Still think it is a miracle


FT8. Started at the highest band with propagation which was 15m. But only one weak signal was received. 17m much more DX, but my signal didn't come out, at least I was unable to work the DX, same for 20m. 30m some more luck, but no real DX. 60m same thing.....ehhh, but then....the miracle happened. So unfortunate Australia is still not allowed on 60m. Great report -15dB from VK7BO Tasmania. I was working with 15W FT8 on my multiband coppertape vertical.

  2. Hallo Bas, gisteren rolde allerlei stations uit Indonesie en Japan binnen met FT8 op 20 meter. Met PSK31 was er maar 1 station te horen. Misschien is FT8 toch beter dan wij veronderstellen? 73 Paul PC4T

    1. Het schijnt dat de nieuwste RC2 versie beter decodeert. Heb al decodes gezien van -22dB bij mij. 73, Bas

    1. Absoluut Hans, het mooie is dat ik het ook wel met de 817 had gered. Het is hooguit 4dB minder met 5W. 73, Bas
