Name your time, place and mode... I've got a vertical that performs well on 40-10 meters, a dipole that'll work on 80-20 and a radio capable of PSK or phone.

How about now?

20 or 40? Not by a radio, but can be. Let me know what's open

Give me a few more minutes. I have to edit and upload a show before I can have playtime and my editor keeps crashing.

I could hear you, but no real copy

I was hearing you OK. My microphone sucks. The output is really low and even with speech processing I'm only pushing about 20 watts. Let me switch some things over here.

I was hearing you. Try calling once again. Just want to see if I can still copy you.

OK so who else is up to doing some actual ham radio? Before I decide to go smoke a bowl and pass out...

I'm toked and tuned on 7247... let's give it a try. :)

EDIT: Called and listened on both the vertical and full-wave dipole broadside to NY ...nil. :(

My son is awake, and it's his computer, so I'm off the Island.

Will continue to monitor. :)

I tuned away for a bit... Listening now but there's a couple of people on 7247.6

Nothing here, except adjacent channel splatter.

Went down to the CW portion and worked a K2 in Alden. NY.

Conditions are very poor. He was down in the noise,

and I had to light off the 500 W amp for him to copy.

It's Sunday morning, so I'm hanging out on 14.295 with the OMIK gang.
