Re: File - Any Reports on 30 mtr contacts?
- Hi Don and all,
the conditions here in Northern Europe have been poor to dismal during daytime; they used to improve by about 1800z allowing for QSOs with JA and other Asian regions. I did not hear any stateside calls and only faint ones from LU too weak to work them.
Of the about 50 QSOs during the past 10 days I selected the following ones, omitting most of the ubiquitous BPSK:

In this context under poor condx the Contestia mode 8/250 has proven to be extremely reliable under QRM, QRN and QSB, with rare garbage print when signal levels went down to "below the grass". ROS 16/500 was good, too, but too rare to give me a trustworthy base for judging its performance.
Since I started calling CQ in Contestia about a couple of months ago, I had about 10 QSOs with hams who told me that it were their first QSO in this mode. Certainly this was possible only due to me calling with TX-RSID enabled, and very gratifying.
