Re: Laptop info
- Hi Phil,
If you plan to use it for Meteor Scatter only which is predominately
FSK441 and little JT6M, a 266MHz laptop will work fine.
JT65 takes alot more CPU than JT44 did. Decodes take several times
longer on my older CPU (166Mhz). Infact, I was not pleased. My old
laptop is a workhorse on all the other modes. I also use it for all
the other digital modes (PSK, RTTY and CW).
JT65 runs fine on my newer computers (1 GHz+).
You might want to try the laptop computer out as a Monitor and see
what happens before you buy it.

MessagePhilI have been succesfully using the thinkpad 560X with 233M processor and 96M memory for the last couple of years with wsjt. It cost $82 on ebay. I use a belkin usb to serial adaptor to control the PTT and use the onboard serial port to connect to a surplus $15 motorola UT+ and run Nmeatime to maintain timing. Nmeatime is vital as I find the time drifts under Windows 98SE. On my other 560X running win 95 i dont need itDaveww2r
