Just looking through my log for 40M and surprised to see F6BAZ long path -20dB with 0.2W. Quite a good result.

Now have an Ultimate 3S and RD15HVF1 up and running 80 thru to 6m.
Is it me or is 12m the definition of an RF black hole.....one spot in 2 weeks.

I have been slowly convincing a FT690R that WSPR is a good idea.
Having a 40Hz droop on your single is embarrassing to say the least. Upgrading the regulators supplying the main PLL is slowly helping and now down to less than 20Hz frequency drift, with receiving stations starting to decode my transmissions. One regulator to go!

Looking through my 20m activity and spotted this...

2015-04-09 20:44 G7EVW 14.097067 -20 0 IO94fv 0.005 VK2EFM QF56pn 16832 53

Well done G7EVW

Up and running.

IC 720A and a trapped vertical.

All works well. Trying out 40M at the moment and running 5W. might try a lower power level.
