Re: Help!!...NBN Interference

Okay update: NBN appointed technician for 'insurance' jobs came and installed the new ODU on the roof that was second hand but had spent some time in the Erikson engineering section. He did this after confirming that it was the ODU and not the SM power supply WIFI etc. It has improved the situation ...

Re: HELL on Tuesday!

Yes I nearly forgot it was Tuesday as well after a busy ANZAC Day! 5 stations on Myself, VK3EDM, VK2EIK, VK5ZT and another. Propagation was poor and I was distracted by a shack visit from local F call VK3FETS who enjoyed seeing the contacts and the doubling where you could read two stations over the...

Re: The future for amateur radio in VK

Yes Wayne I agree only use the power you need should underlie this as it does in the US with their 1500W PEP limit. However I bet there are times when more power on CW or RTTY than 120W would have allowed a contact to be made. PS I don't see why contests are special? I would think a contact needed o...

Re: The future for amateur radio in VK

The 1KW high power SSB trial completion included, if my memory serves me, a line from the ACMA saying that not many applied for the trial so it can't be of much interest........ :eh: This was wrong, the trial was promoted as just that, a trial for a few to try, it cost more $ and the implication was...

Very interesting to see and hear the differences between signals and to see the VK7s disappear at s...

Re: HELL on Tuesday!

I quickly cobbled together a mobile station - TS480HX - old laptop and a mobile whip on boot lid and operated from Nyora in Sth Gippsland. Decodes for the time I spent on air were good VK2EIK / VK2DUX. I still need to get smoother with operating FLdigi though...... See you all next week from the hom...

Re: HELL on Tuesday!

Excellent John, hope to hear you.

I MAY have to operate portable due to work but it will be interesting to see how HELL works with a mobile whip or a squid pole!

Re: HELL on Tuesday!

nice screen shot, I didn't take one but the VK2's were better than this at my QTH and the VK3's with IF DSP noise reduction were black letters on pure white background with no phasing (slanting of writing) issues at all two lines of text like they were typed on the screen, very impressive. I await a...
