SKED: Mar 5-7 20M JT65/JT9

Postby AE9RB » Fri Mar 06, 2015 12:13 am

Want a Peaberry-Peaberry QSO? Thinking of buying one and want to hear it on the air?

I'll be on 20M JT65/JT9 starting now through tomorrow night when propagation is good. So approximately:
Mar 6 00:00 - Mar 6 04:00 UTC
Mar 6 20:00 - Mar 7 04:00 UTC

This will be super casual. Not glued to the chair like a contester. If you want a QSO and don't see me, you can request one by sending "AE9RB MYCALL MYGRID" (just press the grid button in WSJT). My computer is configured to make noise when it sees this.

I got a couple of Peaberry-Peaberry contacts already. Since I was asked, here's the hardware I'm using:

Peaberry SDR V2 adjusted down to 1.0 watt.
Elecraft T1.
Attic dipole. No balun.
Pyramid power supply.

A very minimal and stealthy setup for sure. I'm currently working on all states with this setup. Shouldn't be a problem even with the compromised antenna. I will QSL LotW, eQSL, and return any by mail. Waiting on a new LotW cert so it might be a week or so before you see that.

The software I'm using is posted here: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=525

Worked you on March 5th. You had a nice signal off the back of my beam which is the report I sent you. I turned my antenna your way and of course your signals came up. Great job!
