NEW Mode FT8 And HRD V6 Logging Is Again Supported by JTAlert


I'm an Amateur Radio enthusiast. I love the hobby and experimenting with radios, antennas and software. On my YouTube channel I upload videos on the Icom 7300 and Icom 7610 along with Ham radio software programs. I hope to inspire people to try new things in Amateur Radio.

    Why do you operate in split mode? Is it because you are using both WSJT-X and HRD at the same time?

      Hi John,

      Great question. Split mode is better because the transmitted signal is not degraded.
      From the website: “Split will result in a cleaner transmitted signal, by keeping the Tx audio always in the range 1500 to 2000 Hz so that audio harmonics cannot pass through the Tx sideband filter.”

      I just trust what the authors of the program say 🙂

      If you’ve worked PSK, you may have noticed when you transmit out of the 1500 to 2000 Hz window, the transmit power goes down a little. I used to see that when I operated PSK. The same principle as above I believe.

      Thanks for asking, best 73 and hope to hear you on.

      Rich, K0PIR

    Hi Rich,
    Thank you very much for this excellent video. In the video you mention changing your HRD database to SQL. I think you said there were instructions on your site for how to do this, but I can’t seem to locate them. Did I misunderstand? Thanks!
