Amateur radio picture of the week

Over the weekend I was operating in the World Wide Digi DX contest and I wondered if I could get a screen capture of my TS-890 just as I started transmission.

I reached over and as the radio went into transmit, I hit the screen capture button and this is the result.

FT8 key down

As you can see, my output power is set to 30 watts but I’m only actually transmitting about 20 watts because my input audio level is well below any ALC indication. The SWR on my resonant hexbeam is low and the transmitted audio is clean.

Shame the band was dead! A few minutes later I stopped for the evening.

I just think it’s a nice picture.
