New To Radio / Working with s7 -s9 noise
May 07, 2016, 05:56:50 am
Am going to post this discussion on multiple forums in hope to get more thinking about this

How does a beginner work with s7 to s9 constant HF noise levels?  Living in an apartment that is what I see always. 
There is no way to put up a large antenna outside, and even if I had that there is no guaranty that transmission/reception would work. 

My only break through has been jt65 and some CW.  Hoping this can be discussed more to reduce hobby frustration for beginners on the HF bands.

Digital Modes / HF APRS

Am surprised there is not more talk of messaging via the message mode of APRS.  You can even send a text via a gateway that resides on APRS to do just that.  Combine that with some HF capabilities and you can communicate anywhere in any conditions.

The latest I am looking at is called ROBUST  PACKET to get through when all other paths are too noisy.
