A big thanks to Tip, WA5UFH for tirelessly working on keeping all of this current through September 2012!
In North America, 50.260 MHz, 144.140 MHz and 222.085 MHz are calling not operating frequencies for WSJT.
PSK2K tentative calling frequencies in North America are 50.280 MHz and 144.180 MHz.
Dan (N5TM) has created an excellent new PJ Client for use on the PingJockey website which really speeds things up.

This site supports the use of all meteor scatter amateur radio software and propagation modes. Including SSB, CW and the digital modes on 50 Mhz and above. If your interest is in HF modes, check out JT65-HF.
Here is a link to an article written by Joe Taylor K1JT in QST where he introduces WSJT.
The WSJTGROUP sponsors (1) Activity Periods (2) Contests and (3) Awards.
The certificate available is the “Super 7’s Meteor Scatter Group” 10K Award. We are looking for a volunteer to resume the Century Grid Award (CGA), and the Initial QSO Award (IQA). We promote the Off-Set method of calling CQ on recognized calling frequencies. (Six Meters 50.260 & Two Meters 144.140 & 222.085 MHz) Emphasis is on quality. The proper use of the Standard Operating Procedures and the Ping Jockey logger is encouraged.
The group has developed a Weak Signal Protocol for VHF / UHF contesting. To assist new operators a valuable tool provided is the “Back Scatter Calculator”.
By sharing the Current Standings for the CGA, IQA and 10K certificates we encourage individual stations to be competitive and make
self improvements. The posting of contacts completed during meteor showers is a valuable tool. These contacts are grouped into two lists (1) Contacts less than 1200 miles per band completed for specific showers & contacts greater than 1200 miles plus 222 / 432 MHz contacts.
Pushing the distance envelope is encouraged. Know what is possible with High Speed Meteor Scatter! (Distance wise that is, don't claim to work what is impossible)
Attention HSMS Rovers / Portable Stations. If you are going to be taking a trip sent us your data for posting to the Rover Calendar.
Documenting HSMS contacts: To submit contacts for the ms databases send in all data for each database field to the link below.
Real time schedule ... (PRIMARY Site) PJ Central for WSJT, (Secondary Site) with emphasis on PSK2K: N5TM’s Site.
Planning to operate CQ? We see this reminder at the top of PJ "Remember, in North America, 50.260 MHz and 144.140 MHz are calling not operating frequencies." Knowing how to properly call CQ is just as important as knowing where to call CQ.
In the past, several methods have been employed BUT since the release of WSJT 9 the standard method is now CQ 280 K1JT. (The Up / Dn methods should no longer be used)
