(Version 2.13 5-23-03)
I thought WinPSK was finally dead until the bright idea came about to move all the PSK31 DSP code into a portable DLL(Dynamic Link Library) and make it available to other software developers for use in their own PSK31 applications.
As a result, I needed a test bed for this new DLL so here comes version 2.0. A fellow ham also convinced me that WinPSK still could find some use for disabled hams who have difficulty managing a mouse. WinPSK now has been structured to be more friendly with more macros and better use of the Function keys.
This program was not intended to be a full-featured program for serious PSK31 use. It is made available to software developers as an example of how to use the newPSKCore DLL and Visual C++ to make a complete PSK31 application.
The program is free to any licensed amateur radio operator.
