jPSKmail-2.0.30 beta testing
New in jPSKmail-2.0.22:
mail upload for sailors:
To send all mail from the outbox to the server, you can now automate
the process, so that all files can be uploaded without
operator intervention. To do this:
- Use 'New mail'
Email tab to write one or more new mails.
- Set 'Mode' to 'Mail/scanning'
and make sure the server and the minute (in the above picture 9A1CRA
and minute 0)
Every 5 minutes the
now check if there are files left in the Outbox.
As soon as the active
1) is reached, the client will try to connect to the server and upload
When the Outbox is
client will disconnect again.
jPSKmail-2.0.18 introduced mail
notification, which is making life a lot easier for single
If the client is linked
to a server,
the QSL message in reply to a position beacon now contains the mail
of your internet
mailbox and the local message store on the server.
The picture above shows the number of new mails (143) on the QTC button.
The Mbox menu
is now active,
and shows the message

Changes are also notified in the terminal:
Send local mail
via another server:
When you want to send local mail to somebody on a server you can not
you can use another server to forward your mail to the destination.
E.g. you want to
send local mail to PA0R@PI4TUE,
but you can not work PI4TUE... then drop the mail off
at e.g. 9A1CRA.
If both 9A1CRA and PI4TUE have a working internet connection,
9A1CRA will send your message to a forwarding server on pskmail.org.
Servers with version 2.0.2 and higher will look every 5 minutes if
there is mail waiting
for them, and retrieve and store the mail. This way you could send mail
When one of the stations has no internet connection the servers will
try to forward the message over the air. This works with 1 hop only, as
the HF footprint
of the servers is enormous. All this is still experimental, so reports
are welcome on the mailing list...
jPSKmail-2.0.22 is a
self-contained program running on the java
The java modems (PSK, PSKxxxR, MFSK,THOR) were taken from the fantastic
translated from C++ to java by John, VK2ETA and Rein PA0R.
Measurements show that the modems are at least as good as the
original ones, sometimes better.
The code is beta, and there are still some rough edges,
especially regarding the timing of
the ARQ protocol. But if it is only tested @PA0R we will never finish
Pse send test results to
