Comms - HF

How many here have HF comms capability?
(Count=14, 3/18/20)

Are you up and running (legally)?


Could you be up and running in a week (legally)?

I have my ham radio setup at the house (Yeasu FT-897) and I have a mobile unit (Yaesu FT-857) in my vehicle. I have HF/VHF/UHF capabilities with each radio.

Fully legal (extra class license), and can be running now if I wanted to.

Whatever you do, this situation is not an “end of the world” scenario and you shouldn’t operate without a license. I have no doubt the FCC would issue a fine once things calm down.

That being said, it’s a great time to study for your ham radio license if you have free time.

I’m really interested in HF digital modes. I wish there was something like FT8 that could accommodate maybe 64 or 128 characters and allow a bit of QSO. It could be useful in an emergency situation.

There is, it's called JS8Call. Similar to FT8 but can do QSO's at 20 to 30 WPM rates..
