DigiPan Download Page

A Freeware Program for PSK31 and PSK63

DigiPan stands for “Digital Panoramic Tuning” and brings the ease and simplicity of PANORAMIC reception and transmission to PSK31and PSK63 operation. DigiPan provides a panoramic display of the frequency spectrum in the form of an active dial scale extending the full width of the computer screen. Depending upon the transceiver IF bandwidth, it is possible to “see” as many as 40 to 50 PSK31 stations at one time. Low-cost transceiver kits for 10 meters, 20 meters, 30 meters, 40 meters, and 80 meters, the PSK-10, PSK-20, PSK-30, PSK-40, and Warbler (PSK-80), are available from  Small WonderLabs that make full use of DigiPan’s panoramic capabilities through the use of a 3000 Hz wideband IF. An article about DigiPan and the panoramic transceiver can be found starting on page 33 of the June, 2000, QST magazine. Other information about PSK31, including a downloadable copy of the article, is currently available for members from the ARRLTechnical Information Service.

DigiPan1.0 forever changed how PSK31 tuning was done, from manually tuning the transceiver, to “point-and-click” mouse tuning, in which a signal on the waterfall is clicked with the mouse button to find out the station’s callsign and decide whether or not to contact that station…

Now, DigiPan 2.0 again changes how PSK31 tuning is done!

All stations on the waterfall are now simultaneously decoded, and the callsign and text of each station is continuously shown on a separate multichannel display. CQ calls are instantly highlighted in color, and color alerts for any other two strings of text are also available. Since the callsign and text of each station is already known, instead of clicking on a signal to identify and contact a station, just clicking on the text or callsign of the desired station will transfer it to the active Receive area for a contact.

Download DigiPan 2.0 (700K)

Digipan 2.0 works best on a 266 MHz or faster Pentium processor and requires Windows 95 or greater

If you experience slowness in downloading, or problems in installing DigiPan 2.0, download this zipped version: digipan20.zip

If you find that your computer is too slow using DigiPan 2.0, DigiPan 1.7 is still available: digipan7.zip

Before installing any new version of DigiPan, or reinstalling an older one, first quit any running version of DigiPan, locate digipan.ini in the Windows directory (folder), delete digipan.ini, and then install DigiPan. You can also follow this procedure if DigiPan does not seem to be working correctly anymore. After any reinstallation, you will have to re-configure your personal data and any custom macros.

Crescenta Valley Radio Club is an organization over half a century old. Our members are amateur radio operators who share interests in radio and service to our community. Members help new members starting the hobby as well as helping other members with technical and operational problems of getting on the air. We keep ourselves up to date with the technological changes by inviting expert speakers to our meetings. CVRC closely supports GEARS (Glendale Emergency Auxiliary Radio). Many members are in both organizations and have provided communications for an emergency at Glendale Memorial Hospital, and with Cruise Night, the Montrose Christmas Parade, and various local themed running events. We meet once a month on the second Thursday of the month at USC Verdugo Hills Hospital at 7:00PM. Every Sunday we hold two nets. On our 445.680 repeater, we hold the No Chit Chat net at 7:50PM, and at 8:00PM, we switch to our 146.025 repeater for the Whats Going On Net. Both repeaters are located on top of Mount Thom and share use the city's antenna tower. Their power is backed up by both batteries and an emergency generator. We have several annual events. In June, we participate in the National Field Day by setting up several stations in Verdugo Park and operating completely "off the grid". Every August we have a barbecue in Crescenta Valley Park with a Fox Hunt activity where the members try to locate a hidden transmitter. When December comes around we come together for a traditional holiday dinner.
