It had been discussed for long enough. It was finally time. Months had passed and still it hadn't happened. Finally, EI2KC was going digital!
In the beginning, God created SSB. And it was good.
Then he created CW. And that was exceedingly good.
On the third day God created PSK31, RTTY and other digital modes.
And when EI2KC looked on these wonderful creations, and beheld them, and enjoyed them, he was exceedingly happy.
Indeed such was his delight that he worked 32 digital contacts in the first day and a half.
On PSK and RTTY I worked many European stations but also North America and Canada and even Puerto Rico, all on 50 watts. The new Signalink USB is working a treat! It's a great way of operating. I can mute the sound with headphones so that the noise is not there constantly. The great thing about digi is that it's all visual - you read everything on the screen. And it's not too difficult to operate either. I got the hang of it fairly quickly.
I will keep you posted as to how I get on.
