More smartphone PSK from the mobile, with PSKer

After I mentioned running a PSK program on my iPhone the other day, my friend Simon asked which one it was and whether it was PSKer. That was a program that I hadn’t heard of, so when I had a moment yesterday, I decided to investigate.

PSKer looks a very nice program and I decided to give it a go. When I got back to the car yesterday evening, I ran it up and set the receiver running on 28.120. There was plenty happening.

PSKer seems to decode a little easier than the Multimode program I was using the other day. I haven’t yet tried it on transmit. However, I did discover that it can be set to send tones through the speaker, rather than the earphone socket, which is what you want when you are too lazy to make up a lead!
