    Hi all,

    I need a tester for a new digital mode.

    With Icom Rig + CAT 9600 bps and the TeamViewer software working.

    Many thanks

  3. Whiskey Tequila Says:

    I’m glad to have a frequency where no ROS almost no interference. Back when 27,245 was impossible for noise, we met in the 27,500 to communicate in other digital modes, of all countries.

      Now we can use the 27,635 all together and enhance the intercom for two factors: one is that the new frequency is cleaner and the other that are not diluted at three frequencies or all stuffed into one where there are only operators of CB on AM and FM, phony as doing for decades. We will test the new frequency enthusiastically. So far it sounds very clean, at least much better than the other three previous frequencies. Regards and thanks for the updates! 73.

  4. Ham Radio Says:

    Tnx Jose for special “on line support ” you’re a big ROS boss!

    73 Luca, iw2cxj

  5. Ham Radio Says:

    Hola! Tengo un problema con mi nuevo FT 1200 no se puede conectar el CAT, el programa siempre me dice que cerrar Ham Radio Deluxe …..
    Utilice el mismo cable USB/RS 232 que funciona con otros radio en ROS,
    usted puede ayudar?


    Gracias google traductor!…..Gracias a José!

  6. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    I have no notices about Win 8.1 and ROS at the moment

  7. Richard White Says:

    Guess others are using ROS on Win 8.1 without problem? Same setup receives other modes ok.

  8. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    Sorry, i have no idea

  9. Richard White Says:

    Hi Jose, I have an Asus netbook with Windows 8.1 Load ROSv7.2.5 ok. Transmits ok but rx wont or rarely decode; Any clues? (Audio ok tx and rx.). Richard.

  10. ANTONIO Says:

    Non si riesce a scaricare l’ultima versione 7.2.5 da un errore sulla sicurezza, SSL, ho provato in diversi PC e con diversi Browser, stesso risultato. Non è la prima volta che il server da dove si scarica da questo errore, ma questa volta non fa scaricare assolutamente.
    Qualcuno puo’ fare qualcosa????

    Grazie e 73 da IT9IVE ANTONIO

  19. Alberto J. Mesquita Says:

    Albierto, necessitamos urgentemente desenvolver o Ros Modem para plataforma Linux.
    Tenho andado afastado por motivo de não utilizar o Windows, e creio que muitos que utilizam o Linux gostariam de estar aqui trabalhando seus contatos.
    Mesquita – PP6AJM

  20. Alex Says:

    Antetodo dar la enhorabuena por este modo digital, es brutal!
    para cuando el OPERA para Linux? seria muy buena opcion poderlo instalar en una Raspberry Pi, daria partido a unos cuantos experimentos y muchos usuarios de Linux nos alegrariamos poderlo utilizarlo.


  21. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    Antes te aparecía esta:

  22. Jesus Says:

    He revisado la IP pública de mi conexión y aparece como telefónica de España, ¿cual es la IP de USA que te aparece a ti?

  23. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    Tu IP me sale que es de USA. Algo falla.

  24. Jesus Says:

    Pero yo soy español y resido en españa, cual es el problema?
    Gracias y saludos.

  25. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    Habla entonces con la ARRL. Desde US no se puede utilizar este programa.

  26. Jesus Says:

    Hola José Alberto, tengo problemas cuando abro el programa me sale el mensaje de que no se pudo registrar o sale el mensaje de que la ARRL no permite su uso y se cierra el programa. Gracias

  27. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    some bugs fixed along the time

  28. Lars Says:

    What’s new in this version? 7.2.0?

  29. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    try now

  30. Luís Garcia CS7AEL - PT Says:

    ” …your registration could not be completed due to internet connection “… what’s happening????

  31. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    Será cosa de configuración. Si conoces a alguien que tenga esa emisora que se acerque a tu casa y te ayude a configurarlo.

  32. pablo Says:

    hola jose alberto
    en mi ft-897 no funciona la version 7.1.9 hay que cambiar algun parametro del equipo

  33. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    Hello Mr Ron,

    You should configure Spot Menu

  34. Ron. Says:

    Hello Mr Jose Alberto,

    No i am not confused, some of the guys have tried it and it seems to work!! in 2 and 7 mode. And why are the other frequencies shielded from showing? In the beginning we all could see whats was going on, now we only see the 11 meter band..

  35. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    Hi Ron,

    Maybe you are confused. ROS MF modes were designed according features of LF and MF bands (Doppler spread delay and coherence time), not appropiate below 80 meters band, much less 11 meters band.


  36. Ron. Says:

    Hi Mr.Jose Alberto,
    Why are we (11 meter users) limited in the opportunities of the program? When i take a look under skeds we are most of the time the biggest group online, and yet we are limited? We also whant to use 2 and 7 mode ROS and we want to see the others on frequencie line, not only 11 meters. We also testing the software from North to South and from West to East.
    I hope that we get a fair and just answer,

    73`s the 19PG149 Ron.

  37. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    Pues ni idea Román

  38. Román Leal Says:

    Hola José Alberto, después de formatear el ordenador he instalado la última version de Ros 7.1.9 y no se inicia el programa me sale el siguiente error:
    Run-time error ‘50003’ unexpected error.
    He vuelto ha bajar el Ros varias veces e instalado varias veces y me sigue dando el error, antes de formatear no he tenido ningun problema todo funcionaba bien.
    En espera de tus noticias Saludos desde Yecla.

