Yeap, I was talking about HF. AFAIK, Joe's software is just for VHF/UHF
(meteor scatter and EME) although I imagine it could be used on HF.

Yes, that is New Zealand. However, MFSK's roots are with Picolo, which was
developed in Great Britian during WW2. MFSK16 was first coded into
software by IZ8BLY (an italian) although I believe Murry certainly
contributed to the design.

But neither of them are U.S. hams.
