Black Cat Systems has announced another update to MultiMode, bringing the Mac Ham Operator utility to version 3.3.5. The new version adds support for a new function. According to Black Cat Systems:
Black Cat Systems (http://www.blackcatsystems.com) has just released version 3.3.5 of MultiMode, a program for amateur radio operators and radio hobbyists that allows the transmission and reception of morse code, slow scan TV, and other modes.
The latest version of MultiMode adds the ability to transmit amateur radio packet transmissions.
MultiMode is a shareware application which allows your Macintosh to decode and transmit several different modes of non-voice communication often heard on short-wave and ham radio. It is the only program of its kind for the Macintosh, rivaling commercial packages for the PC platform costing hundreds of dollars. It is ideal for amateur radio operators, short-wave radio listeners, and other radio enthusiasts. MultiMode is localized for Dutch, French, German, Italian, and Spanish, in addition to English.
MultiMode allows you to decode and display morse code, RTTY, FAX, SSTV, ACARS, and many other modes on your Mac, without any extra hardware. MultiMode now also allows you to transmit in most of the modes of operation.
MultiMode supports the following modes:
- Morse Code (CW)
- RTTY (Baudot)
- SITOR-B / FEC / NAVTEX
- SSTV (Slow Scan TV)
- WEATHER / SATELLITE FAX
- ACARS (Aircraft Communications)
- ALE (Automatic Link Establishment)
- DTMF, CCIR, EIA Tone Modes
- Audio Spectrum Display / FFT Mode
