I got an email from Bas PE4BAS who gave me the link for downloading JS8CALL. Now ready for Windows 7 too. I just installed the software. It’s pretty complicated. But I'll just try it. Just do it with trial and error.
US5LOC by using JS8CALL (the rag chew variant of FT8) now it’s possible to make a real QSO instead of full automatic.
DJ9YE (photo) with FT8 and I got a -20 dB report with 5 watts and a simple dipole.
Yesterday I was listening to 20 meter and did receive VK9XG (Christmas Island) with CW 529 report. There was a big pile up. I also worked LZ1ZF and LY2PX on 20 m CW.
With WSPR I was spotted by VK7JJ -23 dB on 40 meter with only 500mW. That's 16929 km.
