There are lots of soundcard based PSK31 packages to choose from in the Ubuntu sources. I have only looked at each one very briefly so I may well have missed some important features and options. Most of these programs offer additional modes to BPSK31 which is all I’ve checked so far. Some programs failed to run immediately and I have not looked at those at all – there could well be some superb programs I’ve missed out for want of a manual install.

Initial findings

  • Ran immediately but the window at 812 x 669 pixels is too large for the screen space available.
  • Plenty of configuration options to tailor the waterfall section to your own preference.
  • Visible bandwith fits perfectly with a wide SSB filter setting.
  • Decoded BPSK31 well

This program deserves a more in depth.
