Had the rig tuned to 30M and there was a big pileup progressing so I decided to tune in. FT4JA on Jaun de Novo good copy so I decided to join in the fun. No DQRM but some on freq callers and some up up overall nice copy. It was just before their sunrise
And the sigs were thus:
peaking -90 dBm
with an average band noise of -114 dBm
Pretty big pileup though
He was slowly moving up and down the pile, moving on after each contact, so tailending wasn't the key. I just moved a little higher or lower after the last QSO looking for a clear spot and sent my call twice, once for him to hear me and another for him to copy me. He would tend to move a couple hundred hz to a khz or more, so I had to try and get into his mind a little. After a while I managed to attract his attention and we were in each other's logs
Un-narrated video of FT4JA Maybe 80M or 160M?
Many tnx Pat
