Comparison with MRP40 PC software Morse Code Reader was compared side-by-side to the commonly-available PC commercial software MRP40 via audio link from a transmitter sidetone speaker output. The nominal transmission rate was 18 wpm and the test message was 50 5 character code groups. Very little audio noise was present. MRP40 copied the message completely, Morse Code Reader did very poorly. Note that Morse Code Reader finds the sidetone frequency and the transmission rate itself, whereas MRP40 was running with a specified (and correct) sidetone frequency and transmission rate. Wish Morse Code Reader was a better performer. It might do better if it allowed specification of the sidetone frequency and transmission rate. NQ8Z
Surprisingly bettern than a paid app I actually paid for the paid app which I found out that this FREE app is actually better. The other Decoder is horrible, can't decode anything. This one, decodes really well as long as you have low noise. Still, I now am discovering that I need to really put my thinking cap on to learn the proper copying method such as Koch or Fansworth. Long live CW!
BETTER THAN A DEDICATED CODE READER This app is terrific and works better than my MFJ Pocket CW Reader. There are no controls to tweak, you just turn it on, put it near a radio receiving CW (Morse Code) and it works! It cannot decode weak signals lost in static but if you can get a signal that's stronger than the static, even by a little, it works very well. It does have a tendency to display random characters, especially the "+" and "=" signs when not locked on to a strong signal. Overall, I give it four stars for ease-of-use, accuracy, type and size of font and nice screen display with a little signal strength gauge. It gets a fifth star because it's free! I would be willing to pay for this app and I would highly recommend it to people considering installing it.
Only works under limited conditions. I tested it on a slow, repeating signal in my area. I didn't have control over the threshold or the speed, and the program didn't figure them out on its own, so it kept truncating letters or listening to static. Otherwise, it's a neat idea. It probably works with faster hams and/or clearer signals.
I absolutely love this! It's a good app, and does what it promises . There is one slight issue though. When ever I encode the sign ' ( " it will decode it as " ) " i tried many speeds and frequencies. I think you have a minor error. Other then that, 5 stars. for you
Good start, not so good results This is a great attempt that only needs some improvements in future versions. Cant decode anything so far but it shouldnt be hard to make it better at decoding. Thanks for your work Jacek!
