  Description     : Digital Voice for HF

FreeDV is a GUI application that allows any SSB radio to be used for
low bit rate digital voice.

Speech is compressed down to 1400 bit/s then modulated onto a 1100 Hz
wide QPSK signal which is sent to the Mic input of a SSB radio. On
receive, the signal is received by the SSB radio, then demodulated and
decoded by FreeDV.

FreeDV was built by an international team of Radio Amateurs working
together on coding, design, user interface and testing. FreeDV is open
source software, released under the GNU Public License version
2.1. The FDMDV modem and Codec 2 Speech codec used in FreeDV are also
open source.

Why FreeDV?

Amateur Radio is transitioning from analog to digital, much as it
transitioned from AM to SSB in the 1950's and 1960's. How would you
feel if one or two companies owned the patents for SSB, then forced
you to use their technology, made it illegal to experiment with or
even understand the technology, and insisted you stay locked to it for
the next 100 years? That's exactly what was happening with digital
voice. But now, hams are in control of their technology again!

FreeDV is unique as it uses 100% Open Source Software, including the
audio codec. No secrets, nothing proprietary! FreeDV represents a path
for 21st century Amateur Radio where Hams are free to experiment and
innovate, rather than a future locked into a single manufacturers
closed technology.

I've been builing packages while trying to keep up with
active development, and it is time for better availability
of packaged versions to facilitate testing by early adopters.

Expect the initial series of uploads to go into Debian experimental.
The Lintian warning count is low, but the upstream developers
expect some incompatible protocol changes between versions
for the near future.
