The next Fulton ARC meeting will be on Wednesday, February 28, at 7 PM.

Digital modes (think CW) have been a part of ham radio since the beginning. After decades of dominance by electro-mechanical marvels (think RTTY - ASC-II), personal computers provided an explosion of new data modes.

In 2001 Nobel Laureate Joe Taylor, K1JT, released WSJT FSK441, a weak-signal communications mode. JT6M, JT65 and JT9 followed.

The latest addition to the WSJT-X suite, FT8, was announced in June of 2017 and has proven immensely popular.

Jim Shaver, N2ADV, was an alpha and beta tester for FT8. He will present a program on FT8, highlighting its capabilities and debunking some common misconceptions about the mode.
