PSK31 or "Phase Shift Keying, 31 Baud", also BPSK31 and QPSK31, is a popular computer-sound card-generated radioteletype mode, used primarily by amateur radio operators to conduct real-time keyboard-to-keyboard chat, most often using frequencies in the high frequency amateur radio bands (near-shortwave). PSK31 is a digital communications mode which is intended for live keyboard-to- keyboard conversations, similar to radioteletype. Its data rate is bauds ( about 50 word-per-minute), and its narrow bandwidth (approximately 60 Hz at - 26 dB) reduces its susceptibility to noise. PSK31's ITU emission designator is 60H0J2B. By Steve Ford, WB8IMY. There's a new HF digital mode in town and the gossip is flying! I love RTTY. We have a warm relationship that goes back to my new-ham days in the early '70s when I was pounding green keys and reading conversations off rolls of yellow teletype paper. (Personal computer? What's that ?) I jumped.
About PSK PSK31 is a digital communication mode for amateur radio. It is one of the most common and easy-to-use digital modes as a PSK31 station needs only to consist of an SSB transceiver, an antenna, and a soundcard equipped PC . does not impact decoding, but it is harder to work it if you can't see it. • Use UPPER CASE characters sparingly. Lower case text in PSK31 varicode transmits fewer bits of data, thus you'll increase transmit speed and improve the likelihood of proper decoding on the other end. For example, the difference of a lowercase e and. Digital Modes II. PSK31 and JT Tom Worthington. Maui Amateur Radio Club. October 8, (PSK31 is from 8/8/).

2 Jan While using the PSK31 mode you often see people giving signal reports using the RST method (Readability, Strength, Tone). This was originally devised for Morse Code use, but has also widely been used for other modes like SSB (where Tone is dropped). Naturally many operators come from CW and. PSK is a digital communication mode for amateur radio. It is one of many, but probably the most common and easy-to- use digital mode as a PSK station needs only to consist of an SSB transceiver, an antenna, and a soundcard equipped PC or an external Soundcard Interface. PSK is very well supported and there is. PSK63 is gaining popularity, with many programs now supporting this mode. The pro's for this mode are the fact that data is sent and received at twice the rate of normal PSK31, so is great for chatting and contest exchanges. The con's to this mode are the increased bandwidth required over PSK31, the increase in power.
