Field Day JUNE 23-24 2018





New to Field Day? START HERE!

Field Day is ham radio's open house. Every June, more than 40,000 hams throughout North America set up temporary transmitting stations in public places to demonstrate ham radio's science, skill and service to our communities and our nation. It combines public service, emergency preparedness, community outreach, and technical skills all in a single event. Field Day has been an annual event since 1933, and remains the most popular event in ham radio.

Amateur Radio Digital Modes becoming more and more popular.

here are some easy tips to working out your digital modes.

it just takes persistence!

make sure your ALC meter stays on 0 (if it is moving then there is something wrong!)

power out must be below 20 watts ( i use 5 watts most of the time)

a few handy websites:

http://hamspots.net/FT8/
http://hamspots.net/jt65/

www.pskreporter.info



http://www.obriensweb.com/sked/index.php?board=digitalradio


software to download for jt65 : jt65-hf or wsjt-x

if you use Ham Radio deluxe or DxLab it works with those also.

there are a few other digital mode and psk31 and jt65 items in the blog:

you are more than welcome to peruse everything and comment about all or any of the items.