  39. Wolfgang Says:

    Hi José Alberto,

    many thanks for your nice work…
    It is a great piece of HAM-software
    73! Wolfgang

  40. Wolfgang Says:

    Hi José Alberto,

    It works now, it seems there was a problem with the WEB or maybe with your server….
    73! Wolfgang

  41. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    try now Wolfgang


  42. Wolfgang Says:

    Hi José Alberto,

    Installing ROS 7.1.9 I get always “Your registration could not be completed….” and I can not enter the the GUI.
    Internet connection is there – I even see the messages coming in at the left upper corner. Do I have to open some ports for make it work?
    73! Wolfgang (DG7RJ)

  43. Ladislav OK1UNL/qrp Says:

    Hi José Alberto.
    Predefined freq. 7040.0MHz is not a good idea. this one freq. is acentre of PSK mode in Eu. So QRM from PSK stns has a high level.
    Originally PSK freq. were 7.035MHz.

  44. Vadim Says:

    Dear Hose!
    Im have little problem with Signalink USB
    In BPSK, RTTY, JT-65 programms he is work OK, aber in ROS
    not stay on TX! Soundcard choise is correct USB Audio Codec, RIG – VOX. Help me please. Im like your Programm!

  45. Mario Says:

    Por mi trabajo y mis aficiones a la Radio, al 4×4 no me puedo dar el lujo de solo usar un OS. Es demasiado estrecho, greagario y/o privativo. No tengo problemas en usar lo mejor de las diferentes ofertas existentes pues no hay pasiones ni recelos ocultos en ello. Si me sirve lo uso, si no, no y listo. Si para usar ROS tengo que usar Windows….hago switch y listo ! No me pongo obstaculos ! Sumar fuerzas es la idea.

  46. Ladislav OK1UNL Says:

    Sorry, but I am fully agree with Jose Alberto Nieto Ros opinions.
    ROS offers a lot of features, which hardly you can find in other hamradio software.
    Very easy Remote Control, site communication over Internet especially good for SWL etc…..
    Try it consistently and you will see…
    73! Lada OK1UNL/qrp

  47. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    As ROS is an exotic mode not worth waste of time with others OS

  48. engink Says:

    i’m both linux user and ham radio operator. i don’t want to use ms
    windows for ros operation. will you release source code or native linux port? i cant use it with winehq, it crashes at startup.

  49. Mario Says:

    Tks, José. now all it is ok ! 73 !

  50. Peter Says:

    Hello José,
    today (22 June) I tried it again and it still got registration error.
    Then I have checked my Firewall and recognized that ROS tries to reach and After I opened both IP-Port-Combinations it worked.
    Peter, DG8NBP

  51. Gordon. Says:

    Same for me too , Gordon , g4EBF .

  52. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    Prueba a cerrar el archivo .adi

  53. Mario Says:

    Saludos Jose Alberto. Al cambiar a la nueva versión de ROS, presiono el botón ADIF y aparece una ventanita que dice: ” Run time error ´55´: File already open”. Le das OK y se cierra el programa completo y hay que volver a arrancarlo. Todo funciona bien siempre y cuando no se presione el boton ADIF. Saludos José y ya estamos probando Opera de mas wattaje a menos Vs. Australia y Argentina, vamos muy bien. 73 ! Mario 10AD707

  54. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    Hello Peter, try again

  55. Peter Says:

    Hi José,
    today I switch to a new computer, installed ROS and get a registration after starting ROS: “Your registration could not be completed due to no internet connection”. Have you any idea, what I can do?
    Best regards
    Peter, DG8NBP

  56. Luca Says:

    Well Alberto,now all ok, bad (original!) audio W7 driver in my netbook …
    Tnx de Luca Iw2cxj, ciao!

  57. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:


    what is exactly the problem with the ports?

  58. Luca Says:

    Buongiorno José, ho un piccolo problema da porti, per motivi di spazio ho deciso di comprare un netbook Acer aspire one 722 con W7. La scheda audio è una Conexant ed ho problemi a decodificare ROS…. Ho provato numerosi settnig della scheda ma nulla da fare, Mi puoi aiutare?

    Grazie, Luca Iw2cxj

  59. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    Ok, prueba con el modelo TS570DG

  60. Juan Antonio Says:

    Hola Jose Alberto, tengo el Kenwood TS-570D de las primeras unidades que salieron, y un Sound card adapter 2001 de Astro radio, pero no consigo que me arranque desde Cat, tengo que detectarla desde COM RTS+DTR, asi me funciona bien

  61. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    Hola Juan, ¿que modelo de 570D tienes?

  62. Juan Antonio Says:

    El programa va genial, aunque el indicador de cpu no me funciona, y tampoco puedo controlar por cat al Kenwood ts570d, por lo demas chapeau, me gusta sobre todo los reportes de los anuncios por internet de todos los que estan en escucha y obviamente conectados a internet, asi puedes saber si te reciben o no, una maravilla, el ros supera con creces a cualquier programa de transmision digital, felicitaciones al programador.

