PSK31 is on 20 m (daytime) 14.070 mhz. Make sure you have the radio in USB.

Also 40 m, 7.070 mhz for USA, 7.035 mhz for DX (Europe). Also make sure radio is in USB for digital modes in the 40 and 80 m bands as well.

40 m works into the evening, too.

80 m, night only, 3.58 mhz, and USB for digital.

I'm xmitting, my transceiver is pushing it out. I see people calling CQ, but this HRD is complicated. Not sure how to answer them.

Oh well, going to watch some football & hit the sack all, thanks anyway.

I'll fire it up tomorrow.

I saw the W station and then my signal wiped out my router settings


I'm back for now. Shall I try again?

I see you trying but just not making it. What is your wattage?

[Last Edit: 10/26/2013 6:25:40 PM EST by Brundoggie]
I keep answering but I guess I'm just not pushing enough watts. Only 20w, my max on this antenna.
Link Posted: 10/26/2013 6:26:27 PM EST
Oh ok well thats cool. I am doing about 25w myself. I think that is standard for the mode.

I see oh wait...
Link Posted: 10/26/2013 6:28:55 PM EST
getting back to the WH6 station. And sorry I'm actually on my loop antenna not the 5btv
Link Posted: 10/26/2013 6:33:03 PM EST
WOOHOO!
Link Posted: 10/26/2013 6:34:18 PM EST
I'm on Oahu working my AlexLoop so my power is limited. I'm sure the signal would have been stronger at my Big Island QTH. Still... pretty amazing for only 20w.

Thanks for the QSO!
Link Posted: 10/26/2013 6:40:00 PM EST
I may have pushed a couple of watts over rated max.

I was using the loop that is laying on the roof of my house. I could have gone w/ the 5BTV but my SWRs are not so good there right now. Working on that.

That's why I usually stay on 20w with the AlexLoop, I get consistent 1.1 SWR with it on that band.
