Appreciate the clarification of the status, or lack thereof, of the "dx
window." I promise that I didn't try to chase anyone off any frequency,
except perhaps my cq freq if they got very close.
I was fortunate to quite recently acquire an FT-1000D, and just managed to
get the W8JI keyclick mod (thanks Tom) installed right before the contest.
I would appreciate any comments on the keying characteristics and tone of my
tx signal. To aid others who might want to implement this VERY easy mod, I
took some photos and posted them on my Web site with mod info (credit to
W8JI and K1ZM). I also posted some fairly crude, but dramatic, before and
after recordings of the keying. The page can be accessed at
Grateful for all the q's last night/this morning, as well as the decent
propagation we enjoyed.
73 & Happy 2K4,
