Posted: Thu Mar 01, 2018 12:58 am
Notice from the Facebook Portable Digital & QRP group:
For more info look up the Portable Digital & QRP group on Facebook.This weekend we will be QRV on 30M using HFAPRS in PSK63 & MFSK16 modes, using APRS Messenger for TX/RX or DroidPSK for Android based TX beacons from the field.
We return to 30M as the majority of activity globally, is already on that band.
Goals of the event
- Get your beacon onto APRS.FI over RF.
- Igate stations to APRSIS in your heard list.
- Exchange messages with other operators.
- Send your off-grid beacon from the field using HFAPRS in DroIdPSK.
You can download APRS Messenger free from www.crosscountrywireless.co.uk
DroidPSK is available from the Google Play store.
Please do not enable digipeating, as there is no need on HF.
Stations with high noise floor or without access to 30M can still participate by engaging with HF operators, through APRSIS, or sending messages to participating stations through VHF igates.
