I find it fascinating to watch others running a pile-up. Just to see what they are doing, how they behave. How they solve problems and how they battle the QRM. That is why I made this video. To learn from it. And since I find watching it fascinating others might find that too so I publish it on youtube and this blog. I think running a pile-up has everything to do with experience, strict rules and concentration. I am concentrated but need more experience and stick to the rules. If I have a problem, like a station call that was misunderstood I need too much time to solve it. I really should think about what the fastest way is to react. Although it might look good I think I have yet a long way to go to the perfect run. Tips are welcome, please leave your comment!
allSnap a program that aligns all those small windows of N1MM, a very handy piece of software. After that I chose the best configuration of all the screens to use in my opinion. I don't use 2 VFO bandmaps anymore as I found it's too distracting and I have a laptop besides the screen with DXheat on it to view multipliers. If I miss a multiplier in the multiplier screen and see it on DXheat I tick the freq. into the log field and there I am...Another problem I couldn't solve was a easy one, but during the contest gave me a lot of problems. If I was running I constantly pressed "Tab" to get to the RcvNR field. PA4O Peter came with the solution, simple as that just don't use "Tab" but the spacebar and you're instantly fly to the RcvNR field.
