Playing Around On 2M SSTV mode whilst Rag Chewing On 70CM
This Evening I spent a couple of hours working Ham Station and friend Phil M1PAC on 144.500mhz SSTV mode and at the same time we had a good old rag chew on 433.725mhz. Phil sent me some great images and I returned with some of my new pictures, at the same time Louise captured it all on her phone cam so thats the video above. Thanks louise : } I enjoy the SSTV mode and I intend to continue experimenting around with Computers and digi modes for Radio use, and fortunately I seem to be getting the hang of most of the modes /operations so far.
The bands in general have not been so great in my QTH over the last 10 days so thankfully SSTV and PSK have kept me occupied. I am looking forward to better propagation and a few new countries to add to the list which is slowly getting bigger.
I sent some of my new QSL cards off direct to: VP8LP Bob, ZP8VAO Amado, GD0BCJ Paul, LU3MCJ Emilio and HR2DMR Don all worked in the last fortnight on 20M. So I guess the conditions have not been quite so bad after all? It just seems a bit unreliable propagation for those of us who can mainly get on after a days work in the hope of some DX activity.
I hope the Ionisphere is smiling over you! thanks for visiting 73
