PSK Express, my replacement for YGPSK is now available for download and testing. This is still alpha type software and will require a lot of testing. If you are squeamish about untested software, then do not download this
You can download the setup file at ftp://188.8.131.52/pub/pskexpress_setup.exe
This file is about 3 MB and includes everything including all the hamlib support files. In the future I will release updates that include only those files changes and not the initial support files.
To run this software you will need to make sure you have the .NET support libraries installed on your machine. You can check that by looking at the Add/Remove programs in the control panel. If you need the files you can get the installation package from:http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=333325FD-AE52-4E35-B531-508D977D32A6&displaylang=en
Once you have installed this, run your updater to make sure you get the latest security updates. Once you are done, you should be updated to version 3.5 SP1. The minimum requirement to run this software is version 3.0. It WILL NOT run correctly on Version 2.0
This software, unlike YGPSK is multi-mode and will allow you to use PSK, RTTY or MFSK at various speeds. The basic look and feel is similar to YGPSK so if you are experienced with YGPSK, this should be a snap. The README file is a PDF file and can be accessed from the Help menu at any time.
The logging function is also different from YGPSK. I am using a free version of SQL Lite, a really neat and powerfully database that does not require you to install a database server such as MySQl or SQL Server. I’ve also included the SQLite administrator software in case you want to tinker with the databases that are created.
Give it a try and tell me what you think. This will be an ongoing development project in parallel with the development of the updated PropNET software. So things may be a little slow from time to time.
