FT-1000 MP

Jerry N9AVY
 

This rig has been acting goofy lately.  Have to watch the output power because running up & down the band there tends to be less power on low end and too much on the other end of band.  Feel like an old broadcast engineer having to constantly "ride the gain".

The weirdest one happened this morning on 20m  ... was siting down at 14070 and had the bandwidth set to usual 2.4K when a signal up at 14073 completely swamped out the receiver.  Thought it was just that one station which may have been over driving audio or running too much power.  About an hour later there was a different station in the same frequency on the other coast doing exactly the same thing.

Don't thing I'll get rid of FT-1000MP, just for a couple of freak things, but I'd be interested in knowing if anyone else has had a similar problems with an FT-1000.

BTW, when his happens I can usually narrow bandwidth down to 500 or 250 Hz. , but then I can't watch the entire band.

The band is awful and then with the FT8 down here is bad.

Hope to work all of you fine folks today!

Irv:

True.  However, the object of this is to only work 070 members .  Non-members don't count in this contest, BUT  next year (2019) St. Pat's Day and other 070 contests will be open to ALL.  If someone calls me who isn't a member I will usually give them the 070 web page info and thank them for the contact. PODXS wants to be more inclusive now and pick up a few more members, but the logistics (Score Checker ) to include non-members needs to be worked out.

Missed quite a few tonight. Saw them but they either faded out or disappeared.  Didn't find  any new members I hadn't worked before... where were all the new guys ???  Saw a few non-members , but didn't work 'em.

I was fun , but I tired out too soon... long day before contest.

Hope to see everyone later today and need some new 070#.
