Starting from scratch - above the noise floor

Kicking off my first blog entry with a hello to everyone and let folks know what I am working with.

I'll be setting up for weak modes at KL7AA over the holidays. The station is setup for 10/15/20 meters so far with 40 & 80 soon coming.

Antennae planned are one loop for 40/80m and a BigIR vertical for up to 80. Existing is a Cushcraft 3-element Yagi.

The rig is a Yaesu MK-V FT-1000MP with an ACOM 1.5kw linear. The PC and rig are interfaced with a MicroHAM MKII USB. Overall a sweet setup.

The station is operational on digimodes with HRD/DRM780, MultiPSK, MixW etc.

Next step is to read all about the ws modes and get out there listening. Thank you for reading and I look forward to your comments and QSOs.

Cheers,
