A52SJ Bhutan News 14 October 2017

I have WSJT-X FT8 mode now working. Had a small pileup on me at 2300Z, working R7DA, PE1RNU, RM3DA within a few minutes. They are in ClubLog now. Then called CQ NA on 1826.5 from 2300 to 2330Z, nothing heard. Then the sun came up.

Last night I called CQ NA from 1250Z to 1430Z, heard nothing except JT5DX again on 1822.

With poor cdx on 160M CW right now, A Index of 39, our only hope might be FT8. If you are already set up for digital modes, you should be able to set up FT8 and make a few practice Q’s in a few hours’ time.

Tonight I will check CW frequencies 1826.5/1829.5 for a few minutes starting at 1300Z. If no joy on CW, I will start on FT8 no later than 1315Z on 1840 KHz.

73,
Steve
