More Filters, Better Filters, Automatic selection
The PK-232SC+ brick wall filters have tighter bandwidth and steeper skirts for improved noise and QRM rejection. New PK-232 firmware (Ver. 7.2) allows a wider selection of filters than the original PK-232, so the filter can match the mode. The correct DSP filter is automatically selected when you choose an internal mode. In RTTY, Timewave’s proven Twin Peak Filters pluck the mark and space tones from the noise and QRM for great copy. In PACTOR, the filter bandwidth automatically changes when the baud rate shifts in response to the error rate of the link. In Morse (CW), the operator can preset either 100 Hz or 200 Hz bandwidth. The PK-232SC+ is compatible with all Windows W2K,XP,Vista/Win7 software terminal programs for the PK-232.
Sound Card Interface and Rig Control
For maximum flexibility, Sound Card / TNC switching is both software and panel switch controlled. The sound card mode selection is software controlled. For example, when operating with Radio Operating Center software, changing to PSK31 from Pactor or MT63 is a simple menu click.
The single USB cable from your PC also moves your logic level Kenwood RX/TX/RTS/CTS, Yaesu CAT, and Icom CIV and USB Rig Control interface to the back panel of your PK-232SC.
All the Proven Modes + All the Sound Card Modes
The PK-232SC+ supports all the new sound card modes in addition to all of the existing PK-232 modes – Pactor, VHF/ HF Packet, AMTOR/SITOR, Baudot, ASCII, Morse, HF Weather FAX, TDM, and NAVTEX.
The PK-232/PSK comes with a complete cable and connector set in addition to Timewave’s on-line and telephone support. As always, you can upgrade any PK-232 ever built to the latest PK-232SC+!
