The software is excellent very well made and stylish. I loved that cascaded calling station is displayed. There is the possibility of a Spanish translation?. wonder how I can do to set the hdr free with JT65 hb9hqx, some manual configuration. CE2VQF
Thank you Very good decoder! Compared with WSJTX latest 1.3 and yours more better 73!
About my station: Computer, Acer Aspire Laptop w/ 2x 27" HP 27BW Monitors (through Matrox Digital DualHead2Go Splitter. Radio: Yaesu FT920. Interface: SignaLink USB. Antenna: 20m Dipole (Purchased on eBay from WA, USA). I have used WSJT-x, JT65-HF & Beat's program here. The HB9HQX version is the simplest of the lot! Yes, it has its downfalls as noted by others, but for the price I have paid, and the Team's time put into this wonderful software package, 5 Stars is a No-Brainer for me! I have used the program since the beginning of February, 2014. My major complaint would be that the software (intermittently) does not key the radio correctly. It is under the impression that it is, but in fact for some weird reason, it just skips a beat here and there. Of course during the most important QSO that you are aiming for! Murphy's Law #101. Quick work-around this issue is to HALT the QSO and TX Enable manually (Works ONLY if you catch this error within 10 seconds.Another Quirk would be that... Of course it now slips my mind! D'Oh! Oh well, eh!... Anyways, what I love about this program the most, is that I have mine set up so I can focus on just working contacts that I have never worked before! Also, if I have worked you, and you are calling CQ, I don't even see you!!! This allows me to focus right on QSO's I need to work on! (Like right now, I MISSED HK3C in FJ24 only because I am typing this out! Bummer, I say! Easy to use, It sure is!!! Fun to use? Sure is! Pleasing to the eyes? Sure is!!! Would I recommend this to a friend? I SURE HAVE!!!! and will continue to do so! Oh, on my wish list would be to see if Beat & the Boys could include JT9-1. JT65 is getting too crammed many days now! (Which is a good thing, on HAM Radio!).
Most of the features of this application are top drawer. The one glaring flaw, as stated in the "Shortcomings" section, is "Poor Decode Result". I've missed many a QSO due to erroneous decode of incoming signals while competing applications (JT65-HF Version 18.104.22.168-Comfort-3.3 ) correctly decode. I have to run a competing application simultaneously to catch any missed decodes. Rather than constantly adding new features, I would suggest concentrating on improving the decode reliability - for me, that would turn my rating of this application from 3 stars to 5 stars!
I have been using this software a few days now. I really like how you have the alerts in cw for such things as someone calling cq. I have been using this with my FT-817 and keying the rig with vox. it has worked very well. Thanks.
