From Stu – G4IYK
I decided to record the net this week which meant listening and not necessarily transmitting. I was hoping to obtain some live examples of the difference in quality between my own set up and the RX at Hack Green. I didn’t manage that, due a problem with the recording set up but the recording below shows the quality of signals at HGR.
The experiment continues – Both Gordon and Jack have started to experiment. Here is a link to the website.
Various results have been reported – I note different results with different browsers. My own set up is Google Chrome and its important to note Java is up to date and working – see the instructions on site. In times ahead I am sure this is going to become an important technology. I donated using the donate button on the site to help fund it – mainly because it has given me a good steer as to the performance of my own equipment.
I had a QSO this morning with Ian, G6TGO in Manchester and again it highlighted the difference. Coordinating between the TX and RX is an issue and making sure you have a headset connected to the PC is quite important as echo and feedback are easily introduced.
Listen Out – Heard During the Week
I managed to catch Dave Ferrigan – G3ZYV while listening on 60M on 10th May at 1340 Local calling on CW. Dave hasn’t been active for a few years but has restored his ICOM Rig.
Heard on Net…
Mike, G4ICC activated G3RE during VE day – it would be interesting to review the log and I have asked for a copy with a view to publishing it.
