    I would like to thank QRP Labs for all their help in setting up the N4EME Rovers DIGI beacons using the U3S. Our 6m one has been running from the club shack KM4HAM in FL for almost a year on JT65a and CW and this last week we got our 222 beacon set up at N2EME for testing in JT65b and CW. Tonight I started on the 2m beacon which will run JT65b and CW too. What impressed our club the most, apart from the assistance offered by QRP Labs, was that the beacons put both the DIGI modes and the RF out so all we have to do is add the amp and the antenna. Now that QRP Labs also have JT4 available we will be working with other clubs to set up some JT4 uW beacons. We receive lots of feedback on how straight the JT65 signal is (we use the QRP Labs QLG1 GPS RX to keep the beacons on frequency) and how nice it is to get a real S/N reading on the beacons rather than an "it sounds like...".

    BTW my daughter loves to follow the WSPR BALLOONS that use your transmitters as they try to make it around the world.

    Thank you.
    Paul N2EME
