The one I didn’t get though was Z60C, in Kosovo. I had pretty good copy on both 40 and 80 CW, but the pileups were brutal. Of course, there were the clueless lids calling incessantly on his transmitting frequency, as usual, but there were also a LOT of stations correctly calling on his listening frequency, too. And … a lot of them were packing some serious power, by the sound of them!
Oh well, if I don’t get them today, I’ll get them tomorrow … I DID make another contact on 60 meters!
What a beautiful day for getting out and doing a bit of operating … NOT!
Pretty nasty day, isn’t it? I did make a few contacts after I got home this afternoon (from the shack) … 40 Meters was really the only band open, so the day was not a total bust. Ah, well … there’s always tomorrow!
Well, I did a bit of fiddlin’ with WSPR-X this evening. Here’s the results …
I was transmitting 5 watts, using a 31-ft vertical. If you’re more interested in how WSPR-X works, it’s one of the modes included in W1JT’s WSJT-X ver. 1.8.0 software. WSPR is explained at http://wsprnet.org.
