More Practice with JT-65

Continued to play around with JT-65 today on various bands and times. During the day ran at 5W on 20m and made some good domestic contacts. After dark I started to switch to 40m and 80m and have been generally pleased with the contacts on these bands.

20m was still showing activity after dark and with higher power my signals were copied in Antarctica and I was able to complete a QSO with Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean!

PSKreporter.info is a really useful tool for JT-65. It is incredibly helpful (not to mention encouraging) to see that your signals are being received even if it does not result in a QSO.

This mode looks very promising for DX with my setup and I am looking forward to trying JT9 now as well.
