Welcome to the Portland Amateur Radio Club

The January 13th PARC program is FT8 and other digital systems and is presented 
by Tom, W7TEG.  Tom was part of the field day digital effort this year.  FT8 
has become a very popular HF low power mode.

Tom will cover FT8-Setup, Equipment, Computers vs. Raspberry Pi,-and a few 
ways to use rig controls-- FLRIG vs WSJT use in combo-A limited how it works 
explanation will be included and - we may even be able to make a few 
contacts!! -

Tom will have a brief troubleshooting segment about problems with settings 
for his Yaseu FT-857D.  Setup for different radios can be VERY different for 
setup and Tom has seen a few setups and might be able to help.

Tom will briefly talk about JS8Call, FLDIGI, WinLink and SSTV, and can 
expand on these if people have questions.

The meeting is the second Monday, January 13th at 7:00PM, with the program 
starting by 7:30.  As always we will have time for short walk on 
presentations.  If you have a personal project you would like describe this 
is your chance.
