Terrestrial storms have ended in my area but are back for all of us. Managed this with Mike at US-0660 Merritt Island, FL to the shores of the Ohio River at Louisville, KY. USA

@qrper I turned on my radio when I came home for lunch today when you were on 20 meters, however I didn't even see any activity on 14.074 (FT8) on the scope. Did we have another solar flare hit?

@Josefius hello Joe. No filter. Never took advantage of getting one when they were readily available. I've had my FT817 since 2004

@N4JAW@mastodon.radio avatar

@Josefius Oh I've seen them for sale over the years but I guess I'm just use to operating without them since I was first licensed back in the 60's. I've got them on my Ten Tec rigs st the shack and my FT891 buy rarely use it.

@AE4WX There'll be more times to come. I may be out tomorrow and maybe Monday and Tuesday depending on how bad the CME effects forecasted to hit those days.

Good news, the radio club president (KR3LL) and friend works at Kicker and took my LCD module and de-soldered it after which I was able to complete the assembly. It all fits in the case and aligns perfect. I was able to tune it fine. However I'm not getting any RF power out, I can receive fine when connected to an antenna. Do you have any recommendations for tracing the issue?

I need to take the "Big Dog" out more often. It handles the bands so smoothly into an using the 49:1 transformer and easy sending using the American Morse Equipment

I haven't used Walt's 100 Watt 49:1 transformer in awhile. Going to take out for a ride today to see how it handles this morning's band conditions.

@N4JAW@mastodon.radio avatar

Rough day for most activators no matter the band. Even tough for operators. Still nice to enjoy a beautiful day.
