It was good to see, during the week that Joe Taylor, K1JT took WSJT-X from its Beta state to a ‘release’ version. If you’ve been reading this blog you’ll have seen that JT9, the mode produced by WSJT-X has been very usable for some months, so the last few weeks have seen a few tweaks to the software.
It works well and it has gained in popularity recently over recent weeks – with a very considerable amount of activity now available on the mode. Interestingly, Joe says that future plans for the program call for the integration of some of the more popular modes from the WSJT software. This sounds good – particularly incorporated in the very easy to use interface provided in WSJT-X.