  63. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    Hello Laurent, you must active internet in order register can be done. Only USA Hams cannot be registered.

  64. Laurent F4GLP Says:

    Hello José, Thank you for the software ROS!

    NB: on the previous versions the software worked without the PC is connected to internet. Since the version 7.17 I have the message “your registration could not be completed to not internet connection ” then the software closes…

    Please, I shall like I can again use this mode without being on WEB
    In advance thank you. 73!

  65. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    good idea, but difficult to implement ROS in a PIC because of FEC mixing with interlaving and mixing with frequency changes.

    Also, for UHF direct path communications a simple RTTY mode is enought. ROS only take sense on HF or MF.

  66. Sebastian, SP6RYD Says:

    Please see the projects of stratospheric balloons where miniature transmitter sends the position of the balloon in the UHF band. I’am looking for the ability to send short message with extremely low power (a few mW) which may indicate the need for error correcting codes. Due to the carrier frequency drift I’am wondering if ROS receiver cant catch that. The transmitter and receiver clock are not synchronized. The transmiter is not connected to the Internet any how. I think we can make a trial test other than RTTY or DominoEX transmit methods. ROS is know for extremely low power budget. It is also resistant, I believe, to change frequency, group delay etc. For now, this is purely theoretical considerations.

  67. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:


    Better try Opera Mode for a Beacon

  68. SP6RYD Says:

    Is it somehow possible to implement ROS in the microcontroller in order to build a small QRP beacon (transmission only). Do ROSmodem protocol is published and available to the public, such as, for example, WSRP?

  69. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    ok, i will do it

  70. Carsten Hirt Says:

    Hi José!
    I upgraded my licence type and have a new callsign now.
    My old callsign DO6CH in the donate list is expired.
    Please change it to my new callsign DL6CH or delete it as you like.

  72. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    problem with server

  73. Ladislav OK1UNL Says:

    After 1month my inactivity ROS mode today open me sw ROS 7.1.7
    Comming message “your registration could not be completed due to not internet connection” but spots comming OK and this service requires internet connection. Where is a mistake????
    73! Ladislav OK1UNL

  74. Gorm Helt-Hansen Says:

    I have done nothing at all and now it is working.
    For me it is a strange, unsolved case. But ok – as long it works, I’m happy.
    If I disconnect the internet ROS starts up working, but naturally without the information bars. So I can not make it fail the same way as it did the last two days, even without the internet connection.
    But anyway..
    Thanks for your time and your help.

    73 de Gorm / OZ6GH.

  75. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    then should be OK.

    Test if you have a firewall cutting ROS Server conextions

  76. Gorm Helt-Hansen Says:

    Hi José
    I downloaded ROS 11-04 at 11:20 UTC

    73 Gorm / OZ6GH.

  77. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    Gorm, when did you download ROS last time?

  78. Gorm Helt-Hansen Says:

    Hi José
    This error started after ROS has worked perfectly since this version was ready for download. I have tried to download ROS again, removed the old directory and installed the new downloaded file in a new directory. That didn’t help.
    The same happened with the former version of ROS. It then helped by installing the new version – it worked since it was released, but I now have the problem again.
    I belive that if a new version is released, I can use ROS for some time again until the same problem occur once more.
    But why am I restricted to a relative short time working with ROS for every new version?
    At the moment it is impossible for me to work ROS.
    73 de Gorm / OZ6GH.

  79. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    Config your internet firewall, or try download ROS again

  80. Gorm Helt-Hansen Says:

    When I try to start ROS a textbox is popping up saying: “Your registration could not be completed due to no internet connection” and when I click on ‘OK’ the program terminates.
    What can I do to make the program work, pse??

  81. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    Ésto es lo que hay ahora mismo en el CLUSTER. ¿donde están esos cientos de spots que tanto te molestan?

    Hi José,
    I have a problem with using a special event callsign EI13CLAN in ROS. When I try to save the QSO via ADIF I get an Error “Adif, your callsign is wrong”

    Is there any way to fix this?

    Many thanks for great software

  85. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    Hello Viktor,

    Last version need to be registered in order to filter USA

    Sorry for the inconvenience

  86. Viktor Says:

    Hola Jose,

    I am using ROS since version 6.5.1. I always kept it up to date. After the release of the recent v 7.1.7 I’ve noticed that a different number of QSOs were decoded by using v7.1.3 compared to v7.1.7 – why? For that reason I want to install ROS 7.1.7 on a Laptop without internet connection, but it simply does not work. Any idea how to overcome this problem?

    Best regards,

  87. Robert Says:

    Great digimode, but will you ever distribute ROS as free software?
    This would surely fasten up the development of this mode and quality, too. And btw it could be a platform independent piece of software.

    best regards Robert

    Un abrazo .Juan 73 ( LU4FT Rosario Argentina )

  89. Rama Says:

    gracias. solucionado el tema. la nueva version del antivirus avast al detectar el puerto de coneccion lo cierra solo. antiguamente no lo hacia, pero parece que han cambiado el motor del antivirus. con desconectar el antivirus, habrir el ros y volver a poner el antivirus salio andando de maravilla. un abrazo a todos.

