Again conditions on HF are poor today. I tried some PSK-31 on 40 and 20m, but I only worked S51JS and SV1DAR. This afternoon I see a lot of JT9-1 signals on 20 meter. Well, the JT9 mode seems to be growing in popularity.
The software is regular updated, and becomes better every time. What I like to see changed: when I select a call to answer, the transmitter should be activated, just like JT65-HF. Now I have to push a button to activate the transmitter, and often I forget to do so. I like to see one button to clear the fields when the qso is done. Now I have to do it manual.
This afternoon I worked TF3G (Iceland) with JT9-1 on 20 meter. (see photo)
Though condx are poor, I am spotted in VK by VK3AMA with JT9-1, so JT9-1 is a very promising mode. Someone mailed me last week: soon the QRO guys will discover this mode too. A little bit cynic but I am afraid also that this will happen.
