Whats new in Digital voice over HF radio?  

Download FreeDV Digital Voice for HF

Introduction

FreeDV is a GUI application for Windows and Linux that allows any SSB radio to be used for low bit rate digital voice.

Speech is compressed down to 1400 bit/s then modulated onto a 1100 Hz wide QPSK signal which is sent to the Mic input of a SSB radio. On receive, the signal is received by the SSB radio, then demodulated and decoded by FreeDV.

FreeDV was built by an international team of Radio Amateurs working together on coding, design, user interface and testing. FreeDV is open source software, released under the GNU Public License version 2.1. The FDMDV modem and Codec 2 Speech codec used in FreeDV are also open source.

A good place to try the FreeDV digital voice software is on 14.236. Enjoy

Latest version of FreeDV is 0.96.5 dated August 15, 2013 This Repairs T/R switching (including both serial control line switching and hamlib serial commands) and a conflict in the use of the space bar between the options panel and T/R switching.

The new version 0.96 provides a 1600 bit-per-second mode that communicates at much lower signal levels than previously. Communications should be readable down to 2 dB S/N, and long-distance contacts are reported using 1-2 watts power. A compatibility mode for communication with the older 0.91 version is included. An executable program for Windows is presently available, Linux and other platforms are coming soon.
