On the air..
« on: July 30, 2016, 09:19:31 AM »
Hello, I am listening to 14285 right now until 15:00 UTC, using the RT320 and whip antenna.

Let's keep this thread for on-the-air announcements..

Hi guys,
I'm monitoring 10.114 at the moment but if anybody wants to try another band I'm open to anything. It's 17:56 UTC right now and I will be at radio for another hour or so.

Sure, whenever you like. I only occasionally get into France. Living about as far way from either coast as a guy can get, and running a lowish OCF dipole doesn't make my QTH and station a DX eating combo.

The PRC-320 Yahoo group uses WhatsApp for impromptu skeds.. I don't like the privacy implications but it works.. I'll post something about it soon..

I just had a QSO with a french station on 14.040. If he's actually in france then the band must be open as he gave me a good RST and i'm running 100W into an inverted v OCF dipole.

Propagation has been decent lately. I made one contact with NC using my RT-320 with the 2.5m whip! Not on the air tonight unfortunately..

As a Mac user, I was recently warned about using WhatsApp (maybe more things are called WhatsApp, but here goes):
