We have had horrible cooperation from the weather for the first 3 events and our on the air time has been limited so the club decided to change the qualification for the certificate. Now you only need to QSL 5 of 7 of the Special Events to get the clean scoop certificate !!
Good Luck and 73 from SEKARC

Digital Modes and FT8

Here is a great video that covers the growth and progress of digital modes and the through the current explosion of the new FT8 mode! This guy explains things very well and is very informative. I follow him on YouTube and I suggest you do also. He also explains the development of modes from Joe Taylor K1JT and how Taylor has changed the ham radio world!

FT8 is the newest weak-signal mode from Joe Taylor, K1JT, and friends. It operates very much like JT65 but is four times faster and more automated. Learn a little about the history of digital modes and conversational vs bare essential modes! Two sample QSOs!
