OK Joe, well lets try 30m. Only 2 contacts so far on 160m. Will QSY to 30. Karen



Hi Karen

UR IMD: -17dB and S/N; 16 dB into Michigan.

Sure wished I could give you a QSO, I can squeeze 30 meters out of my five band antenna, but 160 meters is just too much for it.

73 es best wishes, Joe KJ8O 1244 Troy MI

Good evening fellow PSKers,

Being the first of March and the new Word of the Month starting up, I thought I
would do some experimenting with the 30 meter band. I just started working this
band about 2-3 weeks ago, and am looking to fill up some slots for WAS, LONP,
etc.

So anyone needing the letter "O" you know where to find me.

P.S. if this doesn't work out, I'll just go back to 40 like I always do...

HI ALL,

ON 60M THE KENWOOD HAS IT ALREADY IN IT FOR THE USA I HAVE ONE AND AS
YOU
GO THROUGH THE BANDS IT COMES UP AND WORKS AS I HAVE USED IT PORTABLE
AND
MOBILE.

DECLAN

thanks for that insight, Milt.
From what I have been reading on various groups, the Yaesu FT-450
apparently has
the 5 60m frequencies designed into the radio. It may be a simple firmware
update to get them out here, but nothing heard from Yaesu as of yet. I
would be
reluctant to mod my TS-2000, but my 450 may get into play here...hmmmm
 
Thanks again, Oh Wise One from the Federated Villages of Close to East
LA  via
The Ever Popular 210 Freeway    (ah, how I miss the 210 car pool
lane...if
you are not doing 85mph+, they will punt you right into one of the 150+ Del

Hi Ted,
I can't speak as a "Wise One", as the 60m bug just hasn't bit here.
There are many of the newer radio's that have the 60 meter band installed,
but
many more older rigs that don't have that capability. I will caution those
with
radio's that have to be "freebanded", or have a so-called MARS/CAP mod done
in
order to xmit on 60 meters.
A question to ask yourself when doing these mods? What IF will my radio be
using
for xmit? There's a 7 mHz IF...there's a 3.5 mHz IF. Neither are all that
efficient on 5.4 mHz. Where does the inefficiency go? Up in heat!
I don't know of a solution to that. I don't know if there is a solution
My point? Be aware of the consequences of modifying your transceiver to
cover 60
meters.

Hi Milt, I'm sorry to hear about your finger reduction ( 'At that time, my fingers were too big for the vfo knob. I think they corrected that.')
I'm sending you the smaller straight key that K7Cleo uses (see my qrz page). Cleo thinks the lack of thumb issue reduces her speed.
Anyway, totally forgot abount Tommy's !!! the best !!
trying to Skype you tomorrow after lunch

I don't personally know of anyone that's tried it with the TS-2000. I think there are a number of the guys here on the reflector that use the TS-2000 and perhaps they can share.
I played with an FT-450 one weekend and I liked the receiver. At that time, my fingers were too big for the vfo knob. I think they corrected that.
You're right about the car pool lanes on the freeways here. 85 mph is a good average speed, BUT, beware of what's in front of you?...Ha! Beware of what's coming up fast behind you. My current taste's are for Tommye's and Carl's Jr.
