Just a brief note: I will be on from home - DM09jh - in Silver Springs, NV.
Looking for any and all skeds/etc.
***FT8 IS ONLY ANOTHER TOOL, NOT A REPLACEMENT FOR CW/SSB!
QRV on the following...
50 MHz - Flex3000 - 100W - 6ele DK7ST designs on a 7.2M boom @ 27ft
144 MHz - IC-746 - 70W - 16ele M2 yagi on a 30ft boom @ 23ft
432 MHz - IC-708mkIIg - 35W - 27ele K1FI yagi @ 25ft
50.125+/- CW/SSB The analog modes are still where most of your bread/butter
50.260 MSK144 alot looking for MS contacts. two many stay on FT8 missing out
50.313 FTB FT8 when realistice but NOT ALL THE TIME
144.200+/- SSB/CW Again look here alot as FT8 is only another tool, NOT A
144.140 - MSK144 Skeds on MS run here. Dont miss out being on FT8 all the
144.174 FT8 when the tropo is appropriate
432.100+/- SSB/CW only as I have no Digital interface for the 706mkIIg,
only a Key & Mike.
Will be logged into the ON4KST pages, CALI VHF Page, Pingjockey, DXWatch
and whatever else I can find.
Best of luck and see you soon!
