📡 Cutting-Edge Call Sign Detection

Automatic Call Sign Recognition: Boondock Echo will soon automatically detect amateur radio call signs! This advanced feature seamlessly integrates with the amateur radio database, paving the way for future innovations in spotting reports and auto-logging capabilities. We just implemented it, we’ll have to work the bugs out before we release it.

Imagine the possibilities. With this new function, tracking and logging become more efficient, which enhances your amateur radio experience!

🔍 Morse Code Deciphering

Inclusive Technology for All Hams: In our mission to make amateur radio accessible to everyone, we’ve introduced a feature that can detect and decipher Morse code. This is a significant step forward, especially for hams who have lost or only have a limited sense of hearing.

With this new feature, understanding Morse code becomes easier and more inclusive, ensuring that everyone in the ham community can participate fully, regardless of their abilities. There’s still a lot of work to make the feature robust enough for daily use, but we’re on that journey.

Digest Mode

Meeting Notes for Net Controllers Any net controller will tell you that logging nets is a pain and a half. Usually, we’re happy to capture call signs. But now, a net (normal or emergency) can be so much more! We can capture all audio around an event or time-frame you specify!

Think of the possibilities — you can capture police scanners, emergency nets, radio club meetings, and more!

🌟 Looking Ahead

These latest advancements are just the beginning. We’re committed to continuous improvement and expanding the capabilities of Boondock Echo. Your support and feedback are invaluable in this journey. Stay tuned for more updates and enhancements shortly!
