Where

20m - 14.105.000 Mhz

Lower Side Band - LSB

Depending on the device you use, this CF will differ. On a PK-232 TNC, this will be 14.105.510 Mhz because of the tones. You will see the waterfall on Soundmodem so can select the stream. I'll expand on this further down this page.

14.105.000 Mhz

  • PK-232 (US) [2110/2310] = 14.105.510 Mhz
  • Kantronics KAM [1600/1800] = 14.105.000 Mhz
  • UZ7HO Soundmodem - Tune using Waterfall Beacons.

Who

Anyone with a HF transceiver or Receiver and a 20m Antenna, TNC or Soundcard and a PC.

 

Why

The technology before the internet and these days often seen as a novelty. It would be a shame to loose the skills in Packet radio, especially the HF DX Packet communications. TNC Equipment is cheap on Ebay or using a soundmodem is just a matter of the right cable for your PC to Radio.

 

What

Have a listen for the beacon calls, you should set these to 900 seconds maximum and then call back, either to the call or to the mailbox ID. Leave Messages or try to digipeat to another station beyond your reach ? All fun things to try on a Sunday morning in the shack.
