Going SOTA /P with WSJT-X


#41

It was a good E’s opening with signals across CW and SSB. I did manage to copy you intermittently and therefore I am now the top Data SWL in England (3rd Worldwide) :wink:

FT8 is a good trade off mode between weak signals and fast transmission times (saving battery power when portable) , although I still prefer the now little used JT9.

Give me a call next time Ian, if only to speed my QSO rate up a bit - it needs it!


#43

I would have called yesterday, but your signal was up and down with me. Sometimes -03db and next slot -17db and then nothing for 5 or 10 mins, rinse and repeat. If I’m in the shack, I’ll certainly keep a lcd screen out for you.

Lots of activity across UK and Europe on 6m FT8 right now. Rather good fun this!


#45

Having another go around 1200z today. Anyone want to try a 6m FT8 S2S?


#46

Cant give you an S2S (portable ops on 6m is not allowed in Germany) but I’ll give a listen from the home station.
