KB0VER's blog

I finally made my first TX in Italy. I was able to upgrade to Amateur Extra in June, so I can finally TX while I'm here for a few more months. First attempt is with WSPR to try and adjust TX audio level on my SignaLink USB into the FT-817. I'm getting a couple of bars of ALC transmitting at 1W. Using an end fed 20m sloped from my balcony to the corner of our lot in a NW direction I'm tx'ing as I/KB0VER per the CEPT and Italian rules. I'm getting into most of NE Europe including Iceland, Spain, The Canary Islands, and the East Coast of the U.S..
