PSK31, short for "phase shift keying" is just one digital mode which is fairly easy to set up. In most cases, all one needs is an interface between the transceiver and computer, and some software such as "digipan" or "Ham Radio Deluxe". PSK31 works by permitting the user to type on his keyboard, much like RTTY, and the software converts the typing to code, sending via the transceiver.

Most users view PSK31 on their computer screens via a "waterfall", where they can visibly detect transmissions. Simply by positioning a marker over the visible trace, the software and radio can decode the transmission.
