Station Report Spring 2016

Both of our stations are fully operational. We only borrowed one Elecraft K3 radio and a few small items for our field day setup but they are all back in place at this time. The Ten-Tec Jupiter was used only on CW for the entire event. One Elecraft K3 was used on SSB only and the second K3 was used on SSB/CW. This combination of our main radios worked very well for us with a minimum amount of cross radio interference. Our station team sincerely hopes the tower project will move forward in the near future, we have some great contests coming up for the fall/winter season. On a slightly different note, if you have been on HF lately you must have noticed how poor the bands have been in recent weeks. This is an excellent time to try some soundcard digital modes such as PSK, JT-9 or JT-65. These modes are very efficient and can provide good QSO’s under poor conditions.
