I’m seeing tons of Sporadic ‘E’ activity (Es) on FT8 digi mode on 6. Running wsjtx. 50.313MHz.
Would be interested if anyone sees a double-hop – or further – as per Chris Deacon’s talk. Paths open to Finland this morning so maybe the JA path will open up.
Also how it compares to 10m, 4m, 2m. Haven’t seen any FT8 on 4m.
What’s interesting is WSPR seems dead on 6 but FT8 is hopping.
Ant is slim jim strung from a tree; motorola mc micro + 21.4MHz IF tap into a funcube dongle. wsjtx-1.9.0-rc3 on Ubuntu Linux 17.4 on Dell M4400 2.8MHz Core2 laptop. Rx only. For now…
Very strong signals so Ian NXJ won’t be getting much sleep in the shack. With those sort of signal strengths, FM 51.51MHz calling will open up.
