What is QsoNet?
QsoNet is a new system which uses the internet to receive audio signals from a ham radio transmitting station, then instantly reflects the audio back to all stations listening on that frequency.  The result is a simulated ionosphere for worldwide amateur radio communication.
How does it work?
QsoNet works with dialup, DSL and cable internet connections. There is no need to configure router ports. The network consists of an array of internet servers which provide streaming voip audio between stations. After installing transceiver software, QsoNet stations are connected to a central server by a single, outbound TCP connection.
What are the rules?
The use of QsoNet is restricted to licensed amateur radio operators (hams). Operators are expected to use normal radio procedure – For example:

  1. Identify your callsign frequently.
  2. Always be courteous and respectful. Do not use a frequency that is already in use.
  3. Do not use voice on the CW portions of the bands.
  4. Do not engage in commercial activity. No advertising.
  5. Do not transmit music.

What is CQ100?
CQ100 is the first software transceiver designed for communication over the QsoNet system.

Features and Specifications:

  • Covers 5 HF radio bands – 80, 40, 20, 15 and 10 meter bands.
  • Computer microphone provides voice modulation.
  • CW mode is achieved by typing on the keyboard, or by “line-in” on computer sound card.
  • Band scope shows radio activity within a settable sweep range of 50, 100, 200 and 500 kHz.
  • Callsign, handle, QTH, etc are automatically displayed for current transmitting station.
  • Keyboard “Hot Keys” and “Annunciate Mode” provide a simple interface for vision impaired operators.
