• Digital modes

    From Vk3jed@432:1/101 to All on Tue Apr 7 21:46:00 2020
    Anyone else playing with digital modes? I've started getting things back in order with the COVID-19 pandemic making plenty of excuses to get into ham radio again. So far, I've been experimenting with JS8Call and FreeDV on VHF.

    I haven't yet got the HF rig connected. Just made its keying interface accessible via USB over IP, will have to install a USB soundcard tomorrow to finish the job. :)

    Tony,

    While I'm on "internet radio", at least my license "isn't just a piece
    of paper". I noted that at a forum that I did at the last Arkansas
    hamfest before COVID-19 shut things down...and I got applause for it. :)

    I do 5 weekly nets, and 2 monthly nets...then, I have the BBS, and
    square dance publication items...so, I'm not bored by any stretch. Yet,
    with practically nonstop thunderstorms here the last 6 weeks, very
    little computer work has been able to get done.

    As I said elsewhere, mine isn't even a piece of paper, hasn't been for years.
