Mooneer, thank you. I had a zoom session this morning and everyone was so helpful getting my IC-7300 configured for FreeDV. Thank you everyone. I'm listening to freeDV right now on 14.236 mhz. Occasionally I'll hear garbled speech but not very often.
Walter told me this morning that an effort is underway to require less signal strength when trying to receive. I think that's what I am most looking forward to. As mentioned before, I can easily communicate using JS8, Winlink, and WSJTx. I hope the technology can be such that FreeDV will allow me to also use it, even with my HOA restrictions.
Wonderful ham radio software.
