Remote CQWW160 with N1MM
So was another contest over with more testing. This time we tested SO1V and SO2V with N1MM. There are clearly some issues remaining on SO2R but So2V worked fine.
Here are the results after 6 hours of operating:
The rate was quite OK. Conds were so and so.
Matt NQ6N has developed a, Flex API based, remote keyer that provides local sidetone both with a winkeyer and, as I here verify, N1MM.
A video describing how well it works at as short test is shown on my YouTube channel.
A schematic of the wiring is given here.
Here it is if you want to look at it.
Well, now it is over. Boy the conditions were poor. I almost throw in the towel at 2 clock in the morning when the rates went under 50 QSO:s per hours.
Here are what I managed to do. With SO3R for the first time ever. It was cool to have some good runs 1st hours.
This shows how easy it is with Flex and 4o3a to make a rather complex contest set-up with a few items.
This is a nice contest to test new techniques and equipment. But it requires some band conditions of course to work SA.
I made at 19 years my 1st DX-pedtion to KL7 and visited a lot of KL7s. Unforgettable.
What a surprise with nice 160 and 80 m condx. After 6,40 hours here are the results:
With only 2 hrs of remote operation we could do some testing with N1MM and new settings (for the upcoming ARRL CW Contest). Good rates for most of the time.
Condx were average with some US stations coming through.
