Hello and welcome to this episode of Linux in the Ham Shack! In our deep dive this time around, we take an in-depth look at the new weak-signal chat mode called JS8CALL, formerly FT8CALL. We explore the history and development of the mode, how it's currently being used, the team behind the project, the operation of the software and much more.

    Ever since I started to experiment with radios back in the ‘sixties’ I depended on WWV and WWVW for verification and calibration of various radios that I worked on. I also used the station(s) as a means of observing the Rx/Tx conditions on various “BANDS” as well as listening for reports on solar cycle conditions.

    I strongly believe that it would be a mistake to deactivate this reliable “STANDARD” from the airwaves. It has served radio amateurs and operators well over the years as a dependable beacon in all it’s forms of usage. It will be a sad day to see this honorable service disabled in order to save a few dollars, in the long term.
