Radio hams transfer Crypto Currency on 40m band
CryptoVibes reports amateur radio was used to send Bitcoin from Toronto to Michigan on 7.077 MHz using the digital mode JS8Call
The transfer was made on February 12 between radio amateurs @nvk in Toronto and Sam Patterson @SamuelPatt in Michigan (MI).
This is believed to be the first transfer of a Bitcoin across national borders using amateur radio.
Second attempt today, through the #SnowStorm.
To RX you don’t need a Ham license–in most countries. Get your SDR connected to @js8call and a 7Mhz (40m) antenna.
