RE: [30MDG] Re: JT65a easier than ever with JT65-HF.....30 Meters?
Just a further thought re jt65a
If you logon to this site
You can see which band is being used, if someone has jt65HF running and listening to 30 meters they show on this logger
theres also a chat option for a few lines of text
I said before I listen on 10 137 but its actually 10 137. 8 that I listen, seems to keep me away from those other funny noises
I have been working with JT65A on 30 meters for about 3 months. My experience is about the same as Fred (DL6XAZ).
Worked about 35 stations, mostly Europeans but also South Africa, Canada.
Dial frequency I use is 10.138 MHz. Power is either 3 watts or 30 watts.
Problem is that unless you setup a sked (use Hamspots or W6CQZ) you will be unlikely to get an answer to a CQ call on 30 meters. Probably no-one is listening on the off-chance of a QSO. Good opportunity for 30MDG members to develop this mode here.
JT65a afficianados congregate on 20 meters (14.076 MHz dial) and that does get rather busy.
Hope to work other 30MDG members on the band/mode.

Hi Don and all,
I started with WSJT on 30m in Jan 2009, and having got used to the program I'll stick to it. JT65 is not heard very often on 30m but it has offered me some interesting QSOs until today:

When I call CQ I do so on 10.138 kHz dial; I have heard stns calling up to 10.139.5 kHz dial but very often colliding with other modes like WSPR, bpsk31, cw-beacons etc. The QRGs in the above list have the audio frequency added.
Unfortunately, adding to the presently poor conditions, I suffer from a dreadful local noise level except for the night hours when people switch off their old telly sets, power line wlans and similar nuisances.
I have seen your call on my screen but could not make it. One day we get each other in the log.
Good luck, vy73 de Fred DL6XAZ #988
