ToneTool 0.3.2

Submitted by rogal on Mon, 10/18/2010 - 13:39

I've released additional version of ToneTool - 0.3.2. This release fixes two bugs reported by users:

  • Morse code letter B is encoded as A
  • DTMF pause duration setting has no effect

  • Additionally you will have a nice application splashscreen and Select-5 address book.

ToneTool 0.3 beta

Submitted by rogal on Tue, 05/18/2010 - 13:47

I've just released version 0.3 of ToneTool. Major changes include:

*Addressbook for DTMF - you can create predefined sequences, store it under arbitrary name and load at any time. Nice feature to keep all your EchoLink node numbers in one place :).

*Morse code - transmit any text using morse code sequence with configurable WPM speed. This is very experimental version as many phones (especially Nokia) have brain-damaged Java implementation.

*Select5 sequence can now have up to 15 digits including pauses (',' character - pause duration is equal single tone duration time).

First APRS experiments

During development of ToneTool, I came across an idea of generating FSK sequences using mobile phone speaker. I made some experiments in generating RTTY but this turned out to be impractical - mobile phones are slow, and so is generating sinusoidal waveforms. When it comes to creating DTMF or Select-5 it's ok - you have to wait usually 0,5-1 second before sequence can be played. But RTTY transmissions can last minutes - there is no processing power nor RAM memory to create and store it. And probably no one needs RTTY transmitter limited to 160 characters ;).
