Just a quick update on how the GQ1VDP call is going. I have been exclusively working on FT8 for now, maybe some RTTY next week before I go to Friedrichshafen.
So after just a few days, and getting on air around my work schedule, I have made over 300 contacts using just 100w from my TS590SG into a Dual Beam Pro at 20ft – it still amazes me how well this antenna works. The contacts range from across Europe to the Middle East and Asia, North and South America.
Keep looking for me around the usual FT8 frequencies, and on the RTTY frequency around 14088/21088 give or take QRM.
