Digital "Field Day" 2017 New article up.
« on: June 27, 2017, 03:35:54 AM »
Hello Operators
 I just posted a new article on Field Day 2017, which may be interesting to some of you and this forum.
 Now unlike ARRL field day in North America, I approached field day from Comms preparedness and digital Comms perspectives. My goal was to use a very specific digital mode or digital system (FSQ), to establish effective low-power communications with two stations (Norway & Netherlands ) using an off-grid, solar powered, qrp field station.
I also want to reach out to thank PE4BAS & LB9YH, for unwittingly helping me to prove or disprove my station capabilities, during what we called "Digital Field Day".

Here’s a breakdown of the goals

- Testing FSQ for Effective low-power data Communications in the field.
- Testing the PowerFilm F15-1200.
- Testing the Genasun GV-5 with a protected 4s LiFePO4 pack.
- Testing the effectiveness of the Chameleon P-LOOP 2.0 with the Booster kit.
