OK, I did get on
and make a few QSO last night. Later then I expected as
company dropped by.
NOW, today (after
1200z) I had problems getting the "working last night" W10
machine and Winwabler to work (correctly - as it was last
night). Is it the heat (87F going to 92F) ?? maybe?
I switched to my
Raspberry Pi + Fldigi. It is working, but I am seeing only
PSK63 and stations working EU PSK contest.
IT IS hot, I am
going to try later this afternoon. I was only running 5
Watts, but solar... The 12m mast with 12m wire/9:1 balun
tunes well. I tested 80m to 15m with good SWR before using

tonight 0000z to 0200z I will NOT be portable... BUT I will
be on 80m from DE for anyone needing the state. IF, 80m is
a dud, I will move to 40m... I will be running 70 watts. I
will also "chase".
I am trying to
"iron" out the kinks with Winwabler. I have used it before,
its been a while. Not using Raspberry Pi as I "think"
Winwabler (and W10) may be better for "contests" aka FD.
morning (after 1200z) I plan on being portable.

OK, since May
22 starts at 00z...
Weather permitting (forecast - to be nice) I will be on
80m (maybe 40m) from 00z to 02z.
I "expect" to be running 70 watts.

"portable" from the backyard deck.
I will at least be running 10 watts. Antenna 12m random
Current forecast is cloudy and <25% chance of rain, but
86F may limit me to morning hours.
A nice "dry" run for Field Day...
Plan 20m and 40m

changes will be announced via email.
OK, if the station is outside with portable antenna, can I
operate remote? (inside - not in shack - portable wifi)
