irmc - Internet Relay Morse Code
How to build?
Install dependency: morse keyer library
wget https://github.com/8cH9azbsFifZ/morse/archive/v0.1.tar.gz tar xzf v0.1.tar.gz cd morse-0.1 libtoolize ./autogen.sh ./configure --with-portaudio make sudo make install
Some dependencies have to be installed:
apt-get install -y alsa-oss oss-compat build-essential autoconf libao-dev libtool
Afterwards compilation with
make should work. If something went wrong, you may have
to adjust your
LD_LIBRARY_PATH. Alternatively try:
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib ./irmc mtc-kob.dyndns.org 7890 33 123
Compilation with make :)
For the USB serial devices you need a PL2303 driver (i.e. PL2303_Serial-USB_on_OSX_Lion.pkg).
./irmc morsecode.dyndns.org 7890 2348 test
Or you may want to use tcpdump, i.e.:
sudo tcpdump -i all -vvvv "host faeroes.sdf.org"
How to use:
The usage is:
irmc [hostname] [port] [channel] [id] [serialport
For example: `./irmc mtc-kob.dyndns.org 7890 103 MyID /dev/tty.usbserial´
Hardware interface options
A good description on how to build differnt interfaces (telegraph key, sounder or both) is given on the MorseKOB Website. Landline telegraphs use "closed circuits" for communications; if you have built one at home, you may also use the loop interface.

There are few difference between this and the official cwcom client
- It is a command line tool
- It does not send the characters of the message to the receivers screen.
- It does not translate CW for you. You can try fldigi if you just want see the transmission.
- Tone pitch is currently hard coded to 650Hz
- It does not have a way to show you who is listening.
This is experimental code.
