Our next CTDXCC meeting on Tuesday, October 2nd 6:30pm will feature Gene Hinkle K5PA and Tom Parish KB5RF to tell our story about a collaboration to run FT8 remotely in Marquette MI.
We will briefly cover some of the issues of building the remote station. Yep, there is a story there. The main focus is to cover why FT8 is gaining in popularity and demo various features of interest including the DXpedition Mode.
We plan to talk for 35 minutes and allow another 15 minutes for Q/A. And yes, we’re going to run the FT8 demo live!
