Black Cat Software has released an update to MultiMode, its decoder and transmitter Mac utility for iNon-voice communicationi (Think Morse Code). MultiMode will take incoming codes and display their decoded messages on your Mac. It will also encode a message for you, and transmit it through your communication gear (Think Ham Radio). The update features support for new modes, and other enhanced functionality.
MultiMode supports the following codes:
Morse Code (CW)
QRSS (Slow speed CW)
WEATHER / SATELLITE FAX
RTTY (Baudot and ASCII)
SITOR-A / SITOR-B / FEC / NAVTEX

The new version adds the following features:
- Added RIT offset to PSK31 mode.
- Added 7/8 bit and 1/1.5/2 stop bit selections to ASCII mode.
- Improved ASCII demodulation under poor reception conditions.
- Added CHU FSK decode mode to decode atomic clock time of day transmissions.
- Fixed a bug that could cause MT63 mode to crash.
- Changed the text display font to one with a slash through the zero.