  90. Diaz Juan Jose Says:

    Rama ,b.dia ,mira estoy pensando si tal vez puede ser el cortafuegos del antivirus que se seteo negando al programo ROS la salida de internet ,para pbar,esto desconecta el cortafuegos o el antivirus unos minutos y Pba. otra cosa no se me ocurre y suerte .

    si, es correcto, cuando no tengo internet lo hace, pero esta vez esta conectado a internet y sigue con el mismo problema, como que no registrara la coneccion a internet que tiene y luego se cierra. mientras tanto el opera funciona muy bien. solo con el ros me pasa. espero poder solucionarlo ya que lo uso mucho. gracias por la respuesta.

  92. Diaz Juan Jose Says:

    Rama ,b.dia , te comento q’ lo mismo me sucede a mo estoy conectado a internet ,supongo que el programa chequea que la persona que lo esta utilizando este registrada ,pero al estar disponible la web ese problema no me la hace.

    No habrá ningún video en youtube o Vimeo para verlo.
    Bueno amigo, a ver si se te ocurre algo para que pueda acceder a la radio a través de tu programa.

    hola José Alberto, llevo una semana peleándome con el programa y no termino de en tenderlo:
    1/ no soy capaz de conexionar, programa con la radio, seguro que es una tontería pero estoy atascado.
    2/ En digital se habla normalmente o es solo comunicación por el Chat?
    3/ no me funciona en ningún modo CAT, COM etc.
    En fin que estoy echo un lío. dime si hay un manual para torpes y donde encontrarlo
    Perdona mi chapa, pero estoy muy ilusionado en entrar en lo digital, además si es de casa mejor.

    Hi Jose,

    I have installed ROS 7.16, my RIG is Icom IC-7410. So far it works great, it’s just that I am not comfortable with the default settings SSB Data mode, I always switch to SSB to get good reception. I hope the default setting for SSB Data mode on ICOM IC-7410 deactivated.

    Ron 19PG149

  111. Mario Says:

    Well……….now we are on 27.610 MHz in ROS.
    Nice frequency, no problem for “Las Americas”.
    Finally 27.500 it is free for narrow modes and 27.610 is ready for ROS mode.
    We just test it and we make some excelents Dx today ! Thanks for oportunity to use ROS on 27 Mhz. See you on 27.610 !!! Hasta la vista !


  112. Ron Says:

    I made contakt to Eric (9FDX075) a few times now,its verry nice to talk to him and others.
    Thats point that he mentioned about ussing all of the frequencie is wat i was trying to say.(tnx Eric)
    I think still that 27.510 is a good frequencie for Ros,nearby other digital frequencies.


  113. Mario Says:

    Eric 9FDX057 talk to me today in 27.500 and he say we are making total use of 27.500 in ROS using all usable water fall. So we going to make a research for a good frecuency for Americans from Canada to Argentina. I going to ask every one of the DIGI-friends and look for a good frecuency for us. ROS is growing like beer foam and it is excelent ! So ….lets try, lets try !

    Mario 10AD707

  114. Mario Says:

    Tnx fot the answer, Ron:

    May be, may be……the only one problem i see is the “dissolution”. If we divide our selves, the possibilities of contact are reduced ! We are very few ! Always the same 40 guys on frequency: 4 from Canada, 4 from Germany, 6 from France, 4 from British islands, 4 from Spain 3 from Italy, 1 from Argentina, 1 from Uruguay, 1 from Brasil, 4 from Mexico, 2 from Australia, 1 from Indonesia and 4 from USA … more, We know each other very well !! And never you going to see 3 communications at same time on 27.500
    Here in 27.500 we do Olivia 8/250, RTTY45, BPSK31, ROS, even SSTV !!!, Hell Scriber, etc…….. No problem because the frequency it is practically desert :-( We must try to be together to increase the possibilities in frequencies with out regional interference and every body is going to be happy. Do not put us in different frequencies, please ! We need to be together and if and only if we saturate 27.500 then we can do a split : narrow modes here an the other modes there…… Please,lets try to be together in the beginning and when we look like 28.120 MHz then lets star to think in splits. BTU Ron.

  115. Ron Says:

    Mario,tnx for the answer.
    It is not that i dont like ROS, i use it myzelf and i am happy with this mode.
    But what is the problem to take it to 27.510 ? everybody happy i think.
    Why must men take the channel for DX psk and other digital modes and where several calls can make a qso on the same time,i dont think that can with ROS.
    So put it on 27.510 and its nearby and we all can enjoy the hobby.


    Ron 19PG149

  116. Mario Says:

    Ron: I know you are trying to set some order in 27 MHz and it is a great idea. Please, you must take information about all especific regions in the entire World for a better settings of frequencies. What it the needs in South Pacific ? Asia ? Canada ? USA ? Latin America ? Africa ? Rusia ? Europe ? So we goning to use more frequencies to cover all needs in the world. Here, Ron, in this area of World, from Alaska to Argentina 27.695 it is a Contact frequency in LSB. This guys use a very powerful amplifiers and roger beeps, noises, toys, etc. And every time i try ROS in USB on 27.695, they come like killer bees and put a hell of noise all time. 27.245 it is CH25 for voice service in USA and they do AM, USB and LSB all time, day and night and you know they are very well armed too. So this frequencies may be good for you area but not for this Continet.
    Here, 27.500 it almost desert. We have not problems of saturation. We want to see pepople doing digital modes there, from 2,000 Hz wide or less….no problem for us. Please consider put this frequency for “Las Americas” in you chart. Thanks very much for your attention.


