Amongst the ways we can receive (and transmit) information are the digital modes. One of the popular modes is called FT8. The program WSJT-X that I use is capable of coding and decoding that FT8 protocol. Using that program I received (and was able to decode) the stations in the table below.
In the picture you can see WSJT-X on the middle screen. Another program, that works in conjunction with WSJT-X is ‘GridTracker‘. You see that on the right monitor. It plots the contacts on a map by placing pins. This is a very nice way of combining amateur radio and computers.
On the left screen you can see an online lightning tracker. I heard some static and it was storming a bit, so I decided to keep an eye out for nearby thunderstorms…
