Cambridge Hams Visit

14 of the Camb Hams will be on the island from 4-10 May at Ballacain Courtyard Cottages in Onchan. We’ll probably have antennas for most bands from 80m up, including several VHF bands and satellites.

We hope to have something for Eshail as well. There will probably be some SOTA and WAB activity as well as the fixed station at Ballacain. Hope some of the IOMARS members will be able to drop in while we are there.

JS8Call 1.0.0 General Release

For those interested in this particular data mode, this new release might be of interest, details below.

“Hey Folks! This is not a test, this is not a joke, it’s actually happening. The public release of JS8Call version 1.0 is here! You’ll find all of the public releases (now and future version) of JS8Call downloadable from this page: http://files.js8call.com/latest.html

For those following along at home, there were a few fixes from RC3 to 1.0 GA. I also added in one last feature…a “Check for Updates” on startup (by default) so we all know when a new version is released. There’s a full changelog below. 

I want to thank all of the thousands of folks who have stuck around through the development of JS8Call. It has been a fun journey and there’s tons more to come! Stick around in the list if you want to have “early access” to any of the new features developed.”
