    I have an RS-918 and R928+ with FreeDV included in the radio.
    The current firmware is showing FreeDv 1600.
    So I guess it is not compatible with 700C or D.
    Will download and install FreeDV on my shack computer and will try it on my TS590 this weekend.

    Need the sponsors to realign or add to the proposed frequencies to match the General portions of the US band plan to maximize participation.

    Looking forward to participating in the event.

    I've got a month to get my extra... ;) But seriously, general frequencies would help.


    How do you enter FreeDV qso's into LotW? I've read some people using "phone" and others "SSB". There doesn't appear to be a "digital voice" option (or "FreeDV").

    The issue is the frequency used for TV is weather sensitive, not the mode.

    Also Digital Voice software like FreeDV belong in the digital sub-bands. They use less bandwidth than the Winlink Pactor modems. If the use takes off, then increase the size of the digital sub-bands. Don't mix digital with analog voice.

    Make no mistake, this "QSO Party" is to let analog users know that DV is here and sucking up some of their available bandwidth. Wrong way to do it.
