Decoders

Decoders are software that will decode digital or tonal data that is transmitted over the air waves. This includes morse code (aka CW), sstv, and other digital data. Be advised that some digital data is illegal to decode and intercept, due to privacy laws in the USA. When in doubt, don't decode!

Transceivers and Repeaters

Transceivers are radios that can both transmit and recieve, including handheld devices. Repeaters will take a weak signal, amplify it, and then transmit it as a strong signal so it can reach longer distances.Do not use these software based transcievers or repeaters if you do not have a valid FCC Shortwave Radio license.
