Chris,

I think the conservation of computing resources can be taken too far.  Especially given how cheap RAM, processing power and storage has become.

As a user, I really don’t care how spartan the code is as long as it works.  Saving a few milliseconds isn’t on my radar.

I would like to see what they use. Any input you have would be appreciated. I have access to a field out back from me. I've just not taken the time to put any wires up at home. I also would like a portable one to use for outings.

Hey Barry,

I saw stations working you on 20m last night but I still can't find the DX pipe to BC yet.

I will keep looking though.  My luck has got to change.

Mike...I prefer Dodge...though I do drive a GMC. I've never owned a Ford. =)

When I started a couple years ago I started with Ham Radio Deluxe. I liked it, I really liked the interface. I thought it was clean and modern. Some of the older ones I just really cannot stand the look. I've tried a bunch and didn't care for them. Once HRD went to a more pay system, I moved to DXLab Suite and I've really liked using WinWarbler. So many options, maybe too many. I intend on trying some of the new software that was mentioned in this post. 

Thanks,

I don’t know about you, Mike, but I always really liked the look of the waterfall in Digipan.  The default waterfall settings in DM780 I thought were abysmal.  It took quite a bit of tweaking for me to get that nice Digipan look.  The cool thing about DM780 is that it is very customizable.

 

Recently I was compelled to us Fldigi for Field Day.  I am not a fan.  For one thing I never could get the “center” frequency to work via the various machine controls.  That was a deal-breaker for me.

Totally agree, Eric.  That waterfall is the best I've ever seen... and I've looked at a lot of the software that's out there today.  I wish some of the other authors would put some time and effort into emulating the Digipan waterfall and get rid of the washed-out, out-of-focus looking waterfalls. 

I really don't want a piece of software that butters my toast and rotates my tires... I want a piece of software that does what Digipan did... and does it well.

Looking at PSKExpress again now... got it reinstalled last night and am very hopeful.
