After another year or two break I’m now back on the air. Over the xmas holiday period I’ve been working PSK31 & SSTV primarily on 40 & 20m. Stations worked include DA0NR, RA6ASU, TF2CT, K8WDX, G3YSK and DR11BUGA (all PSK31) and IZ3AOY (SSTV).
I’ve also had some success working APRS via both HF and ARISS. Several attempts at capturing data from ARISSAT-1 have failed apart from a few 1 minute sections of voice announcement. Poor location of the 2m colinear is probably not helping.
Setup currently consists of a Yaesu FT847 & ATU feeding a random wire running down the garden.
Membership with the RSGB will commence in the new year and new QSL cards are being printed. Happy to QSL direct or via the bureau.
