Be a part of Field Day 2018

Field Day is Amateur Radio’s open house. It is a picnic, a campout, practice for emergencies, an informal contest and, most of all, fun!

Field Day is held on the 4th weekend in June; in 2018 that is 1:00PM CDT Saturday, June 23rd, to 3:59PM CDT Sunday, June 24th.

Introduction to WSJT-X FT8

FT8 is a new mode included in WSJT-X versions 1.8 and later.

This weak signal mode is intended—and optimised—for making efficient barebones contacts; a definite plus during this time of poor propagation. Although FT8 does not support rag-chewing or contesting exchanges it is, none the less, well worth trying out in the Amateur Radio spirit of learning and experimentation.
