Playing around with my various ATU's and bit of lawnmower lead in the loft this morning.....

Just bagged me my first QRP Japan contact! Smile

FT8 5W

JA9GPG - Japan


Just glad the "air" doesn't have feelings because I didn't half punch it! Very Happy

5814 miles on 5 Watts - Never say never. HF Contacts 12m 1f44d
 
(Bit of a lift on helped though. Wink )

Well done Alan, glad you grabbed some of the lift going on. (Very much up and down.)

I was chuffed because I was testing out the differences between the ATU's I've made. (A T-match, Pi, Z-match, various link-coupled and a simple L-match.) As you know FT8 frequencies are almost always busy so good for RX purposes. It was only because I was on 12m at the time testing the Pi-match and noticed the lift so clicked on the Enable TX.....didn't expect to get an answer from Japan! Wink

Probably more pleased that it was almost accidental and I got a reply from a test CQ.

Doesn't look like they're a QRZ log user so probably won't get a confirmation, (less than half actually do), but not fussed so long as it's in the log. HF Contacts 12m 1f44d


Still not fathomed these ATU's with certainty yet though. Rolling Eyes

Well b*gger me, just had a USA contact whilst posting. HF Contacts 12m 1f44d

That'd be my first too!! (Think my original Pi-match does well up there.)

Two firsts in a day, can't be bad. Wink


FT8 5W

N9SW - USA

QRZ confirmed too!


That'll keep me happy for a little while, one end of the world to the other on QRP. Smile

I noticed 17m had come alive so popped for a shifty. (On a roll. Wink )

Didn't take long before some eejit was splashing over the even transmission windows! Evil or Very Mad


I'm still on a buzz from today anyway so started pulling apart some vintage junk I was given for the switch gear. Decided the Pi-match is the best all rounder so sticking with that and the L type for the low HF bands.

You do well with your antenna Alan mate and your coastal QTH doesn't half help some. You could swap with here deep dark hole in Bedford if you'd like? Very Happy


Anyway, off for me tea now. Take it easy.

Much appreciated Mike, especially after the re-inspiration I gained from your FT4/FT8 work. HF Contacts 12m 1f44d

Only one contact for me today, but a new entity so very happy, though nowhere near as far away as your Japan Victor. Worked using my usual setup.

Well done Neal. HF Contacts 12m 1f44d

(Another country I'd like in the log.)

Pushed a 'volunteer' up into the loft today (my poor suffering missus!) to add another 11 foot or so of wire to the ends of the doublet. 44 foot did well so we'll see how 66 feet goes. Wink

New one for me yesterday that I am very surprised and happy I managed on only my second call, usual setup. I think seemingly the whole world being on 10m for the contest helped making it quiet for me.
