It’s not that I don’t like actually TALKING to people, but the ability to make contact with modest antenna systems and very low power has its own appeal. I have a digital page here where I will place more detail about the mode and the programs I am using.
However, I’ll toss out two programs of note. For basic QSO, DX chasing and contesting, I use the DXlabs suite of programs. The logging program there is tremendous and the digital mode component (Winwarbler) is excellent in psk and rtty modes.
To work almost any digital mode out there and also have the capability for simple QSOs and DX, and really quite decent contesting, use FLdigi. If you use DXlabs or the N1MM logger there is a gateway program to link the FLdigi log to those logs.
