Training by Demonstration: Receiving Radio Messages (HF, SSB, Voice Procedure)

Post date: Aug 4, 2020 11:41:17 AM

A few questions that could come up:

  • I hear the radiogram being voiced, and I have these forms, but how do I use them for receiving messages?
  • How do those guys copy so fast? (Quick answer: touch-type, don't hand-write.)
  • Why is it so hard to get it right on HF?
  • How do I make sure that I've got the message right? What do I do if I think something's wrong?

These are all good questions. Watch COTN net manager Matthew join the Ohio Single Sideband Net and receive traffic. You can listen to his rig and hear exactly what he hears, watch what he's typing on screen, and see visual commentary that breaks down the elements of procedure to show you what's happening.
