10M RTTYが FT8 Roundupに模様替えしました。

https://www.rttycontesting.com/


FT8 Roundup Rules
1. Objective: Amateurs worldwide contact and exchange QSO information with other amateurs using FT8 on 80, 40, 20, 15 and 10 meter bands. Any station may work any other station. Stations may be worked once per band. Participants must use WSJT-X version 2.0, release candidate RC4 or later, to ensure they are able to transmit and receive the exchange messages the event requires. See Rule 7 for more details.

2. Date and Contest Period: First full weekend of December. Begins 1800 UTC Saturday, ends 2359 UTC Sunday (December 1-2, 2018).

2.1. No entrant may operate more than 24 hours out of the 30-hour contest period.

2.2. The six hours of off time must be taken in no more than two blocks.

3. Entry Categories:

3.1. Single Operator: 100 watts transmitter output or less.

3.1.1. All entrants are allowed only one transmitted signal at any given time. (SO2R is allowed but you cannot transmit on both radios during the same cycle.) Anyone found to be transmitting two signals at the same time will be reclassified as Checklog.

3.2. Multioperator: 100 watts transmitter output or less.

3.2.1 Includes those that receive assistance with logging or relief operators, etc.

3.2.2 Multioperator stations are limited to 6 band changes (maximum) in any clock hour.

3.2.3 The clock hour is from zero through 59 minutes.

3.2.4 Band changes are defined so that, for example, a change from 20 meters 15 meters and then back to 20 meters constitutes two band changes.

3.2.5. All entrants are allowed only one transmitted signal at any given time.

4. Exchange:

4.1. United States: Signal report and State.

4.2. Canada: Signal report and Province.

4.3. DX: Signal report and consecutive serial number, starting with 001.

5. Scoring:

5.1. QSO Points: Count one point for each completed QSO.

5.2. Multipliers: Each US state (except KH6 and KL7) plus the District of Columbia (DC), Canadian provinces/territories: NB (VE1, 9), NS (VE1), QC (VE2), ON (VE3), MB (VE4), SK (VE5), AB (VE6), BC (VE7), NWT (VE8), NF (VO1), LB (VO2), NU (VYØ), YT (VY1), PEI (VY2) and each DXCC country. KH6 and KL7 count only as separate DXCC entities.

5.2.1. Multipliers count only once (not once per band).

5.2.2. The US and Canada do not count as DXCC entities.

6. Reporting:

6.1. 7-Day Deadline: All entries must be postmarked or uploaded by 2359 UTC December 9, 2018.

6.2. Logs in Cabrillo format format must be emailed to ft8-ru@cqww.com.

6.3. The Cabrillo entries include the header and the complete QSO list.

7. Miscellaneous: Participants must use WSJT-X version 2.0 RC4 or later to ensure they are able to transmit and receive the exchange messages the event requires. Unattended operation is not permitted. Utilizing QSO/macro automations is not permitted. Fox-and-Hounds mode is not permitted (each contact must be carried out in a one-to-one mode.)

It is highly recommended that you read the WSJT-X 2.0 Quick Start Guide before operating the contest.

Suggested frequencies are 3.590-3.600, 7.080-7.100, 14.130-14.150, 21.130-21.150 and 28.160-28.200 MHz. Set the WSJT-X dial frequency to a multiple of 2 kHz, for example 7.082 MHz.

Note: The WSJT-X development team proposes that run stations should select integral multiples of 200 Hz as their audio transmit frequencies and check the TX EVEN/1ST box. Search and-pounce (S+P) stations should call at frequencies 0, 60, or 120 Hz above the run frequency. The WSJT-X user interface has tools to make these settings easy. Tap your
F3 or F5 keyboard keys to see concise lists of relevant keyboard and mouse shortcuts.

8. Awards: Certificates will be awarded to all participants and can be downloaded online when available.

ついに!

 WSJTXがrc4になってしまいました。

 とにかく大きく変わったのは

 - Remove all support for the legacy FT8 protocol

 と言う事で以前の?1.9の?FT8は消えたと言う事です。

 散々楽しませてくれたJoeさんへのお礼に一刻でも早く古いFT8をなくすことでしょう。

 今日からは2000Hzより上でrc4で出ていますのでお会いしましょう。

Subject: [wsjt-devel] Candidate release WSJT-X 2.0.0-rc4
----

A fourth candidate release ("RC4") of WSJT-X 2.0 is now available for
download and use by beta testers.

