Morse Code

Postby Wiggy » Mon Mar 16, 2020 9:32 pm

While theres no sport anymore due to that damn virus, ive been scanning up and down the frequencies hoping to find something new to listen to, i came across some morse code, but now i have to find some software to decode it... My question to the good folk out there is...….. are there any free decoders or cheap ones? The only one i found was MRP40 but that was fifty quid!!!! Any suggestions...

Thanks
Wiggy

With a bit of practice the best decoder is the one between your ears... Cheap as well!!

fldigi is opensource, multipsk is closed source but amateur modes decoding is free.

As Morse is Morse - how would the software tell if it was amateur or commercial?
