Last night before pulling the plug, I had a last radio contact to make which was with M0OGY - Dave in North Lincolnshire. I recently became friends with Dave - M0OGY, via the ever growing YouTube Community of "Hams" and "SWLs" that have some very interesting Amateur radio videos on YouTube. Dave and I recently worked each other for the first time last week on 2M SSB .
Last nights QSO was worked on 80m a totally different band, which worked much better with bigger and louder signals sent and received. Dave's Shack looks impressive and can be seen in his video as he works with a Yaesu FT-1000 Delta, G5RV and 100 Watts.
I used My Yaesu FT-767 GX, Heil GoldLine Mic, G5RV, and 50 Watts to make the contact with Dave. Tnx Dave. It is a useful tool to be able to use YouTube as a means of checking how your station is sounding at the other end of the QSO. I will slightly back down the ALC after hearing myself on Dave - M0OGY's Video.
Watch Dave's YouTube Video of the QSO at his end, where you can hear us both up to no good. hi hi
