wsjtx170Just a few minutes ago the new release of WSJT-X, V1.7.0, was released by K1JT, Joe on the WSJT-homepage. The new version contains a lot of new functions an modes but the most useful update for us using the software on the HF-bands is the new Franke-Taylor decoder. This decoder replaces the Koetter-Vardy decoder used in previous WSJT-X versions. The KVASD is no longer necessary to install. In addition to this there is now multi-pass decoding which is very helpful in the crowded JT65-frequencies. The function uses two decoding passes instead of one, increasing the possibility to decode overlapping transmissions or weaker stations buried in a crowded passband.

Download the installation package for windows now from the WSJT-X website or click here to start the download.

Installation packages for Mac and Linux is also available on the WSJT-X website.

The Swedish translation of the user guide is not yet ready for release but will be finished in the first quarter of 2017.
Have fun! 😀
