    As a Ham Radio Elmer and former Telecom Engineer Having recently retired and returning to the hobby, I needed to gain an understanding of this new mode I found this such an easy and satisfying read I found that a couple of hours monitoring signals using WSJT X consolidated what I had learned.

    En las comunicaciones, del mundo de la radioafici n, se realizan desde el modo m s antiguo c digo Morse , en fon a, es decir en modo hablado, en modo TV aunque en modo de barrido lento en las bandas llamas HF y en modo normal en frecuencias altas y en modos digitales, que no para de evolucionar La modalidad FT8 es la modalidad m s actual que permite comunicaciones con muy poca potencia y a grandes distancias.En este libro se explica su funcionamiento y aplicaciones en modo sencillo y f cil de entender, a un precio muy reducido.

    Well written, clear information on digital modes May or may not make you an expert but at least you should know how it works and why so many find it exciting Not about how young you are 65 here or how long you ve had a license 18 months give or take , it s about pioneering, about finding the airwaves as exciting as they were 100 years ago and still being somewhere, somehow, on or close to the leading edge or at the very least, well informed.
