Got things hooked up correctly (I hope...) and at the moment am copying TFC on 3580 using WinWarbler.

Anyone game? I can QSY elsewhere if necessary.

If I'm up that late, you got it. The 'BTV should have a nice low angle of radiation on 40 and this may be doable.

No - tried to get some sleep so we could get up at 4AM and go to gym. Stomache had different plans for me, however. I'll be available all day today.

I'm trying to find out why my LT for Digital is haqnging up in xmit and sending wrong macros. As soon as I get it working right again, I'll get with you for a freq and give it a go. I suspect RF getting in, but I don't know why all of a sudden. I have ferrites on both ends of all cables. I'm going to get another T30 loaded up with the terminal programs and see if that any different. Kind of odd (as opposed to even) since I've never had this problem before.

Hope you get to feeling better.

Gotta go to the hospital and pick a ham friend of ours up.

Not long ago, we told her to break a leg.

Apparently she took me a little too seriously. :roll:

K7SGJ
12-28-2011, 02:56 PM
Probably a good thing you didn't tell her to jump off a cliff.


Maybe when you get back we can try a PSK31 QSO. Let me know as I'll be around and checking in here every so often.

I'm here at the moment but have to take care of a couple of errands before we run out of daylight.

My 10m vertical works somewhat on bands down to 40 . Pick a spot , I'll give it a try .

K7SGJ
12-28-2011, 07:04 PM
Just got back myself. Maybe we can give it a go tomorrow Russ. I need to make up some new jumper cables for the radios tonight. We can try 15 in the morning if you're around; it's been pretty active during the day.

In the shack for a while.

Our ham friend whom I mentioned earlier had to have surgery to repair her broken ankle so I spent the late morning and afternoon collecting her and getting her home. Heard AC4BB from Teh Zed on 14070 right as I was headed out the door so I didn't get a chance to work him.

I think everything is back together, now. Anyone want to try some PSK31?

Where are you? I'm on 14070 at the moment.

That's where I am, too Fred. Let me grab some more java, and get back into the shack and I'll give you a call. Give me 5 or so..

21071 calling now

N8YX
12-30-2011, 12:02 PM
Let me QSY and set the auto-tuner. Hang on.

N8YX
12-30-2011, 12:06 PM
I'm seeing M0SAS on the frequency.

K7SGJ
12-30-2011, 12:08 PM
I Don't see it hr. I can QSY if you find a quiet spot.

K7SGJ
12-30-2011, 12:10 PM
Pick another spot, I'll QSY

N8YX
12-30-2011, 12:11 PM
There are enough open channels on/around 21070 on which to work - let me know where you are and I'll tune for you.

ETA:

DX is crazy there today.

No joke. Hw abt 21070.384 Calling now

N8YX
12-30-2011, 12:15 PM
I think I saw you. Try again.

N8YX
12-30-2011, 12:20 PM
Something at 21071.6 is running wide enough to wipe most of the band out. GI4SNA is now on 070.384 - you copy that station at all?

K7SGJ
12-30-2011, 12:22 PM
Yeah. I also lost everything when the station started to xmt

N8YX
12-30-2011, 12:23 PM
Yeah. I also lost everything when the station started to xmt

That was/is M0SAS.

CM2RVA on 071.150 is pretty wide as well.

No, I copied KKB6F and AJ4OO

N8YX
12-30-2011, 12:32 PM
I have activity around 071.000 at the moment - and now 070.900.

K7SGJ
12-30-2011, 12:34 PM
Yep, I have a very solid signal at .943 N0SSC

K7SGJ
12-30-2011, 12:36 PM
Maybe we can try a little later. Maybe the Ozone Gods will be more favorable.

N8YX
12-30-2011, 12:36 PM
CW on frequency just wiped everything out.

Think maybe I'll take a couple of Vicodin and elevate my arm for a bit. Thanks for the try.

15 is a little long for us today - 20 might be a better bet later this afternoon.

I've got FLDigi running on the laptop right now, solid copy on several QSOs on 20.

Anyone up for some PSK later tonight or over the weekend?

I just set up my rig blaster. Would like to try it either now or later.

Let's set a time for Saturday. The boss wants me to spend some time with her tonight.

That's probably good choice because an everyday moment can turn romantic anytime. Anytime the moment is right.

I think Paul G. said he was mobiling this weekend, but I'm up for PSK in the later part of the day (Post 11AM) on 30M...

Just heading out to breakfast, the home center, and to look at some homeles dogs. I'll check back when we get home. I just set my FT817 and IC703 up for digital, and want to give em a go.

I have to take a friend of mine to the airport around noon but when I get back I'm playing radio for the rest of the afternoon. 30M sounds fun.

Damn, I'm working today, but if anyone's around this evening (~03:00 UCT) I'm up for a cue-so.

Works for me. NAQP is CW tonight, so we ought to be able to find something somewhere on another mode.

I actually have my rig up right now, on very low power, running it off my Heath variable power supply. I can eek about 10 watts out of it. Anyone up for some PeeeeSK?

I'm calling somewhere around 14.125 right now....

Try 14070 or thereabouts, and we're way too close for 20M to work.

Let me flip the digi-modes rig on and see what's happening there.

RTTY on one side and W1AW on the other.
