Normal usage requires a standard SSB transceiver and a personal computer with soundcard, or the equivalent.

All of the programs are available free of charge, licensed under the GNU General Public License. Installation packages for WSJT-X are available for Windows, Linux, and OS X; WSJT and WSPR have Windows and Linux packages, and MAP65 and SimJT are Windows only.
