Thanks to you and the FUNcube team for the extended period
of transponder time over the Easter holiday. It was nice to
have the transponder available for a demonstration last
night at a nearby college. Using my FT-817ND, SDRplay RSP1,
and an 8-inch Windows 10 tablet running HDSDR, I was able
to work two Mexican stations and a station in Las Vegas.
The crowd saw the tablet's screen, where the transponder
and the digital telemetry were easy to pick out of the
waterfall display.
