CW decoding

I did a test with the MRP4064 CW decoder and at the same time CWSkimmer. I think they are quite the same. Sometimes MRP is accurate another time CWskimmer. The pros for Cwskimmer is the multi decoding of more than 1 station. When I transmit with MRP and the other station changed the transmit frequency the station is out of my range for decoding. I do not have this with CWskimmer. Only you have to pay 75 bucks for CWskimmer, and 50 bucks for MRP. That is a whole lot of money. Learning CW is for free but it takes some effort to learn. And yes, I did work 3V8BB (Tunisia) on 10 meter today.

  1. Good afternoon Paul, I do have MRP40 and have found it to be good for me. I do agree if the station does drift with MRP40 they are out of the decode area. I have not had that happen often. The program does a have a price to it but very well supported and rock solid with performance. Skimmer is good multi code decoding and would be great for contests.

  3. Hi Mike, the new version of MRP40 works fine now. I will use both programs. And my own ears of course whenever the programs fails. ;-) 73 Paul

  4. Hallo Paul, ik weiger om voor beide programma's te betalen. Heb wel eens een gekraakte versie van skimmer geprobeerd maar werkte bij mij helaas niet. Ik houd het mooi bij DM780. En anders moet ik maar CW gaan leren, daar kan geen programma tegen op. Overigens heb ik toch nog 27 QSO in de WPX gemaakt gisteren. 73, Bas

    1. Hallo Bas, ja het is best veel geld. Maar goed, als DM780 voor jou goed werkt dan is dat toch goed. Het is voor mij ook slechts een hulpmiddel, want ik luister altijd mee. Ik heb het wel eens geprobeerd zonder mee te luisteren en de audio direct toe te voegen aan CWskimmer. Maar dat werkt niet bij mij, ik moet het CW signaal zelf kunnen horen.
