Excellent. Getting warmed up for my one August that’s missing. All I have is a small attic dipole, but at least I know it works. Just hope the prop takes pity on me.

Very true.   After 47 years in service end I've found there are times when RTM in necessary .  Happened to me the other day at one of my customers.  There was a weird message on display and I did  everything I knew and went to car for manual... couldn't find a thing about solving problem.  In desperation I called manufacturer's tech support which ran me through all the programming and he was stymied too.  Finally he said to drop power, both AC & battery.  That cleared the problem.  It was last thing I would have thought of, but my job is to find a  fix quickly  and not run  up the billable hours.

Re: MACRO's

Marty Grove
 

I have set my macro's up a couple of different ways...

For casual QSO's I usually reply with two of my callsigns:  de k

For contests I reply with a single return of my call:   de k

You can always hit the reply macro again if you don't get a reply from the other station. 

If calling CQ you might want to send your call sign a few times.... maybe three times.  Gives other stations a bit of time to tune to your freq.

I have four macros and have used all four.  One has calls once, two have calls twice, three has the called station twice and my call three times and the fourth macro is my call only  repeated four times for when none of the others have worked.   If the calling station cannot figure our my call from all that then the QSO is done.     If comm is good then once works fine.

Re: MACRO's

Hi Jon !
 
When responding to a CQ, I usually do    de    .  He already knows his own call so doing it more than once might be redundant.  My own call I will give twice in case he has QSB or doesn't get it the first pass.  But this is subject  and most do what works  for them. 
 
When calling CQ , I use auto CQ which is  2 rounds of  3 CQ's and 3 de my call.   It also repeats  itself every 20=30 seconds so I can be doing other things.
 
I haven't found IMD & S/N reports useful.  As long as I can hear the other station I'm happy.  Have worked a lot of station where copying signal was so rough  I had to resort  to picking out bits and pieces to get a full call sign, but a contact was made.   My thoughts on IMD & S/N  reports is that they are the PSK  equivalent of "um"  and  "er"  or the telegraphic  version of .-.-.-. , just to fill space,  IMHO.

Re: Today's Funny Story

35-40 watts is a decent power level out  for PSK31.  Usually run about 40 watts, but have to watch power out meter as FT-1000MP has a tendency to creep upwards with power for some reason.  The difference between 40 & 50 is negligible because I would have to double the power to see any difference at the other end and that would have me running 80 watts and would have to double in again to see another S unit which would mean running 160 watts that isn't there unless I put amp in line.   At that power level people would be screaming about QRM, etc. and maybe neighbors would being getting TVI. I'm happy at 40 watts. Jerry n9avy

  Hope you weren't running a lot of power.  A friend who used to live here in town did that with some power on SSB and ended up with "flaming traps" (might have been a KW).  I would recommend erring on side of caution.  That was why I went to trapless Force 12 antenna.  Traps can be lossy. I know I can load up Force 12 on 12 & 17 m  with a tuner, but with the WARC dipole on tower above the Force 12, the WARC dipole works much better without tuner, Performance is better than the Force 12 and I think the Force 12 works backwards on 12/17m, at least that what  manual said. Had warning not to use either antenna on 40m  and that was why I put up both vertical and a sloper. Have few friends who share info with ne and they're usually right; so I listen. jerry

Well you know the 20G would work if someone could come up with a 10db attenuator that was big enough.

Have few friends who share info with ne and they're usually right; so I listen. jerry

  Gotta agree with u Jerry on best antenna by Mosley  ...... I researched a lot b4 purchasing the TA33 and it has not disappointed ... I know it is designed for 10M 15M 20M but I have been able to load it up from 40M to 10M including 17M and 30M with my MFJ-993B auto tuner   ....

  Got my TA-33 back in 1978 and it was used (3rd , maybe 4th hand).  Whoever had it last had left it laying on ground with trap drain holes looking at sky.  Water got into traps and Northern Winter turned it to ice which cracked plastic coil forms in traps.   Disassembled traps carefully and got to coil forms that were cracked.  Heated up traps the metal part with a torch and quickly tapped forms back together with small hammer.  Put TA-33 back up and it was an excellent performer for many years from 4 or 5 QTHs.  It's been said that this was the best antenna "old man Mosely'  ever designed which I tend to agree with.   It's currently in storage  in garage.  Have intentions to use it again - someday. BTW, on 10m the SWR was pretty much flat from 28.300  up to 28.900.   Jerry  n9avy

  No, no.  If you want to work across the equater, you turn it upside down.  If you want to work the opposite hemisphere, you turn it sideways.

