There is a description of the data encoding in the yahoo group ,
along with the last working version one-4-one , 15 chrs plain
text 120 second tx time version , alas only -20 dB s/n
originally developed as a plug in replacement for the CW key ,
later the beacon function found extended use across most bands in use
Other than that , its a serial data mode , using Manchester coding ,
transmission is by on/off keying of a single carrier , FEC and AFC
provide additional sensitivity and negates the need for high
stability tx/rx , originally 50% of the signal needed to be recovered
for decode , this is now app 40% , ie 60% random loss can occur.
Its packaged as a stand alone windows application , that provides
tx/rx and web linkage to other users and the psk-map
the tx cycle time is used to increase the sensitivity , changes to
the DSP are provided , linked to band, to accommodate changes of
requirements , the longer op8/16/32 1H 2H [4H audio sound card sdr]
being suited to low frequency , where as the Op4/2/1 best fit HF ,
the more experimental Op05 [ 30 second -20 dB] finding good use , 145
MHZ up to 10 GHz
The 'Crazy Gang' in EA , regularly see 500 + K 2/ 70cm / 23 cm ,some
times 1500 K on 2 meters
