This afternoon on twenty, after I got home from work, I had a bit better luck running the new wsjt-x, which is not compatible with the older versions. I actually found some takers for my CQs. I suspect more people are downloading and trying the new flavor! For more details, see the WSJT-X website.
On another note, I worked a new country using version 1.9.1, the “stable” version. I worked 5T2AI in Mauritania. I’ll admit … I bumped the power up to around 75 watts! I had to take a quick look at the African map to orient myself. The country is out on the big western bulge of the continent. Snagged him on the first try! Not so much luck with Aruba, P4, though. Just couldn’t connect with him.
UPDATE: Also worked SO1WS, western Sahara on 60 Meters FT8. That’s two new countries this evening! They’re out there. You just have to go get ’em!
