Mathias Kolpe, DL4MM and Alessandro Vitiello, IV3XYM,
are glad to present new RUFZ version for Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP and Vista called RufzXP:
CW Speed 1000 cpm (200 wpm) has been cracked!

What is RufzXP ?
"Rufz" is the abbreviation of the German word "Rufzeichen-Hören", which means "Listening to Callsigns". RufzXP is an excellent training software for improving code speed and CW practice, particularly (ultra) high speed memory copying of true amateur radio calls. Focussing on improvement of CW proficiency, it is no contest simulator and does not provide for QRM. It provides additional tools for keeping track of training progress and comparing with other operators via International RufzXP Toplist.
RufzXP is a "must" for every serious high speed telegraphy operator and is an official competition of IARU High Speed Telegraphy Championships.
The appendix "XP" indicates that this completely new version takes advantage of latest software technology and runs with MS Windows XP (and additional 2000, NT, ME, 98). Altough it has not fully tested yet, RufzXP seems to run under Vista too.
"Tancredi" is the name of this special RufzXP version.
How does it work?
RufzXP sends a chosen number of random selected true amateur radio calls (50 by default) to be typed into the keyboard. After <ENT> key has been pressed, the computer gives its next call.
If the call has been copied correctly, the transmitting speed increases, if not, it decreases. In this way software automatically adapts transmitting speed to user's maximum performance.
Every last call can be heard once again by pressing F6-key (50% penalty).
The number of points for each call is primarily related to the CW-speed sent, the number of errors and the length of the call. In addition typing time exerts a minor influence. But it is helpful to think about whether the heard call is useful or not.
Tone settings and other options can be modified in Option Form. (F2/F12).
<START< button or F5-key starts the attempt. Good luck!
