go2MONITOR: Extend it with third party decoders (for FAX, SSTV, HELL etc.)

ometimes protocols are not (yet) implemented into go2MONITOR because of:

  • no demand from customers
  • experimental codes
  • protocol is outdated
  • missing standards
  • coming later...

If you can not wait until a protocol is implemented or if the required know-how to implement it is not available, then then you may add it yourself (using the DDL) or a 3rd party product

This gives you the possibility to decode additional standards like:

  • SYNOP + SHIP
  • IEC 870-5
  • NWR SAME
  • DominoF / DominoEX
  • ARQ FAE
  • JT65 (A B and C)
  • LENTUS
  • FELD HELL, FM HELL(105-245), PSK HELL, HELL 80
  • HF FAX
  • SSTV, PSK SSTV, MFSK16 SSTV
  • etc.

How to route the audio from the go2MONITOR DDC channel to another software product:

  • Install VAC (Virtual Audio Cable) or another product that simulates an virtual sound card
  • Setup the VAC as the default sound card
  • Recommended VAC settings
    • SR: 22050 ... 500000
    • BPS: 8 ... 32
    • NC: 1 ... 2
    • Maxinst: 20
    • Mspe int: 10
    • Stream fmt: Cable range
    • Connected source: Line
    • Clockcorr: 100%
  • In the third party software select VAC as the input
  • Enable audio output in the go2MONITOR channel (if required, you can add an dedicated optimized audio demodulator setting to the AudioDemodTypes.xml)
  • Now your additional software is connected to the go2MONITOR channel
  • Start decoding with your third party tool

Products tested with go2MONITOR:

  • JAERO (INMARSAT AERO decoder)
  • CW Skimmer
  • MIXW
  • MUTIPSK
  • W-CODE
  • W-61PC
  • PDW Paging Decoder (in go2MONITOR select the FM-output and in PDW the dicriminator input)
  • ....
