BPQ32 up and running

I now have BPQ32 up and running. It was a very intersesting ordeal, but I am very pleased with the outcome. The site now has a node, BBS Mail and Chat, and Winlink RMS. I must thank Jeff WA4ZKO for his time and help in making this happen. This node is now connected to a node in Owensboro and Dry Ridge. Now it is time to build on this system and add users.

New Narrow band weak signal mode for LF/MF

There is a new narrow band weak signal mode for LF/MF by ZL2AFP. This mode is like PSK but not exactly like it. ZL2AFP CMSK  advances or retards the frequency to get a 180 degree phase shift in one bit period. The program window and waterfall remind me of The FLdigi program, only a little simpler.  I have not tried this mode yet but it looks interesting. For more information:

A Homebrew 2.4Ghz VSWR Meter

Here is a very good example of a Ham building a piece of test equipment. This would be very handy for testing HSMM radios. PE2ER did a great job showing the construction of this meter. Check it out.
