4292Help Out the 'Newbies'.. Decoding MS..
- Jan 31, 2008OK.. as I have been In-Active for 15yrs or so.. I had no Idea what
FSK or JT65 was! To me.. FSK was "Frequency Shift Keying" ! And it
still may as well be!
As a 'Newbie'.. I find the biggest problem on MS is knowing
the R26 I just Decoded as 'Noise' or a 'Static Crash'..
Is it not possible to Add.. R26 de VE6CPP for example? Even RRR or
73 de VE6CPP?
At least when we see the R26 and a call.. we will know we are Rx'g
it from the Station we are trying to Contact?
Also.. Can we refer to each 'Completed Contact'.. as "A Contact" and
not a QSO..? I know, a contest Scenario consists of a Call and 59..
That is a 'Contact'.. When we exchange the equipment, weather, our
2nd Cousin Twice Removed, Married to your Cousin's 2nd Cousin.. That
is "A QSO"
If my one PC is doing the work.. and I am checking my e-mail, or
just Web Browsing on the other.. Did I make a QSO.. or just a
Dont get me wrong.. I enjoy the Mode.. and am 'Still Learning'.. And
the 'Best Help' is from "All the Guys on Ping Jockey"..
Ive amassed a Total of 12 in a Month..6 over 1000mi and one at

I was just thinking.. as this Mode Gets More Popular..(and there
is 'Plenty of Interest now that the Locals have heard I can
work 1200mi+ on 2M..)
Isn't there an easier way to help the 'Newbies'?
Just my thoughts.. 73 and look forward to working you 'All Soon'
