- Dear Meteor Scatter and EME Friends,
Thanks to a number of generous volunteers, CD-ROMs of the WSJT
installation and tutorial files are now being made available at very low
cost for those without high speed internet connections. If you have
problems downloading WSJT over the internet, click here
to find the volunteer in your region and then send an email to enquire
about details. The most recent released version of WSJT is 5.9.0.
Let me also take this opportunity to bring you up to date on the state
of WSJT development. More than 130 people have downloaded the WSJT
source code, recently made "open source" under the GNU General Public
License. A small working group has been formed, made up of individuals
who have offered specific contributions to the future development of
WSJT. The group's present activities include porting WSJT to the Linux
platform, writing an open-source version of the soft-decision Reed
Solomon decoder, and experimentation with a possible new WSJT mode that
could offer some advantages over JT65 at 50 MHz and on the UHF and
microwave bands. The Linux port is already well along, and probably
more than 90% operational.
If you are interested in joining the working group, please send me email
and let me know what you are interested in contributing.
With best New Year's wishes,
-- 73, Joe, K1JT
