Be warned this is beta software and has had far less testing than the pre 1.0 versions.
This initial release will only work on Windows 8.1 64bit and above.
The Visual Studio 2017 redistributable is needed
Only Hermes Lite radios are supported
Simply unzip sparksdr_1_0b11.zip to a directory of your choice and run sparksdr.exe
Settings and error logs will be saved in c:\users\##YOU##\AppData\Roaming\m0nnb\sparksdr. This has changed from the pre 1.0 code so old settings will not be used or affected.
There are now two log files of interest, log.txt and sparkcore.log
FT8 will autodetect if wsjt-x 2.0 is installed and use the appropriate mode for tx
Compound callsigns cannot be sent in FT8 mode.
The Audio resampler control is currently disabled so audio may not be as good as previous versions.
Many performance features are disabled so cpu load may not be optimal (but should not be bad).
The new panafall display is a work in progress.
