Let me get home and in the shack and we'll give it a try. Say, around dark this evening.

Pick a frequency and a time. I should be in or near the shack for a good bit of the evening working on the club newsletter, so I can monitor.

PSK on the Corsair should work, you just don't have "CAT" control. I used to run it on my Omni D just fine.

I did wait till the rig stabilized it's frequency... about 20 minutes or so.

I know nothing about the Corsair. Does it have any sort of auxiliary input jack or would Charles have to use the mic jack? If he used a SignaLink USB interface, that could take care of the PTT for him.

WTKX

Mic jack, prolly. I used a small audio transformer to get the level right, as the Omni D mic input was Hi-Z. Then, the headphone jack. Could hear audio if I wanted to by using the PC speakers. I have a Corsair, but have not put it on the air (yet).

I'm about to take my walk. Anyone want to try in about an hour? Find a frequency we can all use unless we're all Extras and I'll check here and go there.

RR OM. I'm going to be out in the shack about then too, maybe to try and QSO with John, KA4DPO. I'll post here once I've found a frequency. I'm only a general, so it's got to be in the upper part of the band.

WTKX
10-05-2011, 11:52 PM
Called a few times. Even ID'd with CW three times.

I hear a really faint voice there, if that's you... it's not gonna work.

It's not gonna work. Heard your ID. It was a series of binary code.

NQ6U

Last night you could follow the propagation. Middle Eastern and West Asian BCB were fading in and out. When they faded out, the eastern seaboard lit up and when they faded in, only the flame thrower domestic hams could be heard. Earlier, the British Isles and others in Europe could be heard calling CQDX.

KG4CGC
10-11-2011, 06:30 PM
Well some guys came in and started talking to each other while I was calling you. I told them that the frequency was in use. They were reasonably polite. Seems that we have run across a regular roundtable frequency.
Whatever. If we're going to do this we'll have to move.

How bout Canada?

KG4CGC
10-11-2011, 06:43 PM
Canada allows smutty curse words to be broadcast over the airwaves on regular TV. That's what started the last war when Saddam Hussein came back from Hell with Satan and tried to take over the world and bring about a 1000 year reign by Satan and his minions but Saddam pissed off Satan so he killed Saddam again and sent him to God to be with the Mormons. After that, Kenny was able to make Satan feel bad and also to understand his place in Hell so Satan went back to Hell and everyone quit blaming Canada.

All this because Mrs. Brovslosky was offended by words like shit and fuck in a movie that originated out of Canada by the 2 man comedy troop, Terrence and Phillip.
