WSJT 6 work

I have begun helping Joe Taylor, K1JT, author of WJST in an effort to port WSJT to Linux, and to add a GPL version of the soft decision Reed Solomon decoder so we can remove KSVAD (a licensed and proprietary and closed source decoder).

Please check out a short pdf of the work so far: wjst.pdf

This work is being done by a group of people and the work is being shared with svn on a berlios.de server.

Stand by for more.

December in Marburg, Germany

I spent two working weeks in Marburg Germany with Karl Meinzer at Phillips (Marburg) University in the ZEL ( Zentrale Entwicklungslabor für Elektronik).
