2016-03-06 Weak signals and faraway ears1 year ago
pskreporter for JT65 from PD4KH on 20160306 I hung the endfed antenna outside today to try to be heard better in the Open Ukraine RTTY Championship 2016 but the whole contest was over before I could get much use out of it. This had nothing to do with the contest but everything with me trying it unprepared. I made 11 contacts.

So I tried something else: get active on 20 meter JT65 with WSJT-X. I saw interesting far away callsigns, even from Hong Kong and South Africa. I was also heard in faraway places including Australia according to pskreporter! This is what this weak-signal mode can do. Downside is that the simple exchange of callsigns and signal reports takes 6 minutes.
