Data Modes (digimodes) with examples

Digital Modes

In the world of radio communications there are many varied methods of using digital signals, known as digimodes. Often argued as the earliest form of digital mode is Morse Code or CW as it is also known. In morse code an audible tone is either on or off. This equates to the digital (binary) states of 1 or 0 transmitted over the air. Modern digital communication is simply sending data bits consisting of 1’s or 0’s, in other words, on or off as in CW at extremely high speed. Read Complete Article...

In the past the only way amateur radio operators used to send data was using conventional analogue methods. This is often achieved by inserting the data stream as an audio signal in place of voice. It should be noted that this method of data transmission is far from dead, and is still thriving. Further information on data modes (digimodes) can be found on this page. Read Complete Article...
