New soundcard packet programs are enhancing the HF technology and it's
working better than ever. There's something like 5 new projects but
these are the two I remember off hand:
Even more exciting news is that these new programs allow 2400 and 4800
baud packet data with no changes to the radio interface. With a
little lunck I'm going to try testing that this next week. There's
some opportunities here!
