G'day Terry and all,
I can see VK3MY all the time, its a really good signal here. Also a
handful of VK2s and VK4s, even some vk3 mobiles!
I was having trouble with dial frequency but you've shone a light on
it... I didn't realise that even tho all 300bd TNCs had a 200Hz split,
not all used the same tone pair! I'm using a AGWPE/soundcard TNC and the
dial frequency is 300Hz out! Dont know if its the FT107 calibration or
the tone pair now!
I do have trouble pinging most... don't know if I'm not getting out or
they don't respond to pings.
Terry, a little off topic, did you get all your crop in? Most round here
got all but their seed in before the thunderstorms came. There's a fair
bit of shot and sprung grain around!!!
