HOME TS-590SG TS-590S COMMON OTHER SOFTWARE OTHER HARDWARE MISCELLANEOUS FEEDBACK MORE G3NRW SITES

Updated 13 June 2017

The TS-590 Family Resources Page …………….. g3nrw.net/TS-590

 

Two major changes to the site since last time:
  • Added a comprehensive list of Digital Communications Software to the OTHER SOFTWARE section. In addition to the four well-known “heavy lifting” packages (DXLab, Fldigi, MultiPSK and WSJT), there are descriptions and links to more than 20 other packages including: AGWPE, ALE, ARDop, BPQ32, DBLog, DigiPan, Dire Wolf, EasyPacket, EasyPal, FreeDV, FSQdigital, JNOS, MixW, MMSSTV, MMTTY, PROPnet, PSKMail, PuTTY, QSSTV, SIM31/SIM63, UIchat, UI-View and WSQ. A huge collection of software talent!
    If you can think of any other packages to add to the list, please let me know.
  • Removed the TS-590SG “HOW MANY?” section. Over the last 6 weeks just 8 people from the whole wide world submitted the serial number of their rig to be added to the table and chart! Now, I find it difficult to believe that Kenwood only sold 8 TS-590SGs over the past 6 weeks, and consequently I’m sure the figures in the “HOW MANY?” section grossly understated the actual numbers sold — perhaps by a factor of 10, or even more? Bottom line: the data in this section was very misleading and I submit not really of any use to anyone.
As always, I welcome any new links to documents, slide presentations, YouTube videos, hardware, software etc. that will be of interest to TS-590SG and TS-590S owners, for posting on the TS-590 Family Resources Page. Also, let me know of files you have posted to the “Files” section on the two reflectors, and I will be happy to add links to them on the Resources Page.
I frequently receive requests for information on a wide range of topics. I can help with some of them, but with others all I can suggest is looking back through the reflector archives. Incidentally, a hint for people posting messages on the reflectors: please choose a meaningful Subject line (for example, “AGC Setup”). This makes it easier for others looking for a particular topic. A thread simply titled “Help” or “Question” isn’t very informative and risks being ignored!
Last time I mentioned a new program I am working on to decode ARCP backup files. A bare-bones version is working fine, but the user interface is very, ahem, quaint — think DOS command line!  A modern GUI version, with easy file selection and buttons to select various options, is going through final testing, and with luck should be ready for release next month.