  117. Ron. Says:

    Yeah sure why not on tripple 5,there are so many listning on that frequencie that ROS will get the attention it needs

    Hi guys,

    Last thing i heard that ROS whas not allowed to be used in the USA,or is it changed? and the other thing is that try to received ROS when there are many stations calling with ROS,only the strongest will be heard!
    I am a ROS user to ,but on its own frequencie and not on the frequencie where i hunt for DX stations in psk.
    What whas the problem to set the frequencie for ROS on 27.510?

    great idea, used it now for sometime on 27.500 mhz usb,because its the digital frequencie,there are not so many stations yet,but i made a connection with a french station. I will give it a try to see if anyone responds to me in ROS,keep up the good Work.

    greetings the 19PG149 Ron

    Still the same Ron: …on 27.500 there are not so many stations but lets try ! This is another opportunity to improve our contacts ! Lets do it ! Lets use ROS like others use Olivia 8/250 in 27.500. Thanks very much and Hasta la vista, Ron. 73

    ROS it is a digital mode too !!! or not ?

    We here in Canada, USA, Mexico, Central America and South America use 27.500 for modes like BPKS31, Olivia 8/250, RTTY45, and now we use ROS ! Thanks very much, again, for inclusion and for adjust the software to the real use and not tue use to the software. This inclusion must be usefull for operator in America as continet and now we can participate in ROS MODE DAY´s to be really World Wide.

    We have not problems for saturation on 27.500….we wish ! but nop ! Here we are a few guys using psk31, ROS and Olivia but what we want here is have more user,more operators !!! more digital users !!! If we want more contacts we need to adjust our realities to realities of other operator in other Countries around the entire world and then try to contact them. The secret for growing it is the inclusion not the exclusion. 27.500 it is like desert ready to be used in this part of world. Put you station in this area and you will see the same thing we see. Here in 27.500 we are only a few bounch of guys ……no more. i like to see 27.500 like 28.120 with a lot of pepole in contact ! a live frecuency !!! Thanks for this and Hasta la vista !!!


  123. Ron. Says:

    Hello Ron,

    I put the calling frequencies where Hams are using ROS. Explain then to 10AD707 why he TX ROS on 27500, not me

    Is this a serious answer? is it so simple? nothing to do with other users, i made for years now contakt on 27.500 in digital modes,same as all the other countrys all over the world and now because some one ask to put 27.500 as frequencie for ROS it has to be done.
    Put it on 27.510 or so but not on a international calling frequencie for digital modes.
    I hope you see the point that i mean,

    Ron. 19PG149 ERC 195

  124. Mario Says:

    Thank you for including the frequency 27,500. Seriously they are very grateful for thinking of all of the Americas. I respect the position of European operators that use the frequencies allowed in their respective countries but in America, as a continent, we have many years using 27,500 and other frequencies, within 11 meters without legal problems as well as authorities I have always allowed to have no other assignment for them and allow their use by us, called mtristas eleven. Since ROS frequencies established as 27,245 and 27,695 for use frequently, I tried like crazy, use no success but I can say that I have made ​​many enemies in trying it here, on this continent, these frequencies are for use by telephony and Americans use 500watts amps up and not let anything there, is the law of the strongest! So I appreciate the inclusion of this frequency (27,500) as an option for this robust software and I hope to keep in touch with the guys from Europe who “sag” usually by this frequency. Thank you very much again and I want to add that in America we have 27,500 in density can be seen, say, in the 28,120, in 10 meters ….. even close! The 27,500 is very little digital transmission and in fact would be a huge pleasure to see some saturation there. If we can saturate the width of that frequency would be wonderful, but I doubt it because in 27 MHz not so many users and achieve. Besides the stroke of ROS is a path very friendly and nothing interfering in bandwidth, from a distance.

    Thank you and continued success. Thanks for making something more Uiniversal ROS!

    Hello Mr. Jose Alberto Nieto Ros,
    Why did you put the callingfrequencie for Digital modes on the ROS list? 27.500 is for the other modes, you dont put the SSTV frequencie (27,700)also on the ROS list.
    I think its a bad dessiccion and hope you will take it out of the list.

    Thank you José Nieto, so this high speed data mode is usefull on VHF/UHF/SHF, main reason is a wide band transmition???
    This mode will replace Pactor maybe???.
    There is more aspects, data speed (rate) , anti-jamming ability
    Sorry, but this is only theory.

    Generally, ROS is a perfect developed program and also Opera.
    Ladislav OK1UNL.

  184. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    Hi Ladislav,

    It is possible to implement any thing. The question is that i think it is not practical for a QSO mode.

  185. Ladislav Says:

    Hi José,
    Is a possible implement into the ROS modem theory of Adaptive modulation??
    see here:

    and here

    So in my opinion is a possible use the evaluation quality CRC BAD or OK for switching between ROS 8 or ROS 16 etc….
    Or another way is a counting bit rate for switching “robust” mode.
    Of course on start and end of transmition must be send /receive packet for changing mode of the far radio.
    The same theory using RSID (MultiPSK, Fldigi)
    73! and Thanks for replay.

