I was awake at 0300 this morning, so thought I might as well bag a pre-dawn activation of The Cloud G/SP-015. I couldn’t decided whether to go for 40m, 30m or 20m but finally opted for the latter as I parked up on Cloudside.
I operated from 0500 to 0720z and made just five QSOs! One on 20m FT8, one on 20m CW and three on 20m FT4. The first three were pretty satisfying though - PT2OP (Brazil) on FT8, A65IN (United Arab Emirates) on FT4, then T6AA (Afghanistan) on CW.
Ultimately I got fed up of the cold temperature, packed up and rushed down to the warmth of my car.
I admire your enthusiasm Tom!
Rather you than me Tom lol Not a peep from you today but loads of Japan and China
Just looking at the pictures I wondered … is this what madness looks like? or is it Long Covid??
This is what Madness looks like:
Never heard of the other band you mention.
The bloke on the left in the check suit and bowler hat was in Pointless last week. I hadn’t heard of that band either.
Rumours of a Pennines Bigfoot
How do you rate the MiniProSC @M1EYP?
Was thinking about getting another data cable/interface for the FT-817, presumably the same cable would work with the FT-857 too?

Yes, it does, I’ve done SSTV on both with that cable.
It’s really good. Much more “Plug and play” than the Wolphilink interface I had before. Regularly wkg /P on FT4, FT8, JT65, PSK31, PSK63, MSK144 and SSTV with it.
Hoping to add JS8 and RTTY to the repertoire soon!
I’ll add one to my Santa List.
Cheers, Mark. M0NOM
