Ran my TONER cartridge out of ink trying to print out the help files for it!!!
yep, all that is clear. Followed the guide to the letter, but that doesn't mean it works!
My Radio Shack is CURSED. I must have beaten some RB out in a pileup and he was a WITCH and put a curse on me!
Spent some time again today listening to the pileups. Do people really don't know how to change their transmit frequency?
It's not the folks who can't figure out split operation - they eventually figure out what button to push.
It's the people who park on one frequency incessantly calling with no regard to figuring out where the KH1 is listening. And I noticed it on both SSB and CW today.
Nailed them on 20 CW, tried on 15M, will try again tommorrow. Light sigs on 15M
Works for me--got them on 20m FT8 this afternoon.
Tried this evening on 20 meters SSB - Lots of noise but he responded back on my first try. Some lids did not realize the OP was working split. The pile-up was not as bad as last night. So an ATNO on SSB!!! Now to break out the key and try for a CW contact. I may try FT8, but would rather get an RTTY contact.
God luck and 73,
I spent most of the evening with FT8 calling on 20 meters with no luck. Then when they called CQ EU, I knew that I wouldn't be getting through anytime soon, so I switched to 30 meters where the propagation conditions were good and within a few minutes had a contact! Be flexible, keep trying, and good luck.
So I worked them on 20m FT8 as an ATNO. Fine.
But I miss that satisfaction after getting a rare one in a big CW pile up after hours of trying, swearing, gnawing at the edge of my station desk when the DQRMers and Uppers bury the DX.
I wonder when they are going to upload their log? The website says 'Frequently'.
I've worked them on 20 and 40 SSB. I hate to work a dupe for insurance, but if they don't upload soon I'm going to do it.