  Barry,
I asked him.  I had made several contacts there in the weeks before including him (VK3BM).  The mornings we talked with his beam oriented toward Europe and I also was able to work Reunion Island at the same time. Later on he said that he swung it around and came across the Pacific. I googled his QTH and immediately understood why we had the QSO.  The beam antenna on his tower was bigger than his house.
I was curious as to why I got him both times that is why I asked.   I did the same thing with a station near Adeleide too.
When the prop is in, it is in even for qrp stations.  Sure do miss those days though.  Haven't had contact with the Aussie's in quite a while now.
Jerry I tried to rotate the vertical but nothing changed???????  Maybe I should mount it upside down but then I would have to operate prq. Ya had to go there didn't ya.

When using a vertical how do you determine if your contact is long path or short path.

Great catch!  I've seen him at my QTH but no joy here.
I was blown away when I reached Australia on long path.  I was on 20m using a vertical on the roof with 1.5 watts.As you said, "when it's in it's in!  Ya gotta love this mode!

Hope you weren't running a lot of power.  A friend who used to live here in town did that with some power on SSB and ended up with "flaming traps" (might have been a KW).  I would recommend erring on side of caution.  That was why I went to trapless Force 12 antenna.  Traps can be lossy. I know I can load up Force 12 on 12 & 17 m  with a tuner, but with the WARC dipole on tower above the Force 12, the WARC dipole works much better without tuner, Performance is better than the Force 12 and I think the Force 12 works backwards on 12/17m, at least that what  manual said. Had warning not to use either antenna on 40m  and that was why I put up both vertical and a sloper. Have few friends who share info with ne and they're usually right; so I listen. jerry

  Gotta agree with u Jerry on best antenna by Mosley  ...... I researched a lot b4 purchasing the TA33 and it has not disappointed ... I know it is designed for 10M 15M 20M but I have been able to load it up from 40M to 10M including 17M and 30M with my MFJ-993B auto tuner   .... I just finished working Lewis K4ARE and Rene HP1DCP on 30M

  Got my TA-33 back in 1978 and it was used (3rd , maybe 4th hand).  Whoever had it last had left it laying on ground with trap drain holes looking at sky.  Water got into traps and Northern Winter turned it to ice which cracked plastic coil forms in traps.   Disassembled traps carefully and got to coil forms that were cracked.  Heated up traps the metal part with a torch and quickly tapped forms back together with small hammer.  Put TA-33 back up and it was an excellent performer for many years from 4 or 5 QTHs.  It's been said that this was the best antenna "old man Mosely'  ever designed which I tend to agree with.   It's currently in storage  in garage.  Have intentions to use it again - someday. BTW, on 10m the SWR was pretty much flat from 28.300  up to 28.900.   Jerry  n9avy

  No, no.  If you want to work across the equater, you turn it upside down.  If you want to work the opposite hemisphere, you turn it sideways.

  Barry,
I asked him.  I had made several contacts there in the weeks before including him (VK3BM).  The mornings we talked with his beam oriented toward Europe and I also was able to work Reunion Island at the same time. Later on he said that he swung it around and came across the Pacific. I googled his QTH and immediately understood why we had the QSO.  The beam antenna on his tower was bigger than his house.
I was curious as to why I got him both times that is why I asked.   I did the same thing with a station near Adeleide too.
When the prop is in, it is in even for qrp stations.  Sure do miss those days though.  Haven't had contact with the Aussie's in quite a while now.
Jerry I tried to rotate the vertical but nothing changed???????  Maybe I should mount it upside down but then I would have to operate prq. Ya had to go there didn't ya.

When using a vertical how do you determine if your contact is long path or short path.

Steve,
Great catch!  I've seen him at my QTH but no joy here.
I was blown away when I reached Australia on long path.  I was on 20m using a vertical on the roof with 1.5 watts.As you said, "when it's in it's in!  Ya gotta love this mode!
