Re: PSK during FD
- Sunday, I went to one of the local Clubs Field day
sites, and asked is anyone doing PSK?
One of the men had a portable setup in his car that we hooked up, and did do some PSK contacts.
I wonder why so many people can't wait for 15 seconds,
before sending CQ CQ again?
I was using unfamiliar equipment, and a darn laptop, with a built in mouse, it took a while for me to get the cq stations call sign
entered into the digipan call box.
I whined that I needed a mouse and my one Friend went to his home a mile away and came back with one.
Lots of noise from Thunderstorms made it tough too.
