Text messaging in JT-Alert
Click on the picture to view a larger version. This is how text messaging looks. Had a nice JT run this evening on 17m. Last station I saw was W9MDB Mike again. Unfortenately the propagation was not reciproke. I decoded his signal without any problem but he didn't decode my signal. Though we had contact via "text messaging" which is a new build in feature of JT-Alert. It is most welcome as it enhances the JT mode which is not really a "talk" mode at all. Of course this is not valid as a QSO and it is only working with stations that both use the most updated version of JT-Alert. Below a map of results. I finally had a QSO with the state of Washington at the west coast. A new state for me. And it was not just USA/Canada this time but there was a QSO with Cuba as well.
