My seeing PSK has
improved since the first of the year for unknown reasons. HI
HI It got better just like it got really bad nine years ago.
Once in a while I have a good day and can see a few stations,
sometimes I even get to have a QSO with them. I have started
doing a lot of FT8, not a contester normally, but I'm having
fun with the grid chase and that my station is working well.
I have had the best luck with my Alpha Delta LB+ running NW to
SE across the house at 25 feet on my tower with ends at about
8 ft. Today my 6 band vertical is kicking it big. I mostly
see stations in the eastern 1/3 of Canada and New England,
then off to Florida and Georgia. On the other side I see a
lot of Arizona and some New Mexico then a lot of California.
Not a lot otherwise, but some as I just finished FT8 WAS and
finished last week WAS on Digital in general LoTW shows me
short four for PSK, but I have cards, I think, from them. So
at times I am able to do well. I prefer PSK, and have been
greatly frustrated not being able to see people. Honestly I
have not been back over at night. I'll try to do that
tonight. Feel free to email my at my call at gmail. I am the
Mr. Mom in our house, even though the daughters are adults,
but the three females here all have different work schedules
and it keeps my retired self busy. HI HI Thank, I have
talked to the TX Traffic Net some, but many days cannot do
