WSJT-JT44/JT65 For EME and Tropo Usage

This Page Also Applies To Using WSJT-JT44/JT65 Mode For Tropo Use.

Also check out the main WSJT/FSK441 section on this web site.
There is lots of info there that applies to all WSJT modes including JT44.

Just for FYI for "EME"
On 144mhz CW EME the Eastern most station normally goes 1st 2 min sequence.
432mhz CW EME the Western most station normally goes first with a 2.5 min.

On CW type EME skeds it is common for some EME stations to 
want you to
always go 1st (no matter who normally would go 1st) so that can figure out  if they
receive you as a vertical
or horizontal signal (Faraday/Spatial rotation).
Also on regular
CW EME it is also common for people to run other than the standard 2 min. on 144,
and 2.5 min. on 432 sequences.

Because of this I always make sure to ask the other station who they want to go 1st
no matter what is normal for a band.
