I received a report for bad conditions at Gaviota yesterday. Based on my 4 QSOs out at Chiriaco Summit, and this news, I am going to cancel my trip to Gaviota.
I will be on today from Signal Hill DM03 and a hill in Glendale for DM04. Maybe I will do Santa Monica Mountains too, just so I can experience the joy of the 101 freeway.
I am glad I was prepared for FT8, because it is the primary contest mode. There are still bugs in WSJT with the compound /R callsign, so I had to take the /R off. PLEASE everybody,
turn the NA Contest Mode ON. It is now a 2 step process ( - Turn VHF Features ON in the General Settings. Then check the "NA Contest Mode" from your main screen. Make sure you are on WSJT-x 1.9.1 . Anyone for FT8 on 144.174?
Lets hope for a better day on the VHF bands today!