Changes in RC4 relative to RC3 include the following:

- Fix the "cannot open file fort.81" bug
- Avoid too many redirect loops related to openSSL support
- Fix the auto-generated messages for nonstandard callsigns
- Remove all support for the legacy FT8 protocol
- Disallow selecting MSK144 with RTTY or Field Day messages active
- Correct and expand support for color highlighting decoded messages
- ESC key aborts a QSO, clears DX Call, and selects Tx6
- Disable "nextCall" procedure for RTTY contest; it still needs work
- Correct a flaw in handling MSK144 Sh messages
- Prevent Fox from inadvertently toggling Tx 1st/Even
- Re-organize the Fox/Hound/Contest selection boxes
- Improve the validators for contest exchange boxes
- Disable Tx after 5 minutes of no mouse movement
- Remove end-of-line AP info when using contest messages
- Fix the Sent and Rcvd exchanges sent to N1MM+ and ADIF log
- Don't auto-log a QSO with incomplete exchange info
- Fix two sequencing flaws after double-clicks on a decoded msg
- New facilities for Contest and Fox-mode logging

Be sure to invoke "Settings | General | Colors | Reset Highlighting"
on your first program start with this version.

The "Quick-Start Guide to WSJT-X 2.0" has been revised and extended. If
Be sure to read this entire guide before using RC4:
http://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/k1jt/Quick_Start_WSJT-X_2.0.pdf

As described in the Quick-Start Guide, at this time we recommend moving
MSK144 activity back to the standard 6-meter working frequencies: 50.360
MHz in IARU Region 1, 50.260 in Regions 2 and 3. We recommend also
starting to use the v2.0 FT8 protocol in the conventional FT8 sub-bands
— for example, dial frequencies 7.074 and 14.074 MHz on 40 and 20
meters. Inevitably this will cause some initial confusion: users of
v1.9.1 and earlier will be unable to decode transmissions from users of
v2.0.0-rc4, and vice-versa. To minimize this cross-protocol interference
we suggest initially using the RC4 release at audio Tx frequencies 2000
Hz and higher. As more users upgrade their software to RC4 or later,
activity can gradually move downward in audio frequency. By December 10
or very soon afterward, everyone should upgrade to the full WSJT-X 2.0
general availability (GA) release.

Download links for RC4 on Windows, Linux, and macOS can be found on the
WSJT-X web page http://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/k1jt/wsjtx.html

A one-hour "FT8 mock contest" will be held next week: November 20,
0200-0300 UTC (that's Monday evening, Nov 19, NA time). Watch for a
separate announcement with more details.

We look forward to your feedback on WSJT-X 2.0-rc4. Reports should be
sent to the wsjt-devel email list, wsjt-devel@lists.sourceforge.net. You
must subscribe to the list in order to post there.

2SC460と言えばトリオの無線機に多く使用されているトランジスタです。

 その2SC460と言えば1970年代ローノイズをうたって出てきた日立の角形でオレンジ色のトランジスタですがなぜか?何か月か使用すると軒並みノイズ発生器になると言う2SC458LGCの親戚のトランジスタですね。

 当時ビクターを始めとした2SC458LGCを使用したアンプは多く交換に大変でした。

 僕の使っていたアンプも交換した覚えがあります。

 名前が同じでもパッケージが角形ではない半丸のTO−92の物は改良されたものだと思います。

 さて、その

 2SC460ランクBですがボントン等にはまだ在庫があると言いますがわざわざ怪しい同じ名前の石を使う必要もないので互換品を探したいのですが、これがなかなか少ないのです。

 Ftが250MHz以上ある安い石が少ないという感じです。

 10MHz以下の中間周波増幅器や発振器だったらFt80MHzの2SC1815で十分ですが問題が出てくるところも多くあります。

 そこで出てくるのが互換表に出てくる2SC1675ランクLですが、これが結構高いのです。

 まぁごまかせば秋月電子でも使えるものは多くあるのですがね。

 安さということでフェイスブックのグループでも話題になっている中国のセカンドソースを購入してみました。

 中国のセカンドソースでもランクLは高いので僕はランク指定なしにしました。

 https://www.aliexpress.com/item/100-new-origina-C1675-2SC1675-TO-92-Free-shipping-best-match/32729378611.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.5c9a4c4dhNGqjn

