10m 18 November 2012

I nearly got myself locked out of the WSPR map page today. I must have managed to save the settings to try to display spots for all bands for the last 24 jours, or something like that, because whenever I went to the page the web browser froze up while it tried to render the map and I couln't get back to the settings boxes to change it. I had to find out how to delete all cached files in Chrome before I could access it again.

10m WSPR spots @ G4ILO 18 November 2012
I lost quite a lot of time trying to sort that out. I also spent an hour or so seeing what I could work on 10m PSK31. I managed to QSO with several US stations including N7WET in Tucson, Arizona and KB5IAV in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

I worked two all time new countries as well. Fabio CU3HN in the Azores has one of those QSLs that never fail to bring a smile to my face.
Victor, HP1AVS in Panama I had heard before but not managed to work. So I was pleased to add his call to the log as well.
I love 10 metres!

10m has definitely been fantastic today. I've been WSPR on very rudimentary kit at 500mW TX, and have been everywhere.

For once our 28MHz results look similar!

Must try and work CU3HN :-)
