Short Description IRA-ARQAutomatic Repeat reQuestAutomatic Repeat Query, also known as BULG-ASCII and ASCII-ARQAutomatic Repeat reQuestAutomatic Repeat Query, is a high data rate ARQAutomatic Repeat reQuestAutomatic Repeat Query FSKFrequency-Shift Keying system used by Bulgarian, Slovakian, and Czech diplomatic stations. The maximum speed of this mode has been seen to reach 1200 bdBaud (unit symbol Bd) is the unit for symbol rate or modulation rate in symbols per second.. Not seen much much nowadays

IRA-ARQAutomatic Repeat reQuestAutomatic Repeat Query, also known as BULG-ASCII and ASCII-ARQAutomatic Repeat reQuestAutomatic Repeat Query, is a high data rate ARQAutomatic Repeat reQuestAutomatic Repeat Query FSKFrequency-Shift Keying system used by Bulgarian, Slovakian, and Czech diplomatic stations. The maximum speed of this mode has been seen to reach 1200 bdBaud (unit symbol Bd) is the unit for symbol rate or modulation rate in symbols per second.. IRA-ARQAutomatic Repeat reQuestAutomatic Repeat Query uses the ASCII (ITA-5 or IRA) alphabet charset. Some transmissions of IRA-ARQAutomatic Repeat reQuestAutomatic Repeat Query can be decoded using an ASCII decoder.

This mode is typically found with baudBaud (unit symbol Bd) is the unit for symbol rate or modulation rate in symbols per second. rates of 75, 100, 110, 150, 180, 200, 240, 300 or 600 bdBaud (unit symbol Bd) is the unit for symbol rate or modulation rate in symbols per second.. Faster baudBaud (unit symbol Bd) is the unit for symbol rate or modulation rate in symbols per second. rates have also been seen.
