Just Listen to Me – What do Digital Modes Sound Like?

Our friend John NZ9Z emailed remarking how neat the BARTG resource listed the ARRL Contest Rate Sheet was (BTW Highly recomend you subscibe to the Contest Rate Sheet – it always has something for everyone).

Often new hams and amateurs first starting in Digital Modes ask what does a mode sound like and here is the BARTG Link John NZ9Z mentioned and several others:

The British Amateur Radio Teledata Group (BARTG) wibsite on what the different digital modes sound like:

KB9UKD’s exceptional collections of large number of audio samples of different digital modes, including many non-amateur modes (Nextel, TETRA, Pagers… dozens & dozens):

The Amateur Radio link compendiums list more sites or of course you let google be your friend to find for more sites with samples.
