VK1MIC's JS8 demonstration and presentation

A little while ago I did a test using the JS8 mode with Wade VK1MIC who was demonstrating it to a meeting of the Canberra Region Amateur Radio Club. 5 watts on 80m was more than enough to make it across the 500km path to VK1. 

I didn't have my camera set up. But Wade did. His video is below. 

Watch it to learn more about JS8 and its features. 

If you haven't downloaded the free JS8Call software you really should to give this mode a go. It's fantastic for QRP. And, unlike FT8 you can have real keyboard conversations and even leave messages for people. 

PS: With six titles now available, there's sure to be something of interest. All books are available in ebook or paperback. Lean more here.
