Calling all hams! The next DARC Radio in the Park event is tomorrow at Custer Park in Richardson!
On the air, we have a few operating opportunities going on: the 10-10 International CW Spring Contest is in progress, as are QSO parties for the 7th call district, Indiana, Delaware, and New England. There’s also a group of special event stations on the air to celebrate Europe Day.
In ham radio news:
Have you tried FT8, the digital mode that was discussed at the last club meeting? The new DXpedition mode was tested again today.
A digital interoperability test between hams and the military went very well last month in Iowa. It took advantage of the fact that the antiquated 300-baud speed limit on HF digital communications doesn’t apply on the 60-meter band. If you’d like to join in a more traditional cross-band communications test, the annual Armed Forces Day exercise is next weekend!
