Last night, I made my first JS8call contact!
I’m in a group chat with other amateur radio operators, and someone mentioned he wanted to attempt a JS8 contact on 40m.
Most of the digital modes I do are FT8 and FT4 with FT8 being a vast majority of the time.
He directed me to the JS8call website where there is a version for Linux, specifically Ubuntu! source
I promptly downloaded it, not knowing what I’m doing, and tuned my radio to 7.078 MHz USB.
Within moments of him stating he was calling my callsign I saw his message pop up!
He also confirmed my contact via QRZ too!
You can see the contact logged on my QRZ page at https://www.qrz.com/db/K8VSY it is logged as 2022-01-17 04:04 UTC.
