Z68M 6m fox


Unusual late 6m ES propagation. Very late in the evening here Z68M suddenly appeared on my screen. Not one signal but 4 or 5 different signals. Had to be the illustrious fox/hound mode. So I went into the configuration/advanced and switch on the hound mode for the first time. A few transmissions later I was in the log...

Update: Thanks to John AE5X I found out that Z68M is not using fox/hound mode but multi answering mode in software called MSHV. I should have read his QRZ page before. Anyway the QSO was made in hound mode so that works well. I've heard from MSHV but don't know the features implemented, this multi answering mode is new to me!

  1. Hey Bas, check out his qrz.com page:

    he describes using a multi-answer mode, not the Fox-Hound config...?

    1. Hello John, so that was a misconception. He's using MSHV in multianswering mode. Learned a new thing today! Tnx. 73, Bas

  2. Hallo Bas, dat is weer een mooie DXCC op 6 meter. Hound mode ken ik niet. Even gaan opzoeken wat dat doet. 73 Paul PAØK

    1. Is wel interessant maar in hound mode moet je wel een set hebben aan de CAT want degene in fox mode bestuurd dan jouw set in feite. 73, Bas

  3. Hoi Bas, MSHV gebruikte ik al voor meteorscatter op 2mb en tegenwoordig ook op hf voor FT8. Het programma vind ik beter decoderen dan WSJT-X. Succes en 73 Hans, PE1BVQ.
