JT9 - Another brand-new QRP digital mode

Posted by Roel DV1VHK on December 21, 2012 at 10:25 PM

Read about a new digital mode called JT9 from JT65 Facebook page. It's quickly gaining popularity among digital hams especially the JT65 users. Being an avid JT65 fan, I'm drooling to much to try this brand new digital mode.

The WSJT-X software is downloadable from the WSJT website. Latest release version is v0.5, r2788. It has a very informative user manual, so spend a little time to read it.

Download, installation and configuration of the sofware went fine. After a couple of minutes playing on the new GUI, voila! I'm on-the-air once more with a brand new QRP digital mode. Good to see some JA stations CQing on 15m while testing the software. Got the first five successful JT9 QSO's with them.

Here are the snapshots of WSJT-X software. 

Main window with colorful highlights. Any instance of "CQ" on the decode field will be highligted green.

The watefall window in action.....

I hope a similar JT Alert utility will be released soon for JT9

Catch you on the air.
