Now the propagation is increasing, radios becoming a lot more interesting. Recently, I’ve gotten interested in the new mode WSPR, and it has been a lot of fun. I’ve been having quite a lot of technical problems with my radios of late. My Kenwood 2000 had a problem with its audio, and then I shipped it back. UPS crushed the radio on the way over there, and I’m having to file a claim so it looks like my luck with radios is not very good. The icon radio that I’m using the 706 Mark 2 now has an audio problem. When I listen to it after a while it has an intermittent problem that sounds like it’s switching to FM mode and the audio sounds fuzzy but still has plenty of volume and also sounds like there’s a spurious signal like when you tune to the side of someone who’s running too much power and splatter. I don’t know what the problem is but I need to talk to someone who does. Maybe one day I will get straightened out but anyway, the old Kenwood 430 is doing a good job, and I’m still relying on it. I guess the fancy new rigs have a multitude of problems.
It was excellent propagation this morning and 10 m wide open to many other parts of the wall. 10 m is his really been good of late and I’ve enjoyed it a lot.
