This portends potential use on narrowband signals at LF.

Hi Everyone,

The May 1999 issue of QST had an interesting article about
the PSK31 digital mode being used by hams.

I downloaded the software, and the RX-320 turns out to be
a very good receiver for that mode - especially when you
use fine tuning of 1 Hz.  I was able to receive a number
of signals around 14.070 Mhz that were almost totally
buried in the noise.

In any event, the software is fun to play with and it is
free at http://www.aintel.bi.ehu.es/psk31.html



P.S.  To the ear PSK31 sounds like a tone that is slightly warbling
very fast.  It is very distinctive from CW, RTTY or various
packet modes.
