Back on the air after 13 years!

Back on the air after 13 years!

Who knew. Ft8 dragged me back out of listening mode. Always been a digital fan, rtty was a favourite back in the day. Been dragging all sorts of bits of aluminium from the pile behind the hut to see what’s still usable. There’s a minibeam that used to work well ‘in the old days’ (2005 if my online log is up to date) but the tower has long gone. Anyway, 21 countries worked on 14 in a weekend with 20w to a mobile whip and counterpoise at 2 meters high, what’s not to like? Logs automatically updated at eQSL and qrz.com if we ‘spoke’, or are about to.

These new fangled LEO sats look interesting, if you hear me, give me a call……
