For immediate release
July 17, 2000
Timewave Technology Inc. has extended the leading edge technology that has made the DSP-599zx the #1 signal processor in HF communications. Today, you can find the DSP-599zx and its technological derivatives in commercial, government, aviation and military HF communication systems worldwide! But we didn't build a flash-in-the-pan - when the DSP-599zx was designed in 1995-96, we looked forward and created a hardware and software architecture to carry us into the next millennium. The following new features are founded on that powerful architecture.
Binaural CW enables the CW operator to use the
powerful combination of his brain and both his ears to
separate CW signals in a panorama with lower pitch signals to
the left and higher pitch signals to the right. This exclusive
feature makes CW listening easier and takes the pile out of pileups!
The CW spotlight highlights a weak signal to pull
it out of surrounding QRM, and allows a proficient CW operator
to monitor nearby CW signals while staying focused on a particular
signal. This unique feature is great for DX pileups and contests.
PC-Radio Interface and Filter for PSK-31
PSK-31 and SSTV require connection and matching
of a radio's audio input/output and transmit/receive control line
to a computer sound card and serial port. The DSP-599zx with Version
5.0 firmware performs these tasks while maintaining the ability
to perform its other signal processing tasks. You can now operate
RTTY, PSK31 and SSTV with just the DSP-599zx, a transceiver, and
a computer with appropriate software. No other interface boxes
or multi-mode controllers are required!
This new feature includes an internal reconfiguration of the signal
routing and audio level adjustments in the DSP-599zx that permits
the DSP-599zx to be connected directly to a sound card in a computer.
Noise Reduction Algorithm Modification
We've tweaked the DSP-599zx's noise reduction
algorithm for a better low end response for SWLers and improved
noise reduction over the entire range.
Morse Code Practice Oscillator
This one wasn't much of technical stretch for
our engineers, but our customers wanted it! Even 5 words per minute
takes some practice. Just plug in your key and start sending!
This is also a great way to test your new keyer off the air while
you get your fist tuned up.
The manufacturer's suggested retail price for the DSP-599zx
Version 5.0 firmware upgrade kit is $59.95.
The DSP-599zx Version 5.0 Upgrade Kit is available now from
We also offer custom cables to connnect most transceivers to the DSP-599zx and the PK-232/DSP and other TNCs.
