To take part in the 2023 Dutch PACC contest with WSJT_X it is necessary to use the 2.6.0.GA version of WSJT_X This version makes it possible to use the Dutch provinces as multiplier, to add “PACC”in the CQ call and use the standard RST report. Look into the WSJT_X data on this page.
For the N1MM users in the contest is a User Defined Contest file (UDC-file) available.
MMTTY has been chosen as preferred RTTY software. Please look under “N1MM” and “MMTTY” for further information.
Installation instructions for non-PA stations
Installation and setup descriptions are available for PA and non-PA stations. PA stations use the instructions on the Dutch pages.
is an advanced, Windows based freeware program, designed to do contest logging and some general logging. Setup instructions are available for use in the PACCdigi contest.
The program MMTTY for RTTY use with N1MM + can be used with the correct settings for the PACCdigi. MMTTY can be found on the Hamsoft website
Both the FT8 and FT4 modes can be used in the contest. Both modes will be seen as the same digital mode. So if a station is worked in FT4 and FT8 the second qso will be treated as DUPE. Different frequencies are used for FT8 in the PACCdigi contest. It is useful to put those frequencies in the list so that WSJT_X does not always jump back to the standard FT8 frequency per band.
Use at least the 2.6.0 GA or a newer version of WSJT_X for this contest!
