July 20, 2017: I discovered FT8 tonight.  Fun new version of JT65.  Very fast. Whoosh.

Thank you for the WSJT contact, JT65, JT9, and now FT8.   I love WSJT and operate those modes almost exclusively these days. 


Working conditions are located in Strasburg, Colorado and currently consist of a 3 element yagi on 60 ft tower for 20 meters.  Other bands use a 56' vertical with four radials consisting of welded-wire-fencing laid on the ground, fed by a SGC SG-230 automatic tuner. The transceiver is a Kenwood TS-480.  I use this antenna for 160  through 10 meters.  Six meters is done on a dipole at 39 feet up.  Full story at  w0qlremotebase.wordpress.com

Hope to work you soon.
