Again, today, 4/21/22, another great QRP contact on 15m - 21.300 mhz.
PV8AL, Hello, in Brazil using 5 watts. My conditions were the uBitx v 6.1 and Imax 2000 @ 37' to the coax connector.
Total distance from me, 3,313 miles.

Yesterday, 4/20/22,
Just for the fun of it, I had a Cleveland Ohio (485 miles) contact, NX8T, on 20m running 3 watts out of my uBitx QRP rig yesterday, and a N. Cal (1386 miles) contact on 27.385 LSB at 1 watt today.
Gotta love when < 5 watts talks all around.
The antenna for these two is a end fed non-resonant wire sloping 16' to 7'.

    There will be NO FT8 robots running unattended at Bouvet,:ROFLMAO:
  • @ BJ radionut:
    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:
