Changes for July, 3

30 June, 2010

Sometimes, the first characters in the message are broken:

>> RX1: 19:28 @ 5.4 Hz: O4WGT <STOP> -34 dB
>> RX1: 19:33 @ 5.4 Hz: G4WGT <STOP> -31 dB

This problem will be fixed from July 3 at 00:00:01 UTC with some changes in the ROS protocol. You only have to renove your old ROS version.

England-South Africa on 30 meters

26 June, 2010

Great QSO reported by Dave, G3ZXX. 9035 km between England and South Africa (Ben ZS6ANZ) on 10144. Congratulations!

Just thought that it might be NEWS worthy, but I’ve just had a QSO with Ben ZS6ANZ, on 10144.

Contact was initially established using 8/500 but we had to change to 4/500 to complete the QSO.

Cheers &amp; 73
