Hi, Bernie:

Thanks for your answer. Actually, I'm a little off my game. 

I like more "traditional" modes like psk, rtty, etc, although I also work in remote mode on FT8.

However, I always thought ft4 was developed for contests.

Thanks for your answer and please be very careful

Hello Joaquin.

FT4 and FT8 can be used for contesting but the majority of QSOs are for working awards such as DXCC, WAS, etc. and of course,  just having fun without a fancy antenna setup.

The WSJT-X program has all the various frequencies for each mode and band pre-programmed .

Automatic alerting can be used with the JTAlert program — it is quite an impressive program.  Automatic logs can also be produced.  

I have  WAS on JT65, 49 confirmed states on FT8 and 44 confirmed states on FT4.  HI is always the tough one.

I use the WSJT-X -> JTAlert -> Ham Radio Deluxe  logging program.   Works great.

Check out the various groups.io groups for more information. Lots of good information and friendly help.

Be safe.

I am not a contester, but I've got 100 FT4 QSOs in my log (and over 7000 FT8 QSOs). At peak times the standard FT8 frequencies are full of signals and it's impossible to operate without QRMing other hams. FT4 doesn't perform as well as FT8 when signals are very weak, but FT4 is good enough. I've noticed a lot more activity on FT4 since COVID-19 set in. However, the standard FT4 frequencies aren't full yet. When FT8 is too busy, I'm running FT4 more often.

Re: FT4 curve increasing

EB4Z
 

Hi all:

Please don't let anyone understand this as a criticism of people who use FT4 mode.

Actually in this time of confinement by the Covid and Unfortunately it has hit my family, I haven't read much about it but as far as I know, FT4 mode is a mode only for contests.

If this has changed, please have someone explain it to me and get me out of my error.

I recently heard about an upcoming contest on FT4-FT8. I observe its rules and I don't know how you can pass serial numbers in these modes, as well as I don't understand that someone can suggest for these modes this example of frequencies: Suggested frequencies are: 3.590-3.600, 7.080-7.100, 14.130-14.150, 21.130-21.150 and 28.160-28.200 MHz.

I think if I have left something along the way, because I am really confused. I have the feeling that everyone is setting their own standards for themselves.

I don't know if any of you agree with this approach

Please, someone can give me some idea.
Sorry about my English, I needed help from an online translator

Re: WIN 10 Standby mode , stopping programs running

Graham
 

Hybrid sleep .......
W10 standby is not a simple standby after a certain time - it's hybrid sleep (see Google) by default on a desktop, laptops different.  That time is user selectable.

If you just want to power off the screen for a while before sending it to sleep for example then it's Settings>Power & Sleep  You can also get into the detail under the Additional Settings link on that page.

Re: Mystery JT65 signal

Hello Andy,

 

If KVASD (soft decoder) is ON, extract it to OFF. This decoder is very sensitive but introduce false decodes. The standard “hard decoder” has not this problem (although a false decode is still possible but very rare).

Hi everyone,



I struggle identifying a mysterious JT65 signal on the
30m band. I already asked this in other groups but no solution so far.

A few weeks ago I stumbled on a regular JT65 transmission on 10140.7kHz
transmitting every third minute. The message does not seem like coming
from ham, no callsigns but a cryptic string of characters, see this
short log excerpt:

20200408_1402 -21 -0.6  763 # KJIVVFULMOAI              .
20200408_1411 -21 -0.6  764 # KJIVMFULMQ00              .
20200408_1417 -21 -0.6  764 # KJIVMFULMQ05              .
20200408_1420 -23 -0.6  764 # KJIVKFULMQB0              .
20200408_1426 -19 -0.6  764 # KJIVDFULMR00              .
20200408_1429 -24 -0.6  764 # KJIVMFULMQAG              .
20200408_1505 -23 -0.6  765 # KJIVJFULMP00              .
20200408_1535 -21 -0.6  764 # KJIVJFULMP95              .
20200408_1541 -25 -0.6  764 # KJIVLFULMP00              .
20200408_1547 -22 -0.6  764 # KJIVKFULMP7F              .
20200408_1550 -26 -0.5  764 # KJIVQFULMO9H              .

This signal appears to be JT65, at least it can be decoded as one and
transmits every 3 minutes. Looks like a beacon or similar.

What we know so far, not in any particular order of importance:

- freq: 10140kHz +700Hz USB
- transmits 7/24 every third minute
- correct JT65 coding, can be decoded using WSJT-X or JTDX
- the message shows a pattern of

    KJIVxFULMxxx

where capitals are always the same while at places x varying

- carefully examining condx, appearing/disappearing of the sig,
coincidences to FT8 sigs shows probable location somewhere in AS Russia,
East EU, or maybe North EU, although at his stage needs further
listening, collecting of data and evaluation to narrow possible area

See a screenshot attached from yesterday evening. Yet a few wav files
can be downloaded as 9A5CW Patrick recorded two days ago:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1-asTxJwq0nEhQJlCs0M6v6rYgjcqz9QC

I am curious to know if anyone else also noticed this transmission, has
additional details or willing to help me spotting the source.


Thank you, 73...  Sanyi, HA3PG

Re: Mystery JT65 signal

Any of the  compressed format  systems ,  will  'always  produce ''valid''  out put , when  subjected to a  repeating  ''noise'' 
pattern , where  pre formatted  messages are  encountered, it becomes  ever more  ' realistic' 

Much merriment , is had, when  opera  responds to a  repeating , 'noise pattern [ usually a  keying attribute of a  'beacon kit' excited  transmitter' ] and go's on  to  print , what is perceived as  false  detections , only applies to  136 band , where  s/n levels  to  -45 dB are encountered ,  hence very low  spurious signals ,  cause  'havoc'  , once lodged in the  call  list , then other stations ,  similar respond ... catch22

I suspect, this is a  repeating  beacon , but not  JT system ,  intruder more  like ?
