Subject: MixW and CQ100

For those that may be interested it is quite easy to interface MixW with CQ100 allowing you to operate a number of digital modes. I have been using it quite successfully with CW lately.

You can download the program at http://www.mixw.net
It's not free, but has a demo mode that doesn't expire.

To use it with CQ100 click on the CONFIGURE button and then
the TRCVR CAT/PTT. Check the box that says 'cw out via soundcard'.
You will need to put CQ100 in the VOX mode.

A little tweaking of the audio mixer in windows should have you operating in no time. It also contains a nice logbook.

I would like to hear from anyone that would like to try some of these digital modes on CQ100.

Subject: Digital operation

I will be operating on or about 14.120 Mhz with various digital modes the next few days. Some of the modes I will use will be PSK31, Hellschreiber and Olivia. If you have MixW or another application capable of interfacing with CQ100 please answer my CQ. I will also be experimenting with Slow Scan TV (SSTV) on 14.230 using Scotty 1.

Subject: Successful QSOs in PSK31

Thanks to Willy ON5KN and Per SM0BOG I completed two very successful PSK31 QSOs on CQ100. I am using the MixW program and Willy was using the Digipan program.

I would like to request that the frequency of 14.120 be reserved for PSK and other types of digital QSOs?

Hi Bob. Its good to hear smart people are getting these modes to work as VOIP. My experiments 2 months ago were not very successful, but I had no experience with digital modes.

I thought I heard somewhere that 14.072 was the standard Freq for PSK31. Can anyone confirm this? If you wish to mix voice during these experiments, 14.120 is a good choice. Is 14.230 the standard for SSTV?

I have never worked digital modes, so its all new to me. I have played with Digipan, MixW and MMTY on my computer.

Hi Doug

Yep, 14.070 is the meeting place for PSK31 on the HF bands.
I know that you conduct code practice sessions near there and that
you have reserved that sub-band for cw use.

14.120 in my opinion is a good choice because few people use it for
voice contacts and it allows digital users to work out problems via voice if need be. I've also been using 14.230 for SSTV because that is the SSTV HF frequency.

Thanks for providing us with this medium to experiment with VOIP and provide an excellent alternative for those with limited HF capabilities!
You can certainly look forward to my subscription when the time comes.

14.120 and downward vicinity sounds good to me. Let's say its a guideline and not a rule.
