    Or that he hangs out with Paul Simon down by the schoolyard. Paul probably has a van painted up with “Free Candy”... LOL.

    Probably.

    But Paul can count on the radical priest to get him released.

    I can’t believe my good fortune. I got lucky today and worked Japan on 20m RTTY.

    For you guys that still use QSL cards do you do them yourselves or use a bureau ?

    Yeah, 20 meters was pretty open today. At one point I was listening to both sides of a QSOs between a ham in Japan and another in Germany.

    The guy I talked to in Japan made a contact with a station in Everett Washington after me and I was able to copy both. It was a fun day.

    I’ve always done QSLs direct but it gets expensive.

    As far as working Japan goes, there’s so many Japanese hams it’s always a famine or feast. Once a band opens to Japan, you’ll usually fill three pages of logs with JAs. Haha.

    Love it for confirmation. Sad it kinda ruins getting nifty postcards from all over the world. Best thing that ever happened to contesting is electronic logs, though. I don’t need cards for contests. That gets horribly expensive and annoying fast.

    To quote a friend, "It depends".

    No kidding. There are times when working JAs is like shooting fish in a barrel.

    I use it. Works great. But I don't complain about paper, either.

    Used to work with a guy that used the HF radios on the DC-10s at work to chat. On the gate on graveyard shift.

    There is a program for HRD called Pocket RX-TX. It works local or remote. There is also an Echolink conference called Aerolink that I monitor a lot. Anyone with echolink check it out.
