Setting the Contest Mode
- FT Roundup Home
To put WSJT-X in the RTTY Roundup contest mode, open Settings and go to the Advanced tab page. Check the box marked “Special operating activity: Generation of FT8 and MSK144 message”. Enable “ARRL RTTY Roundup” and manually type in the US State or Canadian Province in the “Exch:” box. If you are outside the USA and Canada, type DX in the box. (Note: When DX stations enter DX in the box, serial numbers will be sent as the exchange.)
If you enter the wrong information in the Exch: box, it will show up in Red print. If you enter a correct state, province or DX entry, it will be in black print. When finished, click OK and you will be at the main WSJT-X window. You will notice RTTY is now showing in red in the middle of the screen to show you are in the ARRL RTTY Roundup contest mode.
When you return to the main screen, you will also notice a log window will open.
The program is now in the ARRL RTTY Roundup Contest mode.
