attention POTA SOTA OPs: save 90 percent battery drain on transmitter PA by using a Pulse Density Modulated CW(PDM-CW) Generator by chatGPT C CODE - Live DEMO @30wpm

save 90 percent of your final power amp's battery drain using PDM-CW

instead of sending the full cw element length to the final PA,

PDM-CW sends 1 ms pulses per every 10 ms of cw element instead...

the receiver software patches back in the missing breaks in…
