A Freeware Program for PSK31

DigiPan stands for "Digital Panoramic Tuning" and brings the ease and simplicity of PANORAMIC reception and transmission to PSK31 operation. DigiPan provides a panoramic display of the frequency spectrum in the form of an active dial scale extending the full width of the computer screen. Depending upon the transceiver IF bandwidth, it is possible to "see" as many as 40 to 50 PSK31 stations at one time. Three low-cost  transceiver kits for 10 meters, 20 meters, 30 meters, 40 meters, and 80 meters, the PSK-10, PSK-20, PSK-30, PSK-40, and PSK-80, are available from  Small WonderLabs that make full use of DigiPan's panoramic capabilities through the use of a 3000 Hz wideband IF. An article about DigiPan and the panoramic transceiver can be found starting on page 33 of the June, 2000, QST magazine. Other information about PSK31, including a downloadable copy of the article, is currently available from the ARRLTechnical Information Service.

Digipan works best on a 100 MHz or faster 486 or Pentium processor and requires Windows 95 or greater


Because version 1.6d uses a new log format, you will not be able to see your old log data when upgrading from versions earlier than 1.6d. To enter your old log data into DigiPan 1.6d, go to File, select Import ADIF and import the file digipan.adi into DigiPan 1.6d.

Windows 2000 users - if you get a "Soundcard is already in use or does not exist" error message when you try to run DigiPan, there may be a conflict with a voice modem driver that Windows 2000 installs by default, whether you have one or not. To eliminate the problem, go to Control Panel/System/Device Manager and look for a device called a Unimodem Half-Duplex Audio Device. Disable or remove this device and that should solve the problem.
