[6:00 AM Mac Ham Operators: MultiMode Upgraded To Version 3.3
Black Cat Systems has released MultiMode 3.3, a decoding program for amateur radio operators and radio hobbyists. The latest version of MultiMode allows your Macintosh to decode and transmit several different modes of non-voice communication often heard on short-wave and ham radio. According to Black Cat Systems:
The latest version of MultiMode adds the ability to decode amateur radio packet transmissions (which are similar to modems except a two way radio instead of a phone line is used).
MultiMode allows users 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. Today, you can use the processing power of your Macintosh to decode and display these modes, without any hardware. Just connect your radio's speaker output to your Mac's microphone input, and you're ready to go.
MultiMode 3.3 is available immediately from the Black Cat Systems site for US$89. For more information on MultiMode, please visit the Black Cat Systems Web site.
