Digital Communications

Basically Digital communication is based in to connect your Transceiver to your PC for to send Data (files, comments, photos, etc.) to other Stations. You can send photos (SSTV), do a chat (packet, RTTY...), send and receive files, do DX, digital CW, etc. Finally to do Contacts by radio, but in a diferent Way.

You can practise this with equipment you have now, your transceiver and your PC. Is necessary only a small interface to join they, as for example a modem for radio, a TNC or simply your PC Sound Card (for last one is necesary a simple home made wire with PTT conmutator).

I use a PC Core i3 3000Mhz and modem SB-1000 USB by CG Antenna but I have still my old Modem Sitelco PRS 1.200 K under Windows 98, two TNC inside my Kenwood equipments and a home made adaptor for sound card. I started using an old 386 with 2Mb of Ram on MS-Dos and windows 3.1, But is clear that if you use better PC you would obtain better results and nowadays there are a lot of very good programs.

On my CB guide you will find a few frequencies for Digital Conmunication on 27Mhz, to learn more about Digital modes Click here.
