fcal - Man Page

Calculates a best-fit straight line for calibration data


fcal [FILE]


fcal is one of suite of command line tools designed to aid frequency measurement. These tools are aimed at those taking part in the ARRL FMT, but are also useful for general frequency measurement and calibration. They are included within the WSJT-X package for use with the FreqCal mode of WSJT-X.

The input FILE is normally the output of the fmtavg(1) tool, after adjusting to remove bad sources.
