Worked the CQ SSB WPX Contest a couple hours. Mostly trolling for new or interesting DX.
The N3FJP and PowerSDR software combination works fine.
I did have two anomalies I will be working to see if I can reproduce:
- After an hour of so of idle PowerSDR seemed to attenuate its Audio Out. Stopping PowerSDR and restarting it cured this issue.
- Twice in QSO PowerSDR seemed to jump to another Frequency. Not certain if it wasn’t just me, possibly pushing one of the extra mouse buttons in error.
Both bear watching and will get reported if I can reproduce them.
Only made 100 some contacts, so hardly an contestor’s effort, as I had other things on.
