Rivet vs. RadioCom 6
« on: April 04, 2013, 0115 UTC »
ALCON,

Since I am new to decoding, I need some advice on what program to run to decode digital signals to text.  I bought RadioCom 6 but had to purchase a serial to usb converter which should be hear in a few days.  I also joined Enigma 2000 and heard about Rivet but I cannot seem to get it to run.  I have the latest version of Java and ran .jar fix but it still would not run. I called Dell and their tech said Rivet can only run in Linux but the group said this in not correct.  Any help would be much appreciated.

V/r

Have you tried addressing your problem to Ian on the enigma yahoo group? It's his program..... I think. When I was a member( I apparently was booted for lack of posts just the other day), I saw people occasionally post queries about rivet to him & he seemed helpful. I couldn't get it to run either but I just gave up. I think Multipsk & Sigmira both work well. Fldigi is also good. The VOA radiogram/mighty KBC digital test transmissions work very well with fldigi.

Good luck

I guess I'm not the only one who was booted for lack of inactivity. ;)  It's a good group with lots of information. They just don't tolerate lurkers or semi-active members.

Thanks for the information.  I will also look into WinRadio's software options, too.