 そして届いたものはランクKでした。

 何人か注文しましたがみんなランクKでした。

 そして、hfeをチェックしてみました。

 十本サンプルチェックしたところ150 +− 10 に入っていました。

 これだったら十分2SC460ランクBの代わりになると思います。

皆様も1000本いかがでしょうか。

久しぶりに全市全郡コンテストにちょっこっと出てみました。

 国内のコンテストではCTESTWINを少し使っていましたがVSPEで分配してCATを使ったりすると実用にならないくらいトラブルが多いので海外のコンテストに使っているN1MM+を使って初めて国内コンテストに出てみました。

 N1MM+はいつも使っているので問題はないのですが国内コンテストの設定ファイルが定められていないので半分手探りの状態で設定しました。

 全市全郡コンテストではudcは内蔵の「JADOMESTIC」を使ってsecは

JI1FLBさんのGithub
 https://github.com/JI1FLB

 の中から全市全郡コンテストのsecを使用させていただきました。

 JI1FLBさん ありがとうございました。

 本来ならば

 http://www.jarl.org/Japanese/1_Tanoshimo/1-1_Contest/jcc_jcg_ku201810.xls

 の市、郡、区ナンバーをja.secにアップデートすれば良いのですが2018/10/05の時点では那珂川市がなかったので少々さぼってJI1FLBさんのファイルを使用させていただきました。

 2018/10/11の時点では那珂川市は含まれているようです。

 また、JARLの「市・郡・区 番号表(別表)」得点の大元でありますし大変大事な物ですので早い時期でのアップデートといつの時点でのデータなのかとアップデート日時の表示をお願いしたい物です。

 参加部門が「JADOMESTIC」では160mから10mとVHF等々の部門しか選択できないので本当のオールバンド部門や80m〜23cmに出るというのはどうするんだろうと思っています。

 udcを記述すれば160m〜6mと言う部門は作る事が出来るようですがそれ以上はまだわかっていません。

 N1MMのMLのFLBさんにお願いして教えて頂きたいなとも思っています。

 また、コンテストMLで訪ねてみたいとも思っています。

 今回は6mはログ問題であきらめて80m〜10mを運用しました。

 ログの提出は

 http://www.jarl.org/Japanese/1_Tanoshimo/1-1_Contest/e-log_cabrillo.txt

 に説明されているように


   (1) LOG窓上でマウス右クリック
   (2) Change Timestamp of the entire log by a fixed amount を選択
   (3) 540(540分)と入力して、OK

  としておいてキャブリロ出力すると、JST化したキャブリロが作れます。
  ファイルは、Call.logのファイル名の表示になります。


 でJST表示変更にして通常の通りCall.logのファイル名のキャブリロ形式を出力して「JARLコンテスト 電子ログサマリー作成ページ」を使ってログとサマリーシート作成して送ります。

JARLコンテスト 電子ログサマリー作成ページ

 http://contest.jarl.org/summarymaker.htm

 この「JARLコンテスト 電子ログサマリー作成ページ」は大変よく出来ており他のページには他の色々な事柄を考慮して説明してるため説明に一貫性がありませんが実際には「JST表示のキャブリロ形式と総得点」があればログとサマリーシート作成して送ることが出来ます。

 ここで唯一気になるのは「総得点」です。

 恐らくサマリーシートが含まれているので「総得点」が必要なのだと思いますが、もし、自己採点した総得点が間違っていた場合にどうなるのかがとても不安に思います。

 幸い全市全郡コンテストでは単純に全バンド共通の一局一点とマルチプライヤー区分なのでN1MM+で計算表示された総得点で良いと思いますが周波数によって得点数が違ったり 周波数によってマルチプライヤーの対象が変わったりするコンテストでは正確な総得点をもとめるというのはけっこう難しいと思います。

 正確な総得点をもとめるために他のログアプリケーションを使うという方法もありますがせっかくログに「キャブリロ形式」が使えるのだからもう少しスッキリする方法はないのでしょうかね。

 この件はいつかJARLのコンテスト係さんに伺いたいと思っています。

 後は名前や住所を入力してクリックするだけでログとサマリーシート作成して送信することが出来ます。


 1局目にFLBさんを呼んだら自局のコンテストナンバーの設定を間違っていたりで大慌てでした。
 FLBさんありがとう。失礼しました。

 今回は?今回も?友達限定のS&Pしかしませんでしたが皆様ありがとうございました。

Subject: [wsjt-devel] Mock "FT8 Roundup" Contest
----

A one-hour "practice contest" will be held next week using the FT8 mode
and the ARRL RTTY Roundup rules.

