MARCH 23 – With just over 3 full days of operating left, the 5V7EI team are discontinuing with Fox & Hound mode but will now use ‘Standard Frequencies’ on FT8 instead. ‘Fox & Hound’ worked very well for us but now, it’s time to maximise our QSOs and try work those guys who just don’t QSY to F&H frequencies. We are very aware of 80m SSB (75m) demands and will try to fulfill these, however, we are still experiencing lightning storms (severe at times) and even had to QRT for several hours last night. With 37,600 QSOs currently uploaded, the team are in good spirits and are determined to get you into their logs. [read more]
