Recently some trials have been conducted using the remote station on digital modes and a report on the trials in PSK, RTTY and JT65 has been published. This is a set up and operating guide to operating digital modes on the remote, and it can be used as basis for further trials using other AFSK data modes.
The guide is in the member’s section, on the remote station page. You must be logged in to the site and a current financial club member in order to access this page.
