11:00AM – JT-65A, a unique digital mode. Have you ever wondered how much of the noise you hear on the HF bands is actually comprised of signals too weak to be copied? JT65A is a weak-signal digital mode that allows you to pull great DX out from under the noise on the high frequency spectrum. Designed for EME (Earth-Moon-Earth) HF and VHF work, this is an ideal digital mode for the bottom of the sunspot cycle.
