I’ve not picked up the microphone at all over the last few days and am really having a good time working the data modes, almost exclusively JT65. I explained how JT65 works in my last blog post and I’m getting more interested by the mode every time I read about it and operate using it.
Because I’ve worked quite a few stations using JT65, it’s probably easier just to provide a list of bands and callsigns.
The following contacts were all on day #58
80m: IK5UIM, RA6HMS, VE9DX (new DXCC), K1LPS, GM4JYB, 2E0SQL
20m: UX2SB, UA1NAN, R7BN, OH5KUY, YO2BCT, UT5ERP, IZ0IWP, GW0TKX, CT1EKD
I also had two QSOs using PSK31 with HA1BF, Feri in Hungary and RA4HDT, Alex in Russia.
I was less active on day #59 as it was a work day and so I only had three QSOs with GI4SRQ on 80m and then I worked N1GKE on 40m followed by 3A2LF in Monaco, another new DXCC for me.
To round up this update I knew I was going to be late home on day #60 so I fired the wireless up before I left for work and had QSOs with F5RRS, EI1DG and F4EFL on 80m and once I was home I managed contacts with RV6HFA also on 80m and then completed the evening by having QSOs with 9A8W and NZ4O on 40m.
