Just not getting out!

Postby km2km » Fri Feb 06, 2015 9:07 pm

I made one contact from Ithaca, NY to Texas using a 5 element long john a few weeks ago.

We ran some lab tests with a scope and it will put out the watt - tested it on AM, FM and SSB.

But once at home, on my antenna (no SWR issues - tested it) aimed toward a friends SDR on the other hill I can;t even hear myself.

When I have another rig on I can hear the Peaberry well - nice and clear.

But I can't seem to make it to the other side of town!

What mode and band?

Try using pskreporter.info and see if anyone else is picking you up on PSK31 or JT65.
