Took me a long time to get that one also, good for you! I got it just recently also. You know it would be a LOT easyer to work if there werent so many LAZY BEACONS on 145.825 which basicly have killed NO-44 to the point where two way Qso is impossible and a short raw packet alone is as you have seen pretty hard to do.
Anyway glad to see someone else is actually trying and not setting there BEACONS and walking away from their station....:)
