A map of all contacts made during my limited time operating in last weekend’s
Ten Meter RTTY contest.
This weekend was the ARRL DX CW contest. I played a little bit to get a
few new countries and just for fun. I started with N1MM but looked if
there was a way to do it on Linux. There is. The combination of xlog
and eepKeyer was working quite ok. Export of the Cabrillo file and also
scoring was a different story though. But it’s a start. eepKeyer uses
cwdaemon for keying, so the interface I built a few weeks ago worked as
Just did some partial operating during the North American QSO Party RTTY.
Fldigi in combination with the TS-590 worked quite well and flawless.
Set up for a few days in the beautiful Texas Hill Country. First QSO was with Martin, OK1WCF on 20m PSK-31
running 30w into the newly acquired Buddipole. I know, not quite QRP, but it worked :).
My trusty FT-857D running PSK-31 using FLDIGI on Linux.
My ioIO antenna for 2m and 70cm. Not much activity (or should I say none) on 2m SSB.
The Buddipole on the long mast as a vertical. Note that guying is a must!
Again more QRP fun. 5w into OCF dipole.
Who needs big amps? 5w into a dipole seems to be enough.
Who needs big amps?
QSO with KJ4OHL on VO-52. The linear birds are certainly more fun when it comes to
actually having a QSO that consists of more than just your call and grid square.
