I haven't been on 10M in years. With the contest I decided to see what I could see. I don't have a beam, but I do have 136ft of open wire fed dipole up about 55 ft and I loaded that up with the Johnson Matchbox. Imagine my surprise at a band full of DX. Imagine my surprise also at my band noise, -142dBm Amazing
If you're interested in writing something interesting for this blog regarding your SDR experience let me know. I would like to include things like how your SDR contest station is set up, or your VHF station that uses SDR as the system center, feats of weak signal work or how well the SDR works in various challenging situations. If you are a foreign ham and would like to comment on the growth of SDR in your particular part of the world. Bring it on!
I reserve the right to publish or not, but I'm pretty open to documenting a wide variety of honest experiences from users, for readers to explore. The understanding of SDR in our hobby is so nascent, that I want the reader to be able to see the value of SDR through the eyes of YOUR experience and enthusiasm.
