Very well done there Jimmy. Ft8 all set up 1f44d 

I do like to hear of others hooking up more modern modes like FT8 onto vintage radio gear. So long as you allow for warm-up and keep a reasonably constant room temperature things like VFO drift aren't too much of an issue.

If I see you pop up on my waterfall I'll give you a shout. Smile

73,
Victor

Cheers victor I'll keep a lookout for all of you and yes the radio works fine for vintage sort of age but the vfo does shit up/ down  only by 1 so just keep an eye on it

Make sure you don't overdrive the audio input so you don't end up with a splattering signal. Set the meter to show ALC, start transmitting a CQ with zero audio input and increase the TX audio it until you get to the power output the radio is set for. You should see only a flickering of the ALC meter.
