JS8CALL 40M NET - MONDAY FEB 8TH @ 7PM EDT
For those who may be interested in digital modes, I will be hosting an experimental 40 m net using the js8 protocol on a frequency of 7.078 MHz which is the universal standard js8 frequency. All stations taking part are asked to use the @JSNET call to facilitate group messages. All stations taking part should attempt to space themselves out above 1000 HZ so as to not double up. All stations will be asked to check in after a brief preamble at the start of the net. I will then call the stations individually and allow them to respond. We will be using the standard normal speed which operates in 15 second windows at ~16 words per minute. Due to the slow nature of the protocol, users are encouraged to compress their text messages using unconventional slang (the same way people shorten SMS messages). For example, instead of "you" simply "u" will suffice. At the end of a transmission, all stations are encouraged to put the acronym "BTU" meaning back to you for clarity in addition to using the standard present diamond symbol that automatically indicates the end of a transmission.
