you could send morse code at super
sonic speed and use the power of your DSP sound card.....
It IS possible to conduct a short QSO bouncing off a single meteor flashing
across the sky.
The concept of sending and
receiving high speed Morse code is not new. Using a tape recorder it is
possible to record you CW message then play the recording into your
transmitter at high speed. At the receiving end, the message is
recorded on a high speed tape recorder and then slowed down to normal speed so
the Morse code signal can be decoded. Works great with the
significant time available to bounce signals off the ionized effect of a
Using the advantages of your
DSP soundcard in your computer, WSJT encodes your message using
frequency shift keying (FSK) to increase the efficiency of your message for transmission at the rate of only a fraction of a second.
Quick enough to be achieved in both directions with the aid of a single
meteor trail.... if you can catch one. Recent upgrades have added 2 more
FSK sub-modes featuring
Forward Error Correction (FEC) WOW!
