Rilli-kissa tietää

Niille, jotka epäilevät meteorologien ennusteiden paikkaansapitävyyttä, kannattaa tutustua myös Rilli-kissan ennusteisiin. Osumatarkkuus on ollut paikoin jopa parempi kuin muilla "tietäjillä".

10 meters band is active

10 meters band has offered good propagation conditions lately. During JARTS RTTY -contest I made over 90 % of my QSOs just on that 10 meters band.
This week I have caused some QRP QRM on the same band, and the results have been good. Just 1 W and you can make nice QSOs on JT65, PSK31 and ROS -modes. Enjoy low powering and try those modes if any.

Well, years ago I purchased a registration key for RCKRtty v.2 software. I ran many contests with that software. I works FB even today although I have not upgraded it to version v.3.
Last week I decited to find something new for the JARTS contest. I found RCKLog -software (freeware!!) by DL4RCK.
That was a good choice, because I could take the software into action in a few minutes. Right - no need for reading the manual; just install the programme and enjoy hi...
After installation I rebooded computer, wrote my personal infos (call, name etc), select a new logfile for Jarts and activated the contest section with JARTS rules and F-keys. So, easy.
MMTTY -engine works very fine on rtty - no need for special modems or other. During the contest hours I had not any problems with the software. Even the "hard" paper work was very easy after the contest.
Thank you for the nice contest software (freeware), DL4RCK.

JARTS - RTTY activity weekend 2011

Hi, nice "radio weekend" finally behind. Conditions on shortwaves sounded very good, so I concentrated to make QSOs mainly on 28 MHz band. There were lot of activity (stations) from yearly morning till late night. Nice contacts around the world were made. When checking my log list, I discovered that there were only few stations from North- or South-America. Maybe the openings to that direction was not so good. Japanese stations were very loud and active all time.
Well, next year again - condx is improving all the time!
