Subject: [4sqrp] Bayou Jumper First QSO!
Completed the build about an hour ago, took awhile to find the oscillator on the IC-728, ended up high by about 200 kHz so squeezed the coil, adjusted C30. Now tuning 7010-7160 which suits me. Plugged in a 7.050 FT243 crystal, transmits on 7.049. Not having much luck with the spotting procedure, need more practice I suppose. Used the IC728 to get the receiver close to transmit frequency. QRL a few times, coast was clear so CQ a few times. K5ZSI about 130 miles from me answered, gave me a 569 report.
