JT65-HF — an ‘Odd’ but Fun Digital Mode
In case you’ve never seen it before, let’s explore a seemingly-little-known digital mode called JT65-HF. In some ways, it is very similar to other digital modes such as PSK31, but it some ways, it is very much different.
First, the similarities. The equipment required is the same as other digital modes, that is, the rig, the antenna, the computer with software, and a sound card interface. None of that will be new to you if you’ve ever done digital before.
It is also a low-power mode, even more so than PSK31. On the upper HF bands, you’ll often run 5W-10W or so. On the lower bands, 5W-10W will often do the trick, but for DX you might well crank it up to 30W-40W if really needed. Some JT65-HF users are committed to 5W max, period. It is important not to crank up the power too much because it will make it hard or impossible for others to hear weaker signals, just like on PSK31. In most cases, 10W will be sufficient. This is an extremely efficient weak-signal mode.
