“The idea with JS8Call is to take the robustness of FT8 mode and layer on a messaging and network protocol for weak signal communication on HF with a keyboard-to-keyboard interface.
JS8Call is heavily inspired by WSJT-X, Fldigi, and FSQCall and would not exist without the hard work and dedication of the many developers in the amateur radio community.”

JS8Call is a derivative of the WSJT-X application, restructured and redesigned for keyboard-to-keyboard message passing. It is not supported by nor endorsed by the WSJT-X development group. While the WSJT-X group maintains copyright over the original work and code, JS8Call is a derivative work licensed under and in accordance with the terms of the GPLv3 license. Source code can be found in this public repository: https://bitbucket.org/widefido/wsjtx/

Please Note that JS8Call is currently pre-release software

As such each version will have a limited lifespan, you should also be aware that there may be bugs in the software and that links on the websites may become out of date at times. If you want a stable version of the software then we ask you to please wait for Version 1.0 to be released.

The reason for the limited lifespan is because older versions of the software may be incompatible with the current release, for this reason we encourage you to sign up to groups.io to stay informed about the latest release Please follow the link https://groups.io/g/js8call to sign up.

Changelog:

Hey Folks! This is not a test, this is not a joke, it’s actually happening. The public release of JS8Call version 1.0 is here! You’ll find all of the public releases (now and future version) of JS8Call downloadable from this page: http://files.js8call.com/latest.html

For those following along at home, there were a few fixes from RC3 to 1.0 GA. I also added in one last feature…a “Check for Updates” on startup (by default) so we all know when a new version is released. There’s a full changelog below.

I want to thank all of the thousands of folks who have stuck around through the development of JS8Call. It has been a fun journey and there’s tons more to come! Stick around in the list if you want to have “early access” to any of the new features developed.

In the meantime, I wish you all the best QSOs and hope to see you on the air.

Cheers!

Best,
Jordan / KN4CRD
