This month’s Franklin County Amateur Radio Club meeting will be held online via Zoom due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The meeting will be on Monday May 11 at 7 PM. All are welcome to attend this online meeting.
FCARC President Aaron Addison KF1G will presenting on JS8Call. JS8Call is a digital mode built on the popular FT8 protocol, however, it instead offers real-time, keyboard-to-keyboard messaging as well as store-and-forward capabilties and other similar features.
Parts of this presentation has been developed as a part of a training that Aaron has been working on with Section Emergency Coordinator Bob Meneguzzo K1YO. The training is intended to be a part of a series to help WMA ARES members communicate in a variety of ways. Digital communications has proven extremely useful in emergency communications scenarios for transporting bulk data such as summaries of weather and infrastructure reports. All WMA amateurs are welcome to join the meeting and learn about JS8Call, especially those involved with WMA ARES.
