It's been about a year since I have operated using PSK31. When I started out on HF I decided on PSK31 since it combined my interest in computers with that of amateur radio. When I took an interest in contesting, I upgraded all components of my station, added an amplifier (free, was a hand me down Alpha 76PA from my father) and started learning the ropes. While I have not given up contesting, the past few days working 14.070 I have a renewed interest in PSK31. I have been very pleased with the activity within the US, especially states I had never worked in 2 years operating using the mode. I have even been able to pick up EU at only 20 watts. I guess that is one reason why I enjoy the hobby, it's so diverse! You can use one mode, put it away and come back to it at a later date. BTW anyone seen AC4BB's update on working all counties in the US using PSK31?
