2014-12-30 First HF voice (phone) contact 5 years ago
After a lot of digital mode contacts (QSOs) I actually talked to someone today on HF radio. I heard UR5QW calling CQ on 10 meters HF in SSB (single side band). I was trying to find interesting stations via the Websdr in Twente but I actually heard UR5QW via the radio first and answered and we had a short but understandable QSO. Searching for interesting signals via the websdr in Twente can be frustrating: it has less local noise than I have at home, so it can be I can understand a station via the websdr but not at home.
