Version 3.0 is coming


Rob Robinett
 

For those of you who don't join our Wednesday 18:00 UTC Zoom call, I thought it would be useful to let you know that I am actively working on a major new version of WD which will include these major new features:

1) Support for the new FST4W transmission modes added in WSJT-x V2.3.0, in particular the 5,15, and 30 minute packets.  Each band configured to receive them  will consume up to 100+ MBytes of space in /tmp/wsprdaemon 
2) Support for additional SDRs supported by the SoapyAPI service.  These include SDRPlay, RTL-SDR, Red Pitaya and many others.

It may be several weeks before I have a v3.0 release candidate running at the beta sites, but I wanted WD users that it is still under active development.

Would you be able to list the call signs of the beta sites?

I would like to be able to account for changes in spot volume increases that are suggested by the new version of wsjtx which suggests a -2db s/n  improvement

TIA.

Yes, I will share that list privately.
But I am weeks aways from alpha testing 3.0
