Using Linux software , a CW KEYER, iambic paddles, and a straight key are demo'd in this video...all morse code instruments are ready to send cw at any time in "near zero" low latency so there is no lag felt when keying any of these virtual Linux software morse code generators with your actual hardware iambic paddles, or straight key...

Testing the ability of iLBC (internet Low Bitrate Codec) to transmit and receive morse code audio tones over the internet with low bandwidth used and good packet loss concealment. By itself, this codec does not make for pleasant copy, however, if the received tone is regenerated, the iLBC CODEC seems to provide a highly dependable internet audio stream of full duplex morse code audio notes...for a QSO between 2 or more cw ops over the internet with low latency - and good qsk -…Continue

Using 2 seperate Jitsi voip clients/computers, that were connected to each other over the internet, this video demonstrates the audio quality of the morse code audio tones as they are transmitted from one SIP CLIENT to the other SIP CLIENT over the Session Initiation Protocol / VOIP / internet pathways.
Codecs tested for morse code audio quality are:
1. iLBC / 8000
2. Silk / 8000
3. G722 /…

YPLog has one of the best qrq cw keyboards for sending cw at very high speeds (over 70 wpm). Its audio output however, could use some filtering. This video shows 2 different types of audio filters used with YPLog when sending at QRQ levels, a cw text file.
1. first filter is a cw regenerative filter that recreates the original incoming cw notes from REAPER's native apps..
- audio in threshold to trigger a midi note out via REAGATE
- a cw audio note synthesizer keyed by…

CWirc is a LInux plugin for Xchat that was originally designed to send morse code over an irc channel.
This video shows how to adapt the CWirc plugin in order to use it to send cw with your PADDLES, BUG OR KEY by "keying" the CWirc APP, and send morse code audio tones to your computer sound card. You can use if to key your RIG(with an audio derived…Continue
Short competition (recorded live) between 2 very good qrq cw software keyboards - CwType verses YPLog -
sending a short text file from NASA NEWS, at 75 wpm. Timing is the main criteria since both keyboards are keying sineCW, a software code practice oscillator vst plugin, so they will "sound" the same for the most part, but how the cw is coded for precise morse [ element / spaces ] timing in software at qrq levels will be slightly different. YPLog has many adjustments…Continue
