Back on Bpsk31
Well - I finally sat down today (Wednesday) and made an effort to get set back up and run some Psk - I think i was being "Idle" if the truth was known as for some reason I had it in the back of my mind that QRP PSK was actually not very successful - but I carefully went through the set-up procedure paying careful attention to ALC levels - quickly re-checked the power out and found that my Macros had not been set up, forgetting that I was now using MixW - this is the Software that I had taken a look at two years ago and liked the look of it but never actually got it running. I still was'nt sure about it but spent the best part of an hour or so setting it up - it is different to HRD - just the one program but with plenty to learn - I was finding the latest versions of HRD too complex - too many windows and tabs to navigate besides which it was now dragging my old laptop down - I did however download FLDigi which I'd played with on my Linux box and will be giving that a run soon. Any how back to Psk - I double checked the macro's - tested them by performing a dry run on screen then found the tail end of a Qso and called in - !st call straight into OK2BQX 599 followed immediately with a call into OE6JFG 579 both ways - I was very pleased ! Time was pushing on so I closed for the day but I retired with that glow of satisfaction - It's starange but I had the feeling you get when you've made your first qso. With regards to MixW - Thumbs up ! So - for the next 10 days or so I'm going to be giving this mode a good run and see how many qso's we make - Hope cond'x hold up !
