M0PWX's Digital Modes and Frequencies Page

This Page aims to help others who are new to the hobby or new to digital modes

One of the things i had problems with when i started listening, and once i passed my foundation license was "what frequency do i find something on?" or "what is that signal on that frequency?"

Some things like FT8 are easy as they come pre-populated in the WSJT-x software, but i you stumble on the ghostly sound of FT8/FT4 but don't know what mode it is you don't know to use WSJT-x to decode / send it how do you kno what it is or the software you need to decode it?

All of the frequencies listed below are relevant to UK Amateurs, if you are not in the UK then check your license / local regulations as not all bands and frequencies are permissible in some countries

All links to software go to the main / Software Authors page

If you have any frequencies you would like me to add, then please email me @ m0pwx at outlook dot com