Thursday, 27 September 0200-0259 UTC (Wednesday evening, NA time)

Dial frequencies 7.078 and 14.078, everyone works everyone.

To participate you must use WSJT-X 2.0. The Windows installation package
is linked at the bottom of this web page:
https://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/k1jt/wsjtx.html
(Note that this is a temporary release candidate, not the final full
release of WSJT-X 2.0.)

The Quick-Start Guide to WSJT-X 2.0 is here:
https://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/k1jt/Quick_Start_WSJT-X_2.0.pdf

IMPORTANT:
1. On the *Settings | Advanced* tab, be sure to check the boxes *Always
generate 77-bit messages*, *Decode only 77-bit messages*, and *ARRL RTTY
Roundup*. In the field labeled "Exch" enter the 2- or 3-letter
abbreviation for your state or province (US/Canadian stations) or DX if
you are not in the US or Canada.

2. Be sure that 7.078 and 14.078 appear in your selectable frequency
list when for FT8 mode. You might need to do a *Reset* on the *Settings
| Frequencies* tab.

3. We do not recommend using a compound or nonstandard callsign in this
event.


Post results and comments here so we can all learn from an actual FT8
contest-like experience. Note that planning is underway for at least two
dedicated FT8 contests to be potentially held in the next few months.
Next week’s practice run will help to inform those plans.

If you are not already subscribed, you may wish to join the email list
wsjt-devel:

Subject: [wsjt-devel] Candidate release WSJT-X 2.0.0-rc2
----

A second candidate release of WSJT-X 2.0, is now available for download and use by beta testers. Changes in WSJT-X 2.0.0-rc2 relative to -rc1 include the following:

- Corrected a flaw that encoded a message's first callsign as
hexadecimal telemetry data if the call consisted only of letters
A-F and digits 0-9.

- Corrected program logic that failed to identify certain callsigns
as "nonstandard".

- Fixed a bug that color-highlighted bare CQ messages (no grid
locator) as "New DXCC".

- Fixed a bug that failed to log Report Sent if MyCall is a
nonstandard call.

- Fixed a bug that generated incorrect MSK144 tones for certain
messages and caused a "memory" effect on stations receiving the
incorrect tones.

- Fixed several bugs that could cause certain Tx messages to crash
the program.

- Suppressed the display of certain illogical false decodes.

The "Quick-Start Guide to WSJT-X 2.0" has been updated. If you plan to use the beta-test release candidate, be sure to read this entire guide first:
http://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/k1jt/Quick_Start_WSJT-X_2.0.pdf


New features and enhancements in WSJT-X 2.0 relative to Version 1.9.1 are summarized here:

Download links for Windows, Linux, and macOS installation packages can be found on the WSJT-X web site

http://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/k1jt/wsjtx.html

We look forward to your feedback on WSJT-X 2.0-rc2. Reports should be sent to the wsjt-devel email list, wsjt-devel@lists.sourceforge.net. You must subscribe to the list to post there.

Reminder: A "mock contest" using FT8 mode and ARRL RTTY Roundup contest exchanges will be held tomorrow evening, NA time:
Thursday, 27 September 0200-0259 UTC (Wednesday evening, NA time)

A separate announcement about the mock contest will follow this one.

New Features in WSJT-X 2.0
September 17, 2018
--------------------------

This document is an update to the white paper "Plans for WSJT-X
Version 2.0" that was publicly distributed on July 26, 2018. It
describes the most important enhancements in WSJT-X 2.0 relative to
version 1.9.1.

