I got a deal on a TE Systems amplifier that I couldn’t pass up. My buddy Tim helped me test the setup.
Rod couldn’t make it all the way to Portland driving his big rig without timing out, so he had to stop just north of Salem, Or. We tried different bands …
I was working the 222 Spring Sprint and took a break to join the Pacific NW Weak Signal Net on 144.240.
I built a 1.25M yagi a while back and wanted to do a little testing. So, I hopped on the local 222 SSB net.
Another test and general playing around with different modes.
My buddy Tim got a new radio and wanted to test out 2M SSB.
I was finally able to do a proper SOTA activation. And by that, I mean one that was planned. This was on Three Corner Rock in SW Washington.
We had been trying for hours to figure out why he couldn’t hear me when I connected to the D-Star repeater in Phoenix. We finally made it happen.
We wanted to try out 40 Meters and 80 Meters so I made a couple videos to show him how his signal was getting out locally.
My buddy put up a new 40 meter dipole so of course we had to test it.
