Day 14 February QSO Challenge


Tonight I spent a couple of hours down on the 40m band as I called CQ PSK31 on 7.038MHz. I called longer than usual before I could complete my fourteenth QSO of the challenge. After a while I was answered and I made my first QSO of the day.

The first station that I worked tonight on 40m PSK31 was Jordi - EB3JT at 21.52 utc (See below the QSO with reports and QTH information). Our two stations are located 871 miles apart and when I looked Jordi - EB3JT up on QRZ.com, I noticed he had a nice looking station.  I also found out that Jordi was also a Satellite chaser. Perhaps I will work him again on VHF via an amateur satellite. In the meantime its another great QSO in the February challenge log.

Below is a screen shot of the QSO decoded using PSK31 Deluxe.

I Copied the text from the PSK31 Deluxe window and pasted it here for anyone who might be interested!

    Not many use PSK deluxe anymore since there is the new DM780. But it was not a bad program. I still got it somewhere. Still have an eye on digital SSTV (not the analog MMSSTV). There seem to be a program called easypal. Would you be interested to test it and make a sked some time? 73, Bas

    Hi Bas tnx for your comment.

    I tried DM780 a couple of year back when I was running ham radio deluxe but didnt get on with it hi hi. I will give it another go (just lazy and have to set up templates properly etc) The same thing for the digital SSTV as the programme I tried from the same software did not auto recognise the type of data it was RXing. I had to select the scottie mode etc manually. I will check out easypal and see if I like it and let you know about a sked.

    Many thanks for all your comments and keep up the hard work on your site. 73 Simon
