Wine is a way to run Windows software on Linux, but with no Windows required. Wine is an open-source Windows compatibility layer that can run Windows programs directly on any Linux desktop. Essentially, Wine is trying to re-implement enough of Windows from scratch so that it can run all those Windows applications without actually needing Windows.

wsjt-x_improved is an enhanced version of the excellent WSJT-X software by Joe Taylor K1JT, Steve Franke K9AN, Bill Somerville G4WJS and others (https://sourceforge.net/projects/wsjt/). Sometimes, however, even good things can be improved …

Notes: wsjt-x_improved is experimental and is licensed under GNU GPL v3 (https://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-3.0.txt). I am not aware of any adverse effects. However, use it at your own risk!

  • Highlighting of CQ and 73/RR73 messages.
  • Available with 3 different GUIs: WSJT-X's standard GUI, an alternative layout ("AL") and a widescreen version. The latter two provide a larger Band Activity window. "AL" is optimized for small screens and laptops.
  • Mode buttons make it easy to switch between the frequently used modes (useful when menus are hidden). For Hound mode, simply set your rig's VFO to the correct DXp frequency. When you hear the fox, just press the "H" button and make your QSO. Press the "H" button again to return to normal FT8 mode.
  • Band Hopping for FT8, FT4, Q65 and MSK144! A new Tab has checkboxes for the most important frequencies. Just select the bands/modes you want and push the "Band Hopping" button. Automatic band hopping takes place every other full minute. (Very useful together with PSKReporter.)
  • FT8 and FT4 decoders optimized for DX.
  • More frequent updates and faster bug fixes, including the latest Hamlib files.
  • In the Wide Graph window, text of the "Control" checkbox has been removed to prevent accidental ticking when setting lower audio frequencies.
  • Call CQ with individual contest names instead of "TEST" (e.g. CQ PACC ...).
  • False Decodes Reduction (FDR)! It reduces significantly the number of FT8 false decodes without a reduction of the sensitivity. It only increases the required confidence level for some unusual message formats.
  • A so-called diagnostic mode allows you to collect data to troubleshoot problems with wsjt-x_improved, or its communication with your rig.
  • Bars for the Tx and Rx audio frequencies on the Wide Graph (like JTDX).
  • Right-click on the waterfall directly sets the Tx audio frequency.
  • Doubleclick on the Lookup button searches on QRZ.com for the callsign from the DX Call box.
  • PLUS versions with more features (audible alerts, Cloudlog support, etc.) available.
  • New: Dark Style: Now it is possible to switch the dark style on and off directly in the main window. Just click on the new item "Use Dark Style" in the "View" menu. For dark style, it is recommended to adjust the highlight color scheme towards pastel tones.
  • New: "Wait and Reply" and "Wait and Call" are nice little assistance functions to help finish a QSO more intelligently than calling all the time when the other station does not answer, or disappears temporarily due to QSB.
