Utah Amateur Radio Club - Special Meeting Notice

April 8 (on-line) meeting: Using the Digital Text Modes

How can you work many stations all over the world with a very modest HF antenna? The answer you've been looking for might be the digital modes. At the April 8 (on-line) UARC meeting, Randy Kohlwey, WI7P, will tell us all about them including how they work, what kind of results you can expect, and what you need to start using them.

As home computers have gotten more powerful, software has been developed that will dig very weak signals out of the noise, making contacts possible that, otherwise, would have been difficult given low power, poor conditions, or low-gain antennas. Randy first became active on the FT-8 mode in October of 2017 and in that time has used it to make nearly 16,000 contacts. He will talk about his station setup, what he has been able to work using less than 100 watts, how he operates and what software he uses. If conditions allow, he will give a live demo. If the moon is high enough, he will demonstrate receiving signals with MAP65. If an amateur radio satellite is active during the presentation, he will demonstrate how he uses a Funcube Pro+ and SDRConsole to monitor transponder activity.

The meeting will be on Thursday, April 8, and will, again, be an on-line meeting. It can be accessed (along with several past meeting programs) by going to: https://www.youtube.com/c/UtahAmateurRadioClub.

The meeting will start at the usual 7:30 P.M. It should be possible to connect to it and make sure everything is working any time after 7:00. Except for July and August, UARC meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month at 7:30 P.M.
