Not yet, still putting together the Shack, almost, almost, set up a temporary 2m SSB Station here to join a local Salop ARS Sked, but so far nothing is up, and we're having a lot of landscaping done here whilst we had the builder/landscaper on site.
Interested in JS8Call though, used to do PSK31 and ALE in the past.

I'm doing remote operating in bitesize chunks. Long term I may set up a station somewhere quiet and remote, but for now it's just experimenting and a bit of fun.
Stage 1 is simply using wsjt-z for FT8 which controls my rig perfectly and a resonant antenna as I don't have an ATU that would work without physical intervention - yet. Power is controlled using WiFi smart plugs and I access my PC using Chrome remote desktop so that means I can be on any remote device that will run Google Chrome.
I'm not away from home much at the moment but I am thinking ahead to the Es season on 50MHz and I don't want to miss any openings should I be sat in the garden/park/pub etc
OK, I'm limited to digimodes but that is fine for now, stage 2 can look at voice modes etc.
