Yesterday I QSO'd with Gus, 35NB001. Each of us were operating mobile. Mine is the AT-6666, coax, and mobile antenna (don't know what brand). Rogers, AR to the Netherlands, 4643 miles. Not my farthest, but definitely a fun mobile DX contact.
27.395 LSB
Those Anytone 6666’s are great radios. That’s what I have in my mobile. I’m about 2 hours south of Houston and I make contacts in Australia on a weekly basis on 38 lsb. In my mobile with a at-6666, fatboy 4 pill with a 6 foot skip shooter on a workman triple magnet mount. Most of the time on side band I don’t run the amp. But if I’m having trouble getting to someone I’ll turn it on. Im not driving it to the fullest and I get voltage drop from the stock electrical in my car so I do about 380 watts rms and 700 pep with the amp. Just the radio 55 watts rms and 120 pep.

    10M BAND.....>28400 SSB .... Always give your full callsign. Listening is the key so be sure we call you before replying. 3Y0J will always listen up (using split) so it will be useless to call us on our transmission frequency.
  • @ BJ radionut:
    I like these guys already. :cool: Sounds to me like ROBO callers in ANY Mode will be ignored!!!!(y)
  • @ BJ radionut:
    3Y0J: Update January 29, 2023: Ken estimates Marama should arrive at Bouvet on Monday evening just before sunset. He says he anticipates a good weather window for at least two days then. The team will attempt to move the equipment and supplies onto the island using the zodiac then. They have two zodiacs. They are hoping to accomplish it in those two days. :cool:
