Just had my one shot for the morning and got an excellent signal, with AOS
and LOS within seconds of predicted. The original keps are good enough for
automatic frequency tracking, but it seemed to work better riding the VFO
manually. There were a few deep fades which responded to reversing the
The RASCAL program is slick, and nicely accessed the servers to upload the
data. The indicated center frequency seems to bounce around a lot which
makes it less useful than it might be for centering. However, a couple of
minutes learning, and you can keep the sync indicator on.
Congratulations to the Delfi-C3 team!