    Christmas 2011 in Madeira (CT3) and ROS

    Hi All,

    I hope this is of interest to some.

    I shall be on Madeira, CT3, AF-014, IM12mp, from the 19th December, through to the 26th December.

    I’m taking the FT817 (sorry just the 5 watts) with me and a homebrew portable 1.3m Mag-Loop, for 20m to 10m. Primary activity will be on 17m and 12m.

    Activity will be on ROS, Olivia, JT65, and WSPR; and if I really cannot find anyone to have a QSO with, I’ll revert to PSK and 20m …. Hi Hi.

    The loop, just about loads up on 30m, so I may give that a try.

    If anyone wants to set up skeds, from 2200z on the 19th through to 2200z on the 25th, then please contact me via:

    I’ll be using the callsign CT3/G3ZXX from IM12mp94nc, which is the Royal Savoy, in Funchal.

    If I don’t manage to work you while I’m there, then please have a Happy Christmas and Seasons Greetings to All.

    Hi All,

    I use a TS2000 kenwood and a signalinkusb interface which is ok without modification. However, the cat doesn’t work properly to drive the frequency automatically, i must use the vfo to display the correct frequency on TX/RX. The other functions (PW, AT) are ok but i note the AT is “on” by default at the sofware opening while it is “off” in the ROS window: clicking twice on the tuner button shut down the AT on TX/RX.

  230. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    Hello Phil,

    The 3 mins marge is neccesary to give priority to QSOs, but i am sure there is enough QRGs in this moment for all ROS users.

    Difficult copy you on 40meters, i have no good reception, but EA5DV copied and others european stations can copy you better. Could you put the bcn on 30meters?

  231. Phil Says:

    Hello Jose,

    I’m new to ROS, and must congratulate you and friends for this great software.
    It has some very nice tools for propagation research, like the bcn mode with report. I’m quite involved in long DX VHF/UHF terrestrial.

    I wonder if in next versions, maybe, there would be a possibility to include a free qrg that you can enter on bcn mode. In the mean time, while bcn mode, avoid the 3 min listenning, after rxing a signal on the band.

    For more details on our work on tropo here anyone can have a look to

    I would really love to try the bcn features in VHF/UHF DX work, and see how it goes.

  240. Dave Says:

    Hi All,

    Not been using ROS for a while, but got back on to 20m with ROS during the last week, with the latest version.

    Lots of NEW gimmicks, etc.,

    However, can someone please clarify, which frequencies we should or should not be using on 20m.

    I note from a quick search of the NET that 14101 and 14107 appear to be used for other modes. Certainly there appears to be lots of complaints from users of other modes, about ROS on these frequencies.

    Is this why I’m yet to hear a station on 14107 and can call and call on 14101 with very very few responses, all of which have been kept very short.

    14103 and 14105 seem to be quite busy.

    Are we avoiding 14101 and 14107 ?

    If so, why are these options in the programme ?

    Also, are there any other frequencies, on other bands, that I should be avoiding ?

    Any clarification would be much appreciated.

    Hola Jose Alberto.
    Veras te comento un problema con tu programa y el Yaesu Ft-2000.
    no consigo hacer funcionar el cat con tu programa.

    El cat esta configurado: Com6: Cat Ft-2000 Activar RTS y Baudios a 19200.

    cuando en tu programa le pincho el menu de Emisora y selecciono CAT.
    Le doy Yaesu, y busco Ft-2000, cominza a realizar un scan tu programa pero termina diciendo que no encuentra la emisora.

    sin embargo con el Ham Radio de Luxe lo hace a la primera.

    Decirte que solamente busco el cat en tu programa con todos los demas programas desactivados y sin usar el puerto com con otros programas, para que no de fallo.

    para evitar conflictos entre programas que quieran compartir el cat.

    Me puedes decir, que supongo sera un problema de configuracion del programa, ya que no he visto que en ningun sitio pueda ponerse los Baudios a 19200 y activar el RTs en el puerto Com6.

    Alguna sugerencia…
    Comentarte que el control de ptt con la tarjeta sonido y un pequeño interface funciona correctamente.

    , Esto no es un diálogo con mi Rx-PM SDR (la casilla correspondiente etiqueta se mantiene el rojo (no “la oportunidad de gestionar las frecuencias).
    Después de varios intentos descubrí que sólo si inicia por primera vez el software se ejecute ROS Simon “SDR de consola” y luego me voy a lanzar de inmediato ROS, entonces y sólo ahora el diálogo entre ROS y PM SDR-está bien (placa de color verde, entonces vamos y posibilidades “tipo de cambio).
    Esto no sucede si el primer lanzamiento “Winrad” o sotware que yo uso para más con mi PM-SDR “HDSDR”.
    Parece que hay algún parámetro de la comunicación a través de USB que se establece en el valor en Aceptar para comunicarse con los ROS que sólo “SDR-consola” utiliza.
    El problema es que soy un ignorante!

