OK so some functionality that I want to achieve is up and running. GREAT NEWS is the noise floor that’s plagued my station is now gone! From a S5/6 noise floor down to S1/2 let’s hope it stays that way!
Well, Saturday April 11 2020 was an abbreviated GA QSO PARTY contest. I didn’t get but a couple of hours to participate from my home station in SC but I hope I did help 16 of my fellow hams with those last few points they needed. Not too shabby really, not great, but not bad 16 QSOs in an hour that’s only 7 min 30 sec to find someone calling CQ and bust through the pileups and get the contact in the log on average. Log below:
After the G1M had it’s little microphone issue and the subsequent repair, I finally got the chance to use it for the 100W&AW net. Ian had issues not due to my signal but due to another couple of operators just below the net frequency so the contact was short and struggled for, but I made it in.
