PSK tool in SSDR for Mac

Options

Hi,


The SSDR for Mac is updated and now has a PSK Tool besides the FT8 Tool. I don’t mean the PSK Reporter tool…. This PSK is supposed to make QSO’s in PSK mode. Unfortunately I didn’t succeed yet to bring this tool alive. I click on RX in the tool but nothing happens. I don’t see any waterfall either. Is there someone out here who can give me tips/hints to use PSK Tool? Marcus’ manual don’t even mention this particular tool….

    Hi, see attached screen with SmartSDR version 2.9.25 (the latest I think!).

    Hi Jean_Luc,

    Did you made some adjustments in the settings, or is it just like FT8-tool: open the tool, click on RX and the magic will happen??

    Hi Dirk,

    No adjustments, it's just like FT8-tool. Magic!

    The only problem is finding QSOs in PSK, it's becoming rather rare these days! Hi!

    Here I am using a MacMini M2, but I don't think that can play a role.

    I know there is a procedure to completely reset Mac SmartSDR, but I don't remember it, ask Marcus, he usually responds very quickly.

    But another OM in the community must also be able to help you…

    Ciao, Jean-Luc

    (and let me know when the issue will be fixed! :-)

    Sorry for repeating the message 3 times, I did not see that the messages were subject to validation, there is just a small message which appears at the bottom left of the window after having validated (post comment) and the content of what is entered disappears, which is very disturbing!
    And I don't know how to make the excess messages disappear!

    This time the last message was not submitted for validation! This thing is weird!

    Hi Jean-Luc, your message got flagged by the anti-spam filter. Every once in a while, it flags a perfectly fine message (like yours), and every once in a while it doesn't flag an obvious spam post. I try to release good posts and get rid of actual spam ASAP.

    Hi Len,
    No worries, I was wrong because my message disappeared every time I posted and I didn't understand why. I won't be fooled again!
    73 and thank you for your work!

    I have not found the magic. There are no instructions — yet — but I trust that they will come. When I finally get signals coming in they are, for the most part, garbage. Sometimes I can see a call sign and a CQ in blue, but the other characters are garbage and I see no way to adjust them. I am looking forward to this mode for QSOs.
