Pskfest

Strange conditions here this evening. Lots of signals in waterfall on 40m, but seemed like very few could hear me. 

Then all at once made 6-7 contacts with AZ, WA, CA. Band has gone here  and only saw KC3FL on 80. Now nothing but noise.

Complete forgot this contest.   I’m out doing a POTA activation and switched to digital and saw all the signals.   We will see how long the battery holds out!  Hi hi.

Been a lot of fun so far, as time and family allow. Only problem I’ve been having is that my RX here in SW Missouri is getting wiped out by a few stations that are splattering all over the waterfall because their transmitter audio drive is WAY too hot. If I turn my RX gain down enough to control their trace, almost everything else disappears.

Remember folks, only drive your TX audio enough to print nice, clean railroad tracks!

Sorry Ken, saw you briefly then you disappeared.

I can only recall seeing two stations with splatter and railroad tracks, and neither one were members.

If you ever see me with a splattering or dirty signal, please tell me!
