Any Adventures you and your radio have taken recently / Re: Gave FT8 a try

Hi Ron,

I'll have to give that a try to see how far I can get at 1 watt.  I overlook the Crestmoor school site and have a fairly clear view North/NorthEast.

I've occasionally transmitted an FT8 beacon at just 1W (30 dBm) using a 20M wire vertical antenna overlooking Crestmoor canyon.  Even at QRP levels, my signal occasionally gets spotted on pskreporter as far away as NY and HI.

Hi All,

I just found out about the San Bruno Amateur Radio Club.  I've been licensed since 1990.  My current QTH is in San Bruno, up on Crestmoor 1 (my FCC mailing address is still at my office in Santa Clara). 

My current interests are in QRP and Software Defined Radio.  I have a wire antenna in the back yard for 20M HF, a discone antenna on the roof for my 2M HT, and am learning to operate FT8.  You can occasionally find my WSPR beacon experiments listed on wsprnet.org. 

I also develop iPhone apps, and have a few amateur radio related apps in Apple's App store (under the developer name "HotPaw").  If any club members want to try them out (some cost money), drop me a line, and I can provide free promotional codes.

73,
Ron

Introduce Yourself / K6TET becomes W6SY

My new call sign is W6SY.  But 'round these parts, I'll still use the TangoEchoTango handle. 

I figured I'd apply before they start charging application fees.  I got lucky in the vanity call sign lottery.

What are you up to / I have a new antenna in the yard
« Last post by kn6koo on May 19, 2021, 08:39:18 AM »
I'm working on a radio project. So far I've added a new radio/antenna in my yard that is connecting to an east bay radio link.  Here's a pic of it and as I get it set up I'll explain more about it. We'll call this a "teaser" for now.

Ted,

Do you think it would work with say a Yaesu 991?
