Hi Jochen,

I think the discussion about Opera's own 'deep search' mode (or whatever the proper name is) was done here (or on "the other" reflector) over a year ago, and the main problem I see is that the 'real time web-based exchange' of currently active stations means fooling oneself. Consider this: You know there are only four possible callsigns which have been transmitting, so in reality the software only has to decide for a TWO BIT number. Much easier than "really" decoding the entire number of message bits in an Opera message.
In my very personal point of view, this 'real time web exchange of
stations (calls) which are currently transmitting' should not be used at
For comparison, Markus' (DF6NM's) own deep search uses a quite large
table which is *static*, which means that his decoder has no chance to
play unfair (because it doesn't know who's currently active or not), and
it also doesn't know what others receive (over the internet). What I
don't know is how many stations are currently in that list, and thus how
many bits the algorithm effectively has to "decode" (well, it doesn't
really decode, it also makes a best guess from a limited number of list
entries to chose from).
All the additional data which look as if they were "decoded" (eg "VK3ELV
... 140w + Top loaded L 18m vert 80m horz") have been taken from a
database (***including the callsign***), not radio .. the only real
information is the '- 37 dB' report, and the two question marks which
imho may as well have been ten or twenty (considering the season and the
Well just my two pence of wisdom. I don't use Opera and don't think I
ever will.

Hi Wolf,

You are not disappointing me at all. I put this issue under discussion myself.

Please share your opinion about this to this topic to us in detail. Maybe I
