Amalgamated DGPS expiration date ?
« on: February 24, 2017, 1735 UTC »
Hi.
This is with respect to the expiry date (28 February 2017) for Amalgamated DGPS.
I would like to try this software in a quiet place far away from my house, but it's impossible for me before February 28th !
For now i use it live with a 16 khz bandwidth
A new version will coming soon ?

Thanks in advance.

Gillis from Montreal.

Windows 10 64

Thanks for reminding me. I've made some changes to the app, so now may be a good time to release a new beta and push back the expiration date to the end of July.

Here's download links for the Mac and Windows versions. I feel pretty confident in the Mac version as I use it all the time, less so for the Windows version, I only have time to check basic functionality. So I'd appreciate it if folks could give it a try, and let me know that it works OK.

Also Gillis / Loufoque (and anyone else lurking here), we'd love to see your DGPS logs on the DGPS Logging forum! https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/board,32.0.html

I'm decoding with 1.04b1 and its about 3x slower than the previous version and the settings are the same (which means its decoding 1 second for every 1 second of recorded time). No 0.5 kHz channels, type 6 & 9 only.

Aha I think I know why... it has my very aggressive decoding settings as the default. Let me make them user selectable.

OK, new betas uploaded, same URLs. See the built in help for details on the new settings in the preferences.

Cool, thanks. I've adjusted it to 0/0/1 and running now on a subset of 6 recordings from last evening. I'm going to compare the 1.0.4b2's results for the same set (with same settings) as with the previous version.  If they look comparable, then unless the rest of the recordings on it.

Since I've not heard of any complaints, and the current version expires tomorrow, I've updated Amalgamated DGPS version 1.0.4.