    Hello Doctor Sigi :-)

    Possibilities and combinations are infinite, but i think is not practical for the system and for ROS users, in the 99.9% of the situations, that a third could break.


  270. Sigi Says:

    hello DR.ROS :-)
    could you explain why you make it this way???
    (ok it is that more stations can share a qrg … right?)
    no third station could make a break in a running qso
    and i think that is not ok
    in the other solution a third could sent a break to one of the 2 stations … way better i think … but we could ask the other users …. so to all ros fans, users , club members:
    WHAT DO YOU THINK? … should it be possible if 2 ststions are “linked” for a third station to break in the qso ?
    beta function control
    i would like to have a good explanation for that from jose

  271. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    No, i think it is better like it is now.

  272. sigi Says:

    only f1 does work …. and only if focus is on ros

    no other f-buttons do work

    jose you got mail (subject decode switch)

    you send the sendings station call in start … would it not be better to sent the receiving stations call sign in start?
    like an adress in packet?

    ps i explained my idea further in direct mail to you that you understand better my thoughts …

  273. ik2aos Ricky Says:

    I have found a (very)smalll quirk but it is a little annoying to me :-)
    It seems that ROS reacts to keyboard function keys even if it does not have the focus.
    So, doing other things while running a ROS beacon in background, every time I press (for example) F5, the STATION macro text is appended to the beacon string.
    Sometimes I unintentionally make the beacon text very long! :-)

  274. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    I think you should test it before doing so many questions.

    New DECODE Switch for selective decoding.

    DECODE to ALL: Decode any message
    DECODE to “EA5HVK”: Decode only messages from EA5HVK
    decode only FROM ea5hvk or decode only TO ea5hvk ??? what is correct?
    so does if the switch is set to on the soft only decodes messages that are to you or from you???
    i know that it is for 2 stations to stay “connected” … so far so good …
    i guess you send something in the start sequence … ok on that …
    but question is does the soft only decodes text from the other station (that i have in the callsign field) …means in start you send the (others)call as “sent from” text …
    or does the soft receives only text that is sent to “me” ??? so in start you sent (my) call as “sent to” text???
    example: we both have qso (bfc and hvk) …
    if we both switch decode switch to on … you sent text to me … now is my soft receiving only FROM hvk or only TO bfc??? (2 different things for sure!!)
    i ask cause in the first way nobody else could intrude in our qso … in second way somebody else could say “break pse qrx to bfc (or to hvk .. depends on who the third will speak to)… so question is do you sent the callsign as sent to or sent from text?!?!? (or both?!?)
    should be possible for a third station to get into our qso (example: jesus gets to us and wants to say hello to you or to me)

    Hi José,
    In cause ROS modem 6.5.3
    Thanks for great SDR support.
    Another way:
    I found improvement support of PL2303 chip, another cheap variant of FTDI 232 chip. This is used in low cost CAT cable. Now is this RIG CAT definitevely works great.

    Virtual COM 3 works perfectly with FT-817 under older OS Win XP SP3 (home)
    I suppose success progress also with O.S. Win Vista and 7.
    Thank you very much

    Hola a todos:

    Felicidades a Jose Alberto por esta ultima versión del ROS, comentar que las últimas versiones de este programa me habían dado problemas a la hora de la rececpción y la transmisión pero esta última me funciona muy bien. La incorporación del VOACAP y la subida automáticas de los QSO al, hrdlog y son funcionalidades geniales que no he visto en otros programas de comunicaciones diigitales.

    Hi guys. Jose advised using ROS 6.4.5.

    This worked first time in Windows 7 ‘home edition’ I did NOT use the Install exe file though. Just unzipped the files into the WORKING directory and ran from their. Both variants (icons/no icons) work.

    Am using on-line SDR as input source in this setup. Seems to work fine.

    Well done Jose.

  281. Phil Says:

    tried all sorts to get ROS running in Windows 7. Failed.

    Seems to be a compatibility issue.

    Has anyone tried MS XP compatibility download …

    ROS works fine on my old XP PC

    There are still no instructions on how to install this.

  283. Graham Says:

    ROS CAT option to execute – Start up and Exit script , so can configure the rig for data on start up etc , then re-set on exit – eg FT897 048 – dig audio processing – off for data , on for ssb

  287. Brian Gregory Says:

    Thanks José. Obviously I ran the Install exe and it said installed successfully or something but nothing at all has happened. No icons to click, no uninstall entry to undo anything the install program did can be found. Running the other 2 exe files does nothing, they terminate immediately with no error message or anything. I’m worried that a faulty install program which clearly says installed okay when it isn’t installed at all might also have done other silly things like overwriting my system DLL or OCXs with older versions.

  288. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    I will fix it

  289. Peter Says:

    re ver 6.4.3 VOACAP Point to Point

    Jose: VOACAP coverage works very well but Point to Point is different.
    You say to press SHORT or LONG buttons and you show them next to the callsign area in the picture.
    I do not have those buttons on my screen.
    Any suggestions?

    This is the main Website. For installing run the file “ROS Install.exe”

    Is there a main website for ROS somewhere??

  292. Raul Says:

    Gracias, José Alberto.

    Miraré las FAQs que comentas y seguramente conseguiré ponerlo en funcionamiento. De todos modos, tratandose de un programa originado en España, entiendo que sería interesante disponer de una página con material de consulta y foro en nuestro idioma.

