John,

Roger that. Been calling for half hour and have never seen a trace.

But take a look at FT8 or FT4 on PSKReporter to see the map full.

Still calling!

Hi All,
I will be activating park K-4182, Trine State Recreational Center, today from approximately 17:00 - 19:00 UTC  I will be on PSK31 most of the time and hope to work you.  Thanks again to all the POTA hunters who worked me last week!  It was lots of fun and I'm looking forward to this afternoon!

Re: 17 Meters Saturday 3/6/21

 

That should be a good time for 17.  The past few days when 20 was dead in the morning, 17 was packed with FT8 signals but no one doing PSK.  It's a shame because 17 is a great band.

Hi John,

I haven't worked psk on 17 meters yet so I'll join you on that band if I'm around the radio.  What frequencies do you like to hang out on 17 meters?  The club website has 18100 for the 17 meter band.  I believe this has been taken over by FT8.

Good point, Norm.   PSK traffic on 17 meters has moved to 18.097.  That's where I will be!

The thing has been up like this for a few years but today it was one elk too much. Wifey says it gives me a project though. I will relocate my antenna switch up on the hill side and likely build a few different setups.

Elk came through my property and one panicked and got stuck in the feedline going up to my dipole.  It tore the dipole apart .. one side is stuck up 50 ft in a tree that maybe someone in a few hundred years will find ... I also think the feedline (100ft of LMR400) broke. Got a quick hamstick up but I will be out for a bit :(

You know Rick, they call that area the "Cajun Atlantis" and after being there during a heavy rain storm I can see why NOLA has trouble during a hurricane. I guess we will see what happens.  Regional competitions are now selling tickets and since its in TX who knows what will happen as long as there is power, hi hi. 

Does anyone need EL94, that covers the FL keys, we are heading to Key West the end of the month.  Wanderlust has hit the xyl bad, now that we are vaccinated.

Yep, I did use it with a lightweight bluetooth keyboard sometimes. That's a bit better.  I don't backpack portable.  I'm more of a picnic table operator.  Even work from the campervan a lot when it's not dry or warm outside.  Fair weather ham, that I am.

Hi Dave,

Yes, I agree with you on trying to use DroidPsk on a phone.  I have tried it on a tablet which worked fairly well.  I picked up a bluetooth keyboard and mouse for my tablet so it was like using a computer.  A couple of years ago, I change over to an ASUS small laptop with a SSD and that is all I use now for my radio computer.  Works fine in the car and for portable use.  Also started using the IC7100 for portable use, since with the deep cycle battery I can push out full power.  Since my portable efforts don't involve carry thing more than from the car to a picnic table the weight is not a problem, hi hi.  I would not want to backpack the stuff like Eric is doing.  

Hi Barry, I saw that the link has been discontinued after I posted the information.  The link its self it just an audio interface, but I does work well with the 817 or the 7100.   Have not been able to get my laptop to work well with it, but don't really need it, since the 7100 has usb connection for CAT and audio.   I think the more important thing is software that will run on a smart phone.

Hi Eric,

If you are an Android user there is an app called DroidPSK that runs on any Android device.  It was done by Wolphi LLC  (www.wolphi.com).  He also has an interface that goes between the droid device and the radio.  I purchased on for my FT817 and have tested, but never used in the field.  It was nice to work you during our trip.
