  Compact MS-Soft for PC
V5.1 / Jan 12th, 2002   by Ilkka Yrjola, OH5IY
a program to transmit high speed morse code in automated, customizable sequence
- can create a list of missing squares within
MS-range(<2250 km), which is based on a
user-created list of worked squares.
- OH5IY's elaborate paper on Meteor Observations with VHF Radio & Computer also
links to a download of his MCT5X software for
counting meteor reflections with radio
- offers download of MAnalyzer V0.94
(mod A & B) by OH2AYP, 01/2002 version
software that uses PC & soundcard to generate numeric statistics on meteor
total reflection duration and counts

 WSJT V5.8.6  beta release version Sept 23 rd, 2005
Please read update/version history
With V5.8.6 it is no longer necessary/desirable
to run SPECTRAN simultaneously with WSJT.
Created by Joe, K1JT, WSJT is a computer
program for VHF/UHF communication using
state of the art digital techniques. It can
decode fraction-of-a-second signals reflected
from meteor trails, as well as steady signals
more than 10dB weaker than those required
for conventional CW.
WSJT is freely available to radio amateurs
for non-commercial purposes.
Includes :
- FSK441 MS operation
   (FSK441B & FSK441C with Forward Error Correction)
- JT6M MS operation
   (JT6M designed for meteorscatter on 50MHz)

- JT44 EME operation (including Echo Mode)
- JT65 EME operation
complete with all new WSJT User's Guide

SimJT V0.8.1   by Joe, K1JT
utility program to generate wav-files for
testing and calibrating your own CW copying
ability or the sensitivity of the JT65 decoder,
generates CW & JT65 signals.

Joe is Dr. Joseph Taylor, 1993 Nobel laureate
in physics, for the discovery of a new type of pulsar (Princeton Pulsar Group), see his

autobiography at the Nobel e-Museum

Your Sky
The interactive planetarium of the Web
You can produce maps for any time, date, viewpoint, and observing location. If you enter the orbital elements of an asteroid or comet (or meteor shower !), Your Sky will compute its current position and plot it on the map. Each map is accompanied by an ephemeris for the Sun, Moon, planets, and any tracked asteroid or comet.
