Not sure what you are doing with your logging from a different QTH
Are you using W7RIV/P 
Just curious how to enter the contact

Re: DM49, what band do you want?

Rick - N7WE
 

Hi Byron-

Since you were already at 50w, I wouldn't have pushed the power up.  But how do you tell if you are distorting?Other than a field report from someone - and they can't always be relied on - most just go with watching the  ALC. As you probably know, the normal rule is you are good if no ALC is showing,  But I think you are running a K3 which is different.   For the K3 the rule is 4 bars of ALC and the 5th flickering.  The K3 has a really clean transmitter and you can push it beyond 50w (if everything else is right) and still be <-25 IMD.  I don't recommend running that high a power on PSK.  From my base station, generally 25 to 30w is enough. But sometimes with a portable operation where you have a less than good antenna, you have to push the power up a bit to compensate.  I pushed it up to 50w several times when N7WE/P last year. 

I suppose the ultimate answer would be to have a spectrum analyzer in line, but I don't have that kind of $.  So I use a "IMD Meter by kk7uq" in addition to the ALC indication on the K3.  There is also something called a PSK Meter (I think) but I've never used one.  If you get a chance to pick up the IMD Meter on the used market, I highly recommend them.  They are out of production now, but come up for sale occasionally.

Hope that answers the question and hope you had a great day portable.  Sure is a different thing than operating from your station at home. I wish I could do more of it!  73,

Thought I saw a weak trace, but a KB3 called me, but I kinda rushed  him off  because I was hunting a station I saw that was in DM37.    (think it was KD7TTT)  , a needed grid.   Never found him again because of loud crash in kitchen  from Granddaughter Katie slipping on wet floor  which was followed by a lengthy phone call  from an old friend.  Never made it back to radio !

Thanks Paula. I had messed up the Grid on your call. It should be DM49, make sure you log DM49.

Thanks again.  I saw N9AVY clear clear clear....cannot see me Jerry?

DM49 Progress...

W7RIV
 

Hello everyone. Thanks for all the members reaching out to me. I feel a little bad that I am not taking the time to talk. With the limited time I have, I'm trying to work as many as possible. I didn't add the 070 to my laptop, I wish I would have. Thanks for those members mentioning they are 070.

I've made about 18 QSOs and it is a new grid for many. So that has been fun and made it worth while. I would like to get up into Canada for those needing it. 

I'm going to rotate the antenna a little bit and see if that helps anyone.

Bryon, W7RIV

How can I tell if I'm distorting? Right now I'm putting out 50w on my meter.

Thought I saw you - in and out - not enough to full decode.  But it was a W and then a V.  Can you up your power without distorting?
