Ohio JS8Call Stations Wanted

Post date: Feb 9, 2020 1:01:10 PM

COTN is participating in experimental use of JS8Call software for traffic handling. Any Ohio station is welcome to participate. Please contact KD8TTE to advise of your interest and availability.

JS8Call is software that allows for message transfer via the FT8 protocol. Where WSJT-X introduced FT8 and allowed for exchange of grid and signal report, JS8Call introduced a means of working longer contacts, directing messages, use of groups, and message relay with the FT8 protocol.

We are looking to experiment with JS8Call for use in third-party traffic handling, including messages on behalf of both the public and the agencies that serve them.
