Keeping with the times the DARC Lecture And Lab for April 25, 2020 has gone virtual! Join us at 11am Central Time from the comfort and safety of your home. This virtual Lab And Lecture we will be presenting an introduction to the popular digital modes FT8/FT4 using WSJT-X. More Details below.
The DARC hosts a Lab and Lecture on the fourth Saturday of each month that starts at 10am. LnL is usually held at the Dallas Medical Center (which is the same same locations for DARC monthly meetings) usually on the 3rd floor. This is open to anyone licensed or not and you don’t need to be a member of the DARC. However, due to the pandemic situation of the COVID-19 virus, we will be doing this virtually using Google Meet.
Will get started Sat Apr 25, 2020 at 11am. For this LnL you will need to access the virtual meeting with a supported device of your choice – Please review our getting started guide to virtual events prior to attending for a positive virtual meeting experience. Optionally – a working radio that supports SSB and sound card/modem connected to a computer.
For the meeting link and access information see the DARC Calendar details.
The first part of this virtual meeting we will go over a brief introduction to WSJT-X and then talk about setting it up and getting it configured for on air operation. Will show a live demo in realtime making QSOs, logging to popular online logs like QRZ and LoTW and confirmations. In the 2nd part – the lab portion, we will be available to help you get setup and going on your computer with WSJT-X and try and answer any questions you have etc.
