Mucho 160M big iron rolled out of bed early this morning to work TX3A. I could just hear due to low noise conditions here in FL (FINALLY!!!!!). Here is Chesterton on a map
I'm the little black dot in FL He is the little blue dot off east Australia. We usually have pretty good propagation to Australia so this might be do-able for me. If I had some gray line time this morning it might be do-able, as he is building nicely but alas I have to go.
In the mean time I worked KH2L in Guam up on 40. He was LOUD LOUD LOUD Here is a map of Guam for comparison:
You can see him a thousand miles up the ocean. Did I say he was loud?
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.
