QRP and VP6D

18. 11. 25

Chris AA8CH worked VP6D from his patio overlooking Lake Michigan:

VP6D Team:

Good job on the expedition, looks like it was a lot of fun!
Here's a picture of my working conditions.

- FT817ND
- 5 watts
- MFJ-1899T

I suppose my real RST would be something like 229 or 339 but K3EL hears incredibly well and kindly gave me a 599. A couple minutes later it was all packed away on a shelf in our condo here, just in time to read the message on DXA saying I had made a QSO.
Neat system, thanks!

FT-8 & DXA

18. 10. 23

A slight glitch with software speaking to each other.

There is an issue with FT-8 & DXA meshing the QSOs as they are logged. There are no lost FT-8 QSO's that we can determine. We are successfully uploading ALL QSO's to our logserch application. Check for your QSO via our logsearch, be mindful of the last upload time that is clearly visible: www.vp6d.com/index.php/logsearch-oqrs
