An Introduction to WSJT-X Presentation Notes


I have give three presentations about WSJT-X. In those presentations, I have included a tinyurl link (e.g., that people can write down, that redirects them to  a google document with all the notes they need. This allows them to enjoy the presentation without having to try and write everything I talk about down.

I have moved these notes over from the Google document to this post instead. Hope you enjoyed my presentation!
