Hi, I'm a newbie and need help I'm wanting to test my configuration more. So far I have only made 3 successful QSO, all the way to UT. I can be heard all the way down to Southern California. I don't seem to be able to make it past Rocky Mountains though. However my CQs doesn't get answered, and my answering CQs seems ignored. I'd like to eliminate my configuration as the prime suspect. I'm logging QSOs manually at QRZ for now, have just applied for LoTW this week. We can coordinate the QSO via Skype, or phone (I'll call). If you can help please email me at: cmsamsi at hotmail dot com Thank you, Caesar.
