Data transmission, digital transmission or digital communications is the transfer of data (a digital bit stream or a digitized analog signal) over a point-to-point or point-to-multipoint communication channel.

There is a lot of talk about ham radio and it’s proven record of getting the message through, especially in areas impacted by disasters. During Hurricane Katrina: ham radio operators were so effective at providing communications that ham radio was specifically praised in the closing report by the U.S. Congress.

After the massive “Christmas Tsunami” that swept away entire islands throughout the South Pacific and related seas, it was ham radio operators and sailors with their radios who sent out the first reports of the massive damage and then provided long range communication to coordinate the relief supplies coming IN, because commercial infrastructure (normal power, phones, and the internet) had been wiped-out. Ham radio was about the only method of communication that still worked. Most of this communication was done by hams who hooked their computers to their radios. We call this ‘digital communication’.

When most people think of ham radio, they think of maybe two things: Morse code or voice, but one of the best-kept secrets of ham radio is our ability to ‘talk’ keyboard-to-keyboard for hundreds or even thousands of miles over the shortwave radio! Unlike an internet chat room, hams do not require the Internet or phones to do it. We ‘chat’ directly with each other using only our radio equipment and the Earth’s “ionosphere” that bends our radio waves back to earth many hundreds and even thousands of miles away. This type of ham technology is lumped together under the phrase: “digital modes”. When we say that we ‘work digital’ or ‘use digital modes’, it means that we talk computer to computer via radio and this is VERY helpful during an emergency when normal ‘infrastructure dependent’ communication often fails.

The main advantage of digital instead of voice is that digital cuts through the noise and weak signal conditions which would prohibit a voice conversation at the same power level. That last part is important, because in an emergency you may not have a lot of spare electrical power for high powered transmitters. In general, digital modes work when a voice signal would never get through. Morse code does this too and in some cases, it does it better. However, some people are afraid that they could never learn the Morse code (not true and I’ll show you how in a later article!). So, digital modes are STRONG when the signals are weak and very little training is required to learn to use digital modes effectively! This is why digital ham radio is so hugely popular for long range ham radio communication.

Here is their recommended band plan for two meters -

2 Meters CW/SSB/Digital 144.00-144.05 EME (CW) 144.05-144.06 Propagation beacons (old band plan) 144.06-144.10 General CW and weak signals 144.10-144.20 EME and weak signal SSB 144.140 WSJT FSK441/JT44 calling frequency 144.110 to 144.160 WSJT FSK441 or JT44 (around this area) 144.131 PropNet http://www.PropNET.org(with +1500hz PSK audio) 144.150 SSB PSK/HELL/MFSK16/SSTV 144.200 National SSB calling frequency 144.20-144.30 General SSB operation, upper sideband 144.275-144.300 New beacon band 2 Meters FM Digital modes 145.500 SSTV (National SSTV Simplex FM Frequency) 145.550 FM PSK31, Hellschreiber

They've recently been trying to reinvigorate Propnet on two meters.

Of course, there are lots of other modes in use there.
