Zakanaka, a digital mode decoding and terminal program written by Bob Furzer, K4CY. Bob is also the author of Logger, a logging program with a PSK31 decoding and terminal module that runs under Windows 95/98, Windows 2000, and Windows NT
Was originally intended to decode PSK31, RTTY, and CW. During November 2000, K4CY added RTTY capability to Zakanaka by incorporating the RTTY engine of MMTTY, which was written by Makoto Mori, JE3HHT, into Zakanaka. This changed Zakanaka from a PSK31 program to a PSK31 and RTTY program
Zakanaka includes new and powerful software tools. It can decode three signals simultaneously, and gives radio amateurs information that they can use to help themselves and other amateur radio operators to improve their equipment, adjustments, and operating procedures. Zakanaka exchanges information with Logger, resulting in
· One-click entry of callsigns for use in logging and in macros.
· Presentation of frequency information on the Zakanaka Display (requires a radio that communicates with Logger over the serial port).
· Automatic entry of data from the Zakanaka Rx screen to Logger.
Zakanaka uses the encoding/decoding engine of the MMTTY program to operate RTTY. This program was written by Makoto Mori, JE3HHT, and we express our thanks for permission to use this software. If you need a copy of this program, please go to the link shown below in the section on internet links.
