144 MHz Spring Sprint
Class: Single Op LP
Operating Time (hrs):
Total: QSOs = 25 Mults = 10 Total Score = 250
Rig: IC-275H w/RTL-SDR bandscope
Ant: stacked pair of Omniangles at 25ft
Adding the RTL-SDR to the IC-275H with a Raspberry Pi 3B and CAT gave me
scope with click-tune capability. If it weren't for the bandscope I
have realized that there was FT8 activity on 144.175, which led to my
FT8 QSO's on 2m.
Best DX on SSB and FT8 was about 200 miles on each mode. No stellar
score, but a
lot of fun nonetheless.
Thanks for pulling my puny signal out of the noise!
