# What is QRSS?

QRSS is a type of continuous wave (CW) radio signal which uses frequency-shift keying (FSK). QRSS is ultra-narrowband (5Hz bandwidth) and ultra slow speed (about 3 letters per minute). The abbreviation QRSS is [Morse code slang](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Q_code) for "transmit a lot slower".

### QRSS Hardware
This repository is exclusively devoted to software. I run a separate repository dedicated to theory, design, construction, and testing of QRSS transmission and reception hardware: https://github.com/swharden/QRSS-hardware
