Hello to the group from Mark – N9WYS, just SW of Chicago!
I joined the group yesterday (although it could have been Tuesday – I suffer from “CRS” at times – hi) because of my keen interest in PSK on 20 and 40. I’m very interested in seeing how well PSK propagates on 30. As far as a sked involving ME goes, my work varies by the day, so it is very difficult for me to determine whether I can make the Thursday evening sked or not. Also, I volunteer to the county EMA up here in Will County and we meet on Thursday evenings every week. Oh well – I’ll be out there; I guess I’ll just have to catch things as I can.
As far as my station, I am running a TenTec Omni VI with a Buxcomm Rascal interface; MixW for the software and a Butternut HF-6V antenna. FWIW - I’ve been able to work as far as Australia on 20m off that vertical!
Hope to catch you all sometime soon on the band! BTW – Don, you’re practically in my back yard! ;-)
