    Default Sunday 3rd July - Digimodes Activity Night

    Meet in Chatroom. Can I suggest 7 or 9pm now Top Gear is back on.

    What mode this week??

    Please list a few modes to try, & we'll pick one before Sunday.

    JT-65, Hellscheiber & SSTV are my votes

    I vote for Hellschreiber, will camp 24.925MHz from about 5-6PM UTC.

    Last weekend the bands closed pretty quickly, even 40m.

    SSTV sounds like a lot of fun too...

    I use JT-65 every day and don't think it would be suitable for such a net.

    It's not so much a net as trying new modes. Even if you've used a mode, another week one might be something you haven't used.

    And it you think JT65 was not suitable, MT63 was really odd.

    Like Paul says we dont have a net more find a freq and call CQ although we do work each other..

    I'd vote Hell for next week 9pm or after as it clears top gear.

    Maybe we can have two slots this one + 40m/80m later on this should help everyone around the world.

    As for SSTV i have to admit i've never had a QSO using it :o

    I ended up elsewhere last Sunday - apologies - but I should hopefully be around this Sunday for it.

    I'm happy to work whatever mode!

    Have fun with Hellschrieber, it's a mode I've never used and would like to try it. It'll be a while before I'm back on any data modes though.

    Well, that was a bit of a wash out.

    Dem showed up, but no contact made. Later in evening no one else was setup or unwell. So not contacts.

    Have to start a thread for next week shortly.

    Default Digital mode equipment?

    Sorry to butt in here but, what do you folks use to run your digital modes? (easiest to use, most inexpensive, won't cause a divorce??

    Couple of our local boys are playing with EasyPal sending pictures and I lack the knowledge to join in.

    You'll need a interface between the radio and the PC unless you have one of the new radios which have USB ports? You can probably find an interface at a local radio shop or ebay/internet in the UK http://www.g4zlp.co.uk is popular!

    For software theres plenty including packages like ham radio deluxe, mixw and fldigi

    Thanks for that. Whew, money, money, money. Look like I have to save for another 6 months as money is tight and the wallet decayed years ago from lack of use.

    At least I now know what I am looking for!!! Woohoo!!
