      Been away from the computer..yes there is like MixW and digipan and some others and there quite good in comments like on here, but as with every group you need a person close by you can turn to to see what your doing wrong, for example I always hear about this so called waterfall and never could figure what part of the screen there talking about, I did manage to down load a picture of it, but if it wasnt for that picture I would never have found it on my own.
      Unlike the old days when you had a local ham to turn to. There is a group here in San Diego that is planning on having a demo on PSK but I might not be able to attend as I am subject to being deployed to a ship at any time. Work for Uncle but not Navy..

      Thanks again,

      how little I asked for help on PSK and I told him that Ehams is not
      the only group to turn to for info, the best source I feel is to have
      a fellow in your area that is willing to sit down and show you how to
      do it and where to turn to for help.

      came by after we were all licensed and showed us how to setup the
      radio's and the how to install things like the antennas. It made it a
      fun part learning. In my Job I will probably have to rely on hams I
      know in my travels or contact one's closer to home, like DU1EV who
      might know a ham into the PSK.
