locked arrl ww digital contest
jim crisco WA4YIZ
the first arrl ww digital contest is just around the corner, june 4/5
I plan to do another “dry run” this Saturday may 21. test my updated software.
Remember the contest ft-x exchange is not the normal exchange.
I will be on the air appx 1700z for several hours.
Please join in and test your station and software.
Below are the suggested freq’s from the arrl guide.
Suggested Band Plans for FT* modes:
FT-4 Recommended Sub-bands:
50.330 to 50.340
When choosing your operating frequency, set the radio dial at the bottom of the sub-band and QSO with stations on audio frequencies within the radio passband, typically 2.5-4 kHz wide. If a sub-band becomes crowded, move the radio dial frequency up in 2 kHz increments, as needed. (For example: 7.080, 7.082, 7.084, 7.086 and 7.088).
FT-8 Recommended Sub-bands:
3.590-3.600 (No Digital above 3600)
50.340 to 50.350
When choosing your operating frequency, set the radio dial at the bottom of the sub-band and QSO with stations on audio frequencies within the radio passband typically 2.5-4 kHz wide. If a sub-band becomes crowded, move the radio dial frequency up in 2 kHz increments, as needed. (For example: 7,090, 7.092, 7.094, 7.096 and 7.098).--
