247 DX NET

Participated in the DX Net @ 14247.0 yesterday. First time for me. But it was really fun and a lot of W stn’s that wanted a SMØ call in their loggs. One even wanted to QSL Direct :) Now I must get me some QSL cards…

PSK from the backyard

Pontus, SMØRUX (or SMØR), working PSK with his FT-817, NUE-PSK digital modem, and a Buddipole antenna from my backyard. The NUE-PSK gizmo makes it possible to work PSK without a computer.

Notice the vintage keyboard from Keytronic :)

What a evening… Radio wise that is…

This evenings ”expedition” to four different SMFF areas gave 168 QSO’s! All on 80m. Well, actually, I would be surprised if there was any other than 80m since I only have an antenna for this band… Now it’s ”only” 905 SMFF areas left until I have the SMFF 1000 diploma :)
