    Me? I'm listening to the crummy prop I'm having on 20m, hoping it improves by the weekend. Considering loading up the antenna system for 6 to listen to higher frequency static.

    6m was very busy today:


    10m was very busy today:


    No need to stay parked in dismal 20m-land. :)

    I worked ZP5DBC on 6M yesterday and got his LoTW QSL today for #52 on the Magic Band!

    Higher frequency static is calming and soothing.

    I built a DRA-36 USB soundcard adapter for my FT-817 (and TM-D700A if I can't get the TNC fixed). Packet seems to work with no issues but VARA FM is giving me trouble. I need to see if it's something with the node I'm trying to connect to or if it's something with VARA FM or the DRA-36 itself, though the latter seems unlikely.

    Further to my comment on Wednesday , it appears that the website thought I had put this thread on "ignore" ----- maybe "iPad derangement syndrome!"

    I didn't realise you could ignore a complete thread!

    Anyway, "all's well that ends well!"

    Ignore entire threads?

    Awesome! How did you do it? ;)

    Turns out it actually was the DRA-36, though not a hardware fault. All I needed to do was tweak the TX volume so that it just hits the maximum level on the FT-817's modulation meter and VARA FM started working without any issues. :cool: I'm used to volume settings not mattering too much for FM digital modes (unlike HF), but maybe that's just true for packet.
