6 – Logs
Suggested frequencies for FT4 mode are: 3.580-3.590, 7.080-7.090, 14.080-14.090, 21.080-21.090 and 28.080-28.090 MHz.
Set the WSJT-X dial frequency to a multiple of 2 kHz, for example, 14.082, 14084 MHz.
Note: The WSJT-X development team proposes that run stations should select integral multiples of 200 Hz as their audio transmit frequencies and check the TX EVEN/1st box. Search and-pounce (S+P) stations should call at frequencies 0, 60, or 120 Hz above the run frequency. The WSJT-X user interface has tools to make these settings easy.
8 – Awards
Certificates will be awarded to all participants and can be downloaded online when available.
FT8 and FT4 frequencies are defined by the mode’s developer for Region 1