A majority of new program features involve the FT8 and MSK144
protocols. Both modes have been upgraded to use use 77-bit
information payloads rather than the 75 bits of the older FT8 protocol
or 72 bits of JT4, JT9, JT65, MSK144, and QRA64. Cyclic redundancy
checks (CRCs) that protect against false decodes have been increased
from 12 to 14 bits (FT8) and from 8 to 13 bits (MSK144). These
changes bring many benefits, including support of structured messages
optimized for the following special types of QSOs and exchanged
information:

1. NA VHF Contest operation with full and transparent support of grid
locators and "/R" (Rover) callsigns

2. EU VHF Contest operation with the exchange of 6-digit locators, QSO
serial numbers, and "/P" (portable) callsigns

3. ARRL Field Day operation with standard Field Day exchanges such as
"6A SNJ"

4. ARRL RTTY Roundup operation with standard contest exchanges such as
"579 NJ" or "559 0071"

5. Compound and nonstandard callsigns (up tp 11 characters); no need
for distinctions about "Type 1" or "Type 2" prefixes/suffixes

6. A special "telemetry" message format for exchange of arbitrary
information up to 71 bits

7. All features of FT8 DXpedition mode, as in WSJT-X v1.9.1

Enhancements to the FT8 decoder ensure that in most situations
decoding sensitivity is slightly better than for the old protocol.
Symbol rates and occupied bandwidths are the same as before, and
false-decode rates are significantly lower. The decoding threshold
for MSK144 is a fraction of a dB higher than before, owing to the
slightly larger message payload and higher code rate.

OTHER PROGRAM ENHANCEMENTS: WSJT-X 2.0 has several other new features
and capabilities. The WSPR decoder has significantly better
sensitivity, by about 1 dB. Color highlighting of decoded messages
provides worked-before status for callsigns, grid locators, and DXCC
entities on a "by band" basis. Color highlighting can also identify
stations that have (or have not) uploaded their logs to "Logbook of
the World" (LoTW) within the past year. (Recent information from LoTW
for this purpose can be downloaded from the ARRL web site.)

WSJT-X 2.0 introduces no significant changes to any of the modes JT4,
JT9, JT65, QRA64, ISCAT, Echo, or FreqCal.

IMPORTANT: For the convenience of beta-testers, the first and second
release candidates -- releases with "-rc1" or "-rc2" in their names --
will have Rx and Tx capability for both the new FT8 protocol and the
older one. Starting with the third release candidate ("-rc3"), and in
the general-availability full release of WSJT-X 2.0, only the new
protocol will be supported. In contrast, the new MSK144 protocol
replaces the old one from the outset, without backward compatibility.
To minimize on-the-air confusion, it's important that users be aware
of these distinctions and the schedule for release of WSJT-X 2.0, as
detailed below.

MESSAGE FORMATS: The following table shows examples of message formats
supported by the new FT8 and MSK144 protocols. Parameters i3 and n3
(shown in the first column) are used in the software to define major
and minor 77-bit message types.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In the above list, callsigns enclosed in angle brackets (e.g.,
<PJ4/K1ABC>, <YW18FIFA>) are transmitted as hash codes. They will be
displayed correctly by receiving stations that have copied the full
callsign without brackets in a previous transmissiion. Otherwise the
receiving software will display <...>. Hash collisions are possible
but should be rare, and extremely rare within a particular QSO.

Some minimal message sequences that take advantage of the new 77-bit
formats are illustrated below. Model QSOs 1 and 2 are the same as
those used by the old FT8 and MSK144 protocols, and QSO number 3 is
the same as the existing FT8 DXpedition Mode. Model QSOs 4 through 9

RELEASE SCHEDULE: Candidate releases of WSJT-X 2.0 will have built-in
expiration dates after which they cannot be used. Target dates for
planned releases are as follows:

September 17: -rc1 (expires Oct 31)
October 15: -rc2 (expires Nov 30)
November 12: -rc3 (expires Dec 31)
December 10: GA Full release of WSJT-X 2.0

WSJT-X 2.0-rc1 provides the first chance for beta testers to use the
new 77-bit messages. It supports the old (v1.9.1) FT8 protocol as
well as the new message types illustrated above. To avoid QRMing
legacy FT8 users with incompatible messages they can't decode, and to
help concentrate testing activity into a few sub-bands, we recommend
using the new FT8 capabilities on the 40- or 20-meter bands at dial
frequencies 7.078 or 14.078 MHz. These frequencies are offered as FT8
alternatives on the drop-down frequency-selection control on the main
window.

