FT8/FT4 Operating Tips (my preferences): 

  • Use "Hold Tx Freq" and DO NOT TX on my calling frequency
  • Call me with TX2 to save a step, especially if conditions aren't great.  Going to direct to TX2 puts you up on my calling list!!
  • Sometimes if we are having issues completing a contact, sync your clock in the middle of your transmission to me.  I do it when there are issues and for whatever reason, it works many times.
  • Turn on your split (I personally only use "Fake It" with my 7610 and 7300).

**NEW** -- Got the Mosely TA-54-XL w/30m installed on the 68ft tower (temps were 30-40f):
