EasyPal Errors / Warnings

After getting many problems with my Virus software giving False Positive warnings I have gone over to Microsoft Security Essentials and all seems OK now. This is a FREE program. Click HERE for full details of program + download.

Still getting virus warnings? Fully remove EasyPal from your PC and delete all folders then re install. This will remove any left over files from older versions that could be causing the problem.

EasyPal

Download 03/Feb 2014 HERE

1. With the "Mov" tab
Movies may be dropped and will play. This movie may be transmitted by clicking the "TX" box.
Any file may be dropped here, but will not display if it is not a movie.

2. A new UTC time format has been made. Some W7 systems did not like the old system.

3. While uploading or downloading, the RX thread is disabled and the waterfall stops.
This prevents crashing if downloading and uploading attempts to take place together.
The uploading and downloading will be slightly faster and smoother.

4. The download info box has a "X" which will abort the download if clicked.
If an error appears while downloading, click off the error box, click the "X"
and if necessary click anywhere in the waterfall.
Do this with any error.

5. There will always be some failures with downloading which is often caused by "vk4aes.com" having too many users at the same time.
The usual failure is that the filesize request for the progress bar is not completed by the server.
If this is a constant problem, then use your own defined server after setting it up under "User defined server.............

5. Several bugs have been addressed and enhancements made.

Setting up EasyPal Hybrid to use another server and how it works

EasyPal Hybrid Logo

With EasyPal Hybrid mode you can use your own server. This will help ease the load on Erik's server. First click on the Hybrid tab and then click on "User Defined Server"

Setting up EasyPal Hybrid server

This will bring up

EasyPal setting up your own server

You enter in your own server FTP details and click the USE button. Now when you TX a Hybrid your TX image will be uploaded to your own server and any receiving stations will pick up the file from your server.

I have heard comments on air about EasyPal sending your FTP password ! EasyPal just sends a location to collect the file so no password needed. It work just like me sending you a email with a link to download a file.

FreeDV Digital Voice for HF

Latest version 0.96.5 August 15, 2013

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.

SSTV Tools by VE3NEA

A set of troubleshooting and research tools for the SSTV enthusiasts.
For Windows 95/98/ME/NT4/2000/XP/7

 

SSTV Signal Generator

What it is
This program generates SSTV audio signals from a bitmap and saves them in a WAV or MMV file. Multiple SSTV formats and sampling rates are supported. The software can generate either a clean signal suitable for transmission, or a signal contaminated with noise, suffering from QSB, etc. - much like in Morse Runner, but with all effects carefully calibrated and measured in dB, Hz, and ms.

What it is good for

  • Create pre-canned SSTV messages, such as "CQ" or "73 DE", and transmit them without any SSTV software, just by playing the audio back in a media player.
  • Test your SSTV receiving software and see how tolerant it is to the noise, soundcard calibraion errors, receiver frequency offset, etc. Compare different receiving programs quantitatively.

SSTV Tools VE3NEA

 

SSTV Signal Viewer

What it is
This program demodulates FM signals from a WAV or MMV file and plots the frequency and magnitude vs. time. It is an extension of the original idea by OK2MNM, implemented with GUI and using a better FM demodulator based on Hilbert transform.

What it is good for
You can use it to view both the files generated by your SSTV program and the ones recorded off the air. Find out what exactly your signal consists of, how accurately it is generated, see how the FSK ID is encoded, discover the parameters of an unknown format, etc.

SSTV Image Denoiser

What it is
This program removes noise from the pictures. The denoising algorithm is specifically optimized for the SSTV images received off the air. Unlike other noise filters used in SSTV software, this one does nor blur the image, and preserves as much fine detail as possible.

What it is good for

Clean up your archive of SSTV pictures, prepare received images for publishing on the web.

How to use it
  • Click on the Load Image button, and select the image that will be denoised.
  • Select the filter order and smoothness parameter. The default order of 3 and smoothness of 0.4 are a good start.
  • Click on the Denoise Image button.
  • Play with the filter settings and find the parameters that work best for the given image.
  • Click on the Save Image button to save the denoised image.
For best results, configure your SSTV software to save received pictures as BMP. Though the Denoiser can load and save BMP, PNG, JPG and GIF images, it works best on the uncompressed BMP files. Images compressed with a lossy algorithm, such as JPG, may look great, but they do not contain all information required for denoising.

Auto Reboot under Windows 7 using Task Scheduler

I run my MMSSTV and EasyPal round the clock and sometimes work away from home and after getting regular lockups I decided to have all my PC's do a auto-reboot every night at 3am. Here is how to do it.

1. Launch Task Scheduler. You will find this in (All Programs -> Accessories -> Syetem tools)

2. Click Action and select Create Basic task.

3. Type Auto Restart (or others you want) in the Name box and click Next.

4. Select Daily and click Next

5. Type the time you want to restart the computer and click Next.

6. Select Start a program and click Next.

7. Click Browser and navigate to %SystemRoot%\System32 and select Shutdown.exe and click Open. Type –F –R in the Add arguments (optional) box and click Next. Arguments can be password and username.

8. Click Finish.

This is very handy if you run programs 24/7 and sometimes get lockups as you can have your programs auto start on reboot.

You can set this to re-boot your PC how ever often you want.

Sound card problems with MMSSTV ??

Download this small file and put it in your MMSSTV folder, then go to options > Setup MMSSTV > Misc and under Device ID pick "sc_select" then OK. This will open a new window and you can chose both your TX and RX audio cards. This is very helpful if you want to use 2 sound cards or sometimes needed with the Signalink USB.
