TI Update — Thursday Night

Cable and lightSo…off to bed to get a good nights sleep before the contest tomorrow night.

Here’s what we did today:

  • Set up the laptops
  • Set up the radios and interface devices
  • Set up the amplifiers
  • Modified the 80-meter dipole for CW off from SSB
  • Tested the set up on 15, 17, 20, 30, 40, and 80 meters. Working fine.

Most frustrating thing for the day:

Calling CQ on 80 meters for a half hour on both RTTY and CW and only working 4 stations on CW (EU and NA).

A good day. We’re ready to go. We’ll be on the air in the morning as well. The rest of our group arrived today and they are a little tired. Sleep is a good thing.

73 until tomorrow…