The new MSK144 is fully functional for QSOs between any two stations
using a WSJT-X v2.0 release. MSK144 is not backward compatible with
earlier program versions. Therefore during the testing period,
approximately Sept 17 through December 10, we recommend using the new
MSK144 capabilities on 50.380 MHz (IARU Region 1) or 50.280 (Regions 2
and 3). By specific arrangement, or as soon as most regular users
have upgraded to a v2.0 release, MSK144 activity can be moved back to
50.360 (Region 1) or 50.260 (Regions 2 and 3).

By design, our proposed release schedule will make WSJT-X 2.0 usable
for all relevant ARRL operating events and Eurpoean VHF contests after
January 1, 2019.

Plans for WSJT-X Version 2.0
----------------------------

This white paper describes a number of important enhancements planned
for WSJT-X Version 2.0. Most of them involve the FT8 and MSK144
protocols, which will be upgraded to use use 77-bit information
payloads rather than the present 72 or 75 bits. This modest increase
in information content will make possible new message types that
support the following special types of QSOs and exchanged information:

1. NA VHF Contest operation with full and transparent support of grid
locators and "/R" (Rover) callsigns

2. EU VHF Contest operation with the exchange of 6-digit locators, QSO
serial numbers, and "/P" (portable) callsigns

3. ARRL Field Day operation with standard Field Day exchanges

4. ARRL RTTY Roundup operation with standard contest exchanges

5. Better and more user-friendly support for compound and nonstandard
callsigns

6. A special "telemetry" message format for exchange of arbitrary
information (up to 71 bits)

Decoding sensitivity for the new messages will be essentially the same
as for the FT8 and MSK144 modes presently in WSJT-X v1.9.1. The
existing FT8 DXpedition mode will still be supported, and a more
powerful DXpedition mode may be offered as well.

In this document we'll call the new FT8 protocol "FT8+". It will be a
superset of the FT8 implemented in v1.9.1, providing at least
temporary compatibility and inter-operability with older program
versions. We may decide to remove support for old-style 72- and
75-bit messages after a specified switchover interval.

In contrast, the new MSK144 protocol will replace the old one without
backward compatibility. We believe the smaller and more specialized
group of MSK144 users will upgrade quickly and not find this
restriction to be a problem.

Here are some examples of message formats that will be supported by
FT8+ and MSK144 in WSJT-X v2.0. The list is not exhaustive.
Parameters i3 and n3 (shown in column 1) are used in the software to
define major and minor 77-bit message types.

Here are some examples of minimal QSO sequences that take advantage
(where necessary) of the new protocol capabilities. Model QSOs number
1 and 2 are supported already, with the present FT8 and MSK144
protocols, and number 3 with the existing FT8 DXpedition Mode. Model
QSOs 4-8 (and others not illustrated here) require the new protocols
with 77-bit messages.

To minimize confusion that's likely to arise during a switchover from
v1.9.1 to v2.0, we propose to follow a well advertised schedule:

"RC1 Date" -- perhaps as early as September 15, 2018?
-------------------------------------------------------

This will be the first chance for beta testers to try WSJT-X using the
77-bit messages. We may restrict this opportunity to specific
volunteer testers, and we'll probably include an "upgrade by
xxxx_date" message to remind people that they are using a release
intended only for testing.

FT8+ will support the old (v1.9.1) protocol as well as the new message
types outlined above. To avoid QRMing legacy FT8 users with messages
they can't decode, we'll recommend testing FT8+ on frequencies
formerly used for JT9.

MSK144 will be fully functional between any two stations using the RC1
software, but it will not be backward compatible with earlier program
versions.

"RC2, RC3,... Date" -- perhaps in October?
--------------------------------------------

As needed, depending on results of testing.

GA Release Date -- perhaps in November?
---------------------------------------------

Official General Availability release of WSJT-X v2.0.0. The original
MSK144 protocol will be declared obsolete.


For reference: Dates of relevant upcoming ARRL contests
-------------------------------------------------------
VHF QSO Party: September 8-10, 2018
RTTY Roundup: January 5-6, 2019
VHF SS: January 19-21, 2019

Our proposed schedule should make WSJT-X Version 2.0 usable for
relevant ARRL operating events in 2019.
