Although, we are still having some issues here in Europe as I have noticed
that some stations are diging multi callsigns by with -1 -2 -3 prefixes! I
still cannot hit PCSAT with my Kenwood TH-D7 on 5 watts using a 4 ele beam..
I have seen a Scottish station digi via FINDU,. but wonder if he is getting
in before the footprint hits the mainland Europe.. I'll try again Friday..
All the best,
P.S. Can I just check for the D7 what the path should be! Just wide2-2?

Yes, if your T/R turn around delay is not too bad. Right now,
PCSAT has a TXD set to 12 or only 120 ms between hearing a
packet and transmitting it. Most rigs should turn around that

For the last wee, the only path that is set up now is via
WIDEn-N. SO WIDE2-2 should work fine. All the other paths will
not work now. This is because WIDEn-N has a built-in dupe
ignore capability so those people who are trasnmitting too many
dupes will get ignored for one minute after each success..
