      Enhanced Color Added To Audio

      Today, April 1, the American Amateur Radio Relay League, ARRL, announced that they have continued developing enhanced audio with color. Initial studies have been a cooperative effort with both CQ Magazine and INRAD, the filter specialists.

      The characteristics of audio and color have heretofore shown much promise. Studies have been done using eight bit color streams with software written for the Windows 3.1 platform.

      The promise if a marriage of sound and color have shown the most promise in contesting situations. Here the colors have helped identify domestic stations as the color of the operator's signal has been mapped to the colors on a standard map of the United States. The next step, begun this April first, is to have a ham radio operator assign a color to his QSO partner. The expectation is that nets will reference both an amateur's call-sign and color. The addition of color will help lessen the confusion on a busy net.

      Also of interest to the ARRL, CQ, and INRAD is the addition of more vibrant color with higher definition and coordination with sound. For example, QRN will be green, the noise floor will be pink, while big gun signals will be an envious blue. Rare DX will stand out with an attention getting bright red.

      "Studies have shown much promise" was the announcement from WJ0KE, the spokesman from the ARRL. Stay tuned as efforts bear fruit which is expected to ripen each April Fool's Day.
