Digital Communications for Amateur Radio

Presented by Tom Ulrich WB2EUJ

With the advent of the 21st Century, the domain of Digital Communications became integrated with Amateur Radio.  This presentation offers a description of Digital Communication system building blocks including source coding, channel coding, forward error correction, and modulation.  With building blocks of digital communications in hand, the discussion moves to how these methods are applied to PSK31, QPSK31 and JT65.  Each mode is discussed in detail with the objective to demonstrate how the integrated functional blocks serve to provide robust and reliable communications.
