MutliMode Updated to Version 5.10

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)
RTTY (Baudot and ASCII)
SSTV (Slow Scan TV)
ACARS (Aircraft Communications)
Packet (300 and 1200 baud)
ALE (Automatic Link Establishment)
DTMF (touch tone), CCIR, EIA Tone Modes
ICAO Selcal
Audio Spectrum Display / FFT Mode

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.
