Wiki for Small World Deluxe
Hello and welcome! This project aims to provide a clean, easy-to-use GUI (i.e. graphical user interface) that matches with bleeding-edge technology on the backend in terms of the latest and greatest in available digital modulation techniques for amateur radio, such as Codec2.
Development is proceeding at a semi-rapid and continuous pace while we should have a public, alpha release available quite sometime soon, so please do check around often to stay updated!
Right now, you are viewing the Wiki that's applicable for Small World Deluxe so please feel free to navigate around and educate yourself as required on upcoming features, what's planned, how the application itself works, etc.
If you wish to make contact with the application authors directly, then please open an Issue with us and we'll be glad to offer assistance as soon as-is possible! If you wish to contribute towards the project in some way, then please, get in contact with us via the same avenues.
Small World Deluxe is constantly evolving and in a highly volatile state at the moment, due to being in such heavy development. Expect it to change rather regularly as the weeks, and even days, pass by.
Planned Features & FAQ
Is encryption on the table at some point in the future?
Because of the requirement for general amateur radio use and the need to follow the law in countries around the world, we cannot allow for such features as encryption or anything that will mask the 'contents' of the signal and prevent easy decoding, given the right tools. Please check the local laws and/or charters that apply to you, thank you.
Which digital modulation techniques do you currently have planned for implementation?
At the moment, we have an implementation of Codec2 in heavy development as well as
FT8. We also wish to implement
WSPR as soon as possible too, given time constraints. By which we mean, we desire the implementation of at least one modulation technique firstly before making an alpha release of Small World Deluxe to the public at large.
Is (Digital) SSTV going to be implemented?
It sure will! With the help of
Codec2, in particular, so you'll be able to send images of any desired size over great distances, digitally, via amateur radio.
