSMIT PIPELINE, is that Gstreamer has its own CW AUDIO BANDPASS filter PLUGIN code that you can setup and filter out most of the harsh harmonics, and poor sounding audio of such a low bitrate, low sample rate,…

copying QRQ CW - testing the "Riemann" Raised Cosine Window - to form the CW NOTE rise/fall edges

every Raised Cosine Window that can be used to form the CW ELEMENT Rise/Fall time edges...sounds just a little bit different at QRQ CW speeds...this test was run at 55 wpm using the Riemann Window, and 3.3 milliseconds was also trimmed off of each element to make it just a tiny bit lighter, thinner sounding, between letters...

The AD5DZ…
