Had decided to work K5D on SSB phone as a first concentration.
Very pleased how my simple station and specially the Flex-5000A have worked for this easy Caribbean-Wisconsin shot.
Made six attempts, usually with now more than 3 or 4 calls in the pileup (I try to “play well” with others calling).
So far my K5D Desecheo Contacts are:
I’ll keep listening for the 12m, 10m and 6m window, but those may be tough.
Expect I’ll set up my rig to run RTTY and see if I can fill in those K5D contacts this weekend.
