|Using software with a wanna be computer|
|First JT9 QSO|
The highlight happened to be that we were both QRP and both portable. Sean was camping with his family at his favorite winter spot and I was running my indoor setup with my portable equipment. It's great to be able to decode and run either JT9 or JT65 within one program. JT9 takes up much less bandwidth and works well with low power and minimal setups like mine. You can see from the dB reporting in the screenshot above that I was not hearing stations very strong. Gotta love weak signal software. Living at the base of mountains that nearly surround me, I don't find the bands very cooperative. I believe it's time to install a wire or two outdoors which may help a bit.