    Felicitaciones por tu trabajo, por el éxito obtenido por este nuevo modo y por la gran acogida que se ha puesto de manifiesto.

    Thank you for this software which is great fun. However it does need a good operators manual, the FAQ is not enough in my opinion.

    Kind regards

  301. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    Hi Stephen,

    The logical is to use DIGITAL USB for Digital Modes. What is the difference with USB only?

  302. Stephen Says:

    Thank you Jose. I do wish v6.3.5 would not use DIGU when using PowerSDR. Would much prefer standard USB with DIGU as a user option

    Dear Jose, After many years, at the behest of a friend I have taken up ham radio again. Your Ros v6.2.7 Beta amazing, signal buried in noise at slow data rate; beats cw. Am using Toshiba P200D with Vista to Yaesu FT747, no vox. And USB to RS232, to TTL converter to CAT. RX, TX, RTS, CTS are available. I cannot get RTS to key (PTT). ROS doesn’t list FT747 as a supported radio. Can you help?
    Many thanks.

    Franco I6QFZ

  321. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    OK, you are using the old “ROS Install.exe”

    You have to use the new “ROS intall.exe” included in the .ZIP file. Be careful how and where are you uncompressing the archives. You’re making a mess with directories

    Hello Josè
    thanks for response , but I still have problems
    after unzip the ros zip file i have 5 file and 2 folders .

    In the OCX folders there are 13 ocx file but no the
    where am I wrong ?
    Franco I6QFZ

  323. José Alberto Nieto Ros Says:

    Yes, in OCX folder you have the new file. You need unzip all the new files in your PC, not only .exe files.

    I have send you an emial. Open it, please.

    73 Jose Alberto EA5HVK

  328. Les M0ARM Says:

    Hi José,

    A small ‘bug’ has crept in with ROS recently with CAT operation.

    With the Icom IC-756PROIII I have the mode generally set to USB-D (USB Data) to enable the Accessory Port for digital operation.

    On starting ROS with CAT enabled, this mode is reset to USB which then requires the operator to manually change back the mode to USB-D.

    For some operators, USB is fine if your SignaLink USB (for example) is connected to the front “Mic” socket, but for those who use the “ACC” ports at the rear of the rig USB-D or its equivilent is needed.

    I hope this makes sense!

    Hi Stefan,

    Source Code is no impediment to share development. At least, no more than censorship.

  334. Stefan Rehm Says:

    Dear José,

    I just read your interesting interview ( Many thanks for providing us with your great mode.
    One thing that concerns me as (soon to be) ham with a linux-only system is the unavailability of the source code and/or the mode’s specs (Running ROS in a windows emulation layer such as Wine isn’t a really great option, as running linux programs under windows inside a virtualized linux is, esp. on low-end hardware such as netbooks). I understand your concerns about the challenge to release a moving target, but on the other hand, many open source projects achieve fast progress with shared development.
    Anyway, it is your idea and your code, so it’s your decision ;)

    hello jose
    620 and 621 … tried both and both worked from the first moment …
    but i have one question: why in the versions before you store ros ini in different folder as now and why is it set to c:/programs/ros. ini regardless if ros is installed on a different drive and folder
    for the shortcut on desktop i set to be e:afu/ros to be the workfolder but ros ignores that and makes an own folder in drive c …
    is that needed by the vista or win64 users or why it is nozt stored where it was befor??? could it not be stored in the rosfolder???
    all other things as before … fine software :-)

    ROS 6.2.0 does not accept the long passwords. For the radio i use a password 12 characters ( numbers and letters ) but ROS 6.2.0 accept only 10 characters.

    In the ADIF window the button under HAMLOG.EU is not readable . See screenshot in the attachment. I suppose it is a button archive !!!! but not sure.

    cat polling does make rfi problems
    i have a slight crack-crack.crack.sound in my transmit audio
    set poll interval to 1000ms … every second that cracking sound
    set to 200 … guess what… every 0.2 second that sound
    785 uses 1200 baud but can be switched to 4800 and 9600
    didn´t try that yet … maybe different baud does not make that noise …
    (or falls out off audio passband)
    but for that i have to open the rig and flip some switches
    would it be possible to stop polling of usb while transmitting??
    only one at start (for the rigs that uses cat for ptt) and the next poll at the end of transmitting…

    i have seen that there is another (not needed) poll if you switch from trx to rx
    direct when pressing ptt button a second time … that should only be at the end when buffer is empty (so a few seconds later)
    if the poll would only be at begin and end there were no rfi noises anymore ….

    The CAT operation for the FT847 works just fine using a Rig Expert modem interface. This automaticaly does the rs232 null modem condition. Beware it may require a null modem, crossed 9-pin rs232 to work, for some rigs. These can be bought as a unit or a rs232 plug can be re-wired, quite simple.

    FT-847 need first a special command to turn on the CAT. So, it is very strange it can work with 817, 857 or 897 that no require that command.

  369. Henk Says:

    I have a ft 847. If I take the transceiver config. for this radio, it doesn’t work.
    Switch I to the config for ft 817 or 857 or 897, it works. How is this possible?
