Hi! I researched but didn't found something about the encryption of the messages. I'm wondering if the VMAIL and FILEs we send is being encrypted, if yes what do the program use.
Encryption has obvious utility, but once you use it, you're not acting as a ham radio operator; even if licensed and on amateur frequency allocations. The wish for encryption capability is for communication security (what else) - not necessarily amateur radio communications. VarAC works for services other than ham radio, i.e. CB, and may not be legal for other services but is between the user and regulating authorities. Encryption is the same - between the user and regulators. I too wish VarAC had encryption as an option.
Why do you need encryption for Ham Radio comms?????
This should work to encrypt text before pasting into the data box or files before sending. I've not yet tried it with VarAC, but see no reason why it won't work. This app works well otherwise. https://paranoiaworks.mobi
Yes, you are right in that point but I thought it maybe exist anything that could be like an protection. I agree the thing about trust, but it would be good if something existed. Thank you for you spend time to answer. I will maybe ask more about your program.
Encryption is not allowed in the hamradio world. Licenses prohibit this.
