144200 the former centre of activity...

Well it was easy to fix the problem, just a short circuit in the tx feeder where the QRO had softened the coax dielectric on a tight bend..... So back on for a few Persieds...? Well I spent hours calling on 144200 and then calling "27 27 27" on sked but nil qso's in the log. Seems 99.99% of activity is on WSJT which is a pity, I hope some return to SSB soon....maybe it will be like pop music in the 1980's when everyone went mad about synthesisers but the phase passed and the real human feeling you only get from guitars/drums and vocals won out over digital. I liked synth too for a while, but not any more...........I guess that the danger is that, unlike music, when people get bored with digital radio they just qrt, I hope this doesn't happen.

Stop Press QSO complete at 23:30UTC with I8MPO! Hurrah and tnx Lucio!

I do not wsjt = mashine/computer qso, not valid for me, just for test/studies.
I prefere Human contact so ssb or (i m bad in) cw.
We are in 2004 modern time but we must not forget what is the radio "relation-ship" human contact all arround the world.
