Heard you fine, Scott. Nice loud 559. MY signal with full was quite
a bit lower and faded out the last ten minutes of the pass for some
reason. Of course only PNW-CA-AK and Siberia in view.
Took me some time to find myself - rusty! I started with SSB
-oops! All I hear is CW. No problem but lost a couple more minutes
getting set up. The sub-tune knob on the FT-847 tunes too slow to
move very far. I swapped VFO's to speed that after I found myself
several KHz low. There was a way to tune the Tx with the VFO, but I
forgot how that goes.
looks like there is a common window with Moscow western Russia,
Finland and Sweden at the end of the pass.
My guess without a yagi I will be limited to the center of the pass.
Ready to try again on Saturday (Dec.19 0100 utc). Tnx I forgot how
much fun this is!
