anybody else catch the dx to euro EA today?

Phil Anderson
 

Thought the bands were dead today at 2 PM so mowed the yard.
Came back in and noticed on www.dxmaps.com that 20/15/and 10
had some openings.

Got on 15m first and kept hearing CQ "EA" and call. Turned to the
WA7BNM contest site and found EA is a Spain "test," noting that
no-spain stations should send RST and a nr. That opened
the DX gate:  OH6DEO, EF0JC, HN7Q (IRAQ), EF8U, PY2YU,
SP9LJD, and more. What fun! Iraq was a new one for me.

Most of this is enabled by the many DX oriented sites on the web.

It got me thinking again about the talk at Ozarkcon on Reverse
Beacon Networks. Neat stuff.

Paul Smith
 

I found, loaded and installed the fldigi no problem. I also got all the cords hooked between the computer. Should I be able to hear audio in an earphone at the out jack of the warbler? I don't.... I did find my instructions and will read and study them this weekend and see what direction to go. Heck I am not sure the audio in and out is set in the computer so I have some more looking and learning in Ubuntu. Back to the desk and get to reading. I had the pig on all evening but never heard any signals. I cqed a little but no takers.... Cu tomorrow.

Hi Rick,

Coupla things...

You can run your XP machine forever with impunity as long as you don't
connect it to the internet. Use it just for your ham radio. The big
issue is going to be security vulnerabilities with exposure to the
internet.

If you do switch to Linux you may find that a lot of your MS Windows ham
software will run in WINE. Wine is the Linux support system for MS
Windows programs to run in Linux. It's not an emulator and some things
won't work well or even not at all. Don't try to run the Windows Office
Suite stuff under WINE. Or internet explorer (who would wanna run
that!). I have had most of the SDR and DSP software running in WINE.
Software for the digital modes, too. So if you have some favorites that
don't have a Linux version you might find that it will run just fine in
WINE. Spectran and Spectrum Lab are two that I like very well and have
no Linux versions. Both run perfectly in WINE. Just a couple of examples.

73,

Bill KU8H

Speaking of PSK

Robert
 

http://www.smallwonderlabs.com/

I was poking around on the web and ended up on dave benson's web page and see that he is offering his little PSK rig to someone to take over, he outlines the things he believes need to be updated and modified, I bet the engineers associated with 4 state could make short work of the necessary changes, and I think it would be a fun kit, and might increase participation on the Wed night PSK net, I know I would like one

Just a thought

I normally use the SignaLink USB with my QRO rig.

FLDIGI is a nice pretty much all around program for most of the digital modes.

I have added JT65-HF , software, just this week, since it seems to be gaining popularity. Many stations on 30 meters running it.

This is my first experience transmitting with it, but I did use it for receiving this past winter on the 600/630 meter and below bands. A good program from my experience with it over the winter.

Re: PSK talk

Paul:

I just tried to install fldigi on my older Ubuntu system (10-04) and I got an error about a missing library.  Then I tried it on version 14-04 (just released last month) and it installs fine.  Don't go to the fldigi website to get the software.  Click on "Ubuntu software center" and do a search for fldigi.  It will find it.  As I said, it installs FB with the new version.  You may have trouble with an older version, but if it isn't as old as mine, it may still work.  I'm trying out 14-04 on a different PC first, to see if I can get used to the new user interface before biting the bullet and upgrading this one.

Good luck and 72,
