On Wednesday, May 10th, 2023, the Delaware Valley Radio Association monthly meeting features a presentation by our own Joe Taylor, K1JT titled “WSJT-X Innards Explained”.
In person monthly meetings are held at Our Lady of Good Counsel Church, 137 W Upper Ferry Rd, Ewing Township, NJ 08628 (Driving Directions). For the convenience of our members, these meetings are also hosted on Zoom. Members will receive an email with instructions on how to join the Zoom teleconference. Members of the public are invited to request conference credentials by sending a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Joe Taylor was first licensed as KN2ITP in 1954, and has since held call signs K2ITP, WA1LXQ, W1HFV, VK2BJX and K1JT. He was Professor of Astronomy at the University of Massachusetts from 1969 to 1980 and Professor of Physics at Princeton University since 1981, serving there also as Dean of the Faculty for six years. He was awarded a MacArthur Prize Fellowship in 1981 and the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1993 – the latter for discovery of the first orbiting pulsar, leading to observations establishing the existence of gravitational waves. Since 2000, and especially after retirement in 2006, he has kept busy developing and enhancing digital protocols for weak-signal communication by Amateur Radio, including FT8, WSPR, Q65, and several others.
Many members and on multiple occasions have asked Joe, “so, how does this all work?”. Your wait is over. Come to the meeting and learn about the innards of WSJT-X.
Our monthly meetings are open to the public. Feel free to join for all or part of each meeting.
