Sometimes you need to move your QSO
After starting our QSO the ARRL QST program started right on top of us causing QRM that forced us to move to another frequency
My old Ten-Tec Century/21 is a lot of fun to use and its direct conversion receiver makes CW sound beautiful. But the frequency dial is fairly imprecise so when I asked the station to QSY up 1kHz finding him again was a bit of a challenge. When I heard him I had to zero-beat him again to make sure I was on the correct side of the direct conversion receivers passband.
Enjoy the QSO and the QRM dodging...
Shooting this video
This video was a bit harder to shoot than what I normally do. I usually place my camera to one side but I wanted to use my fisheye lens and shoot the QSO from above.
While shooting I was straddling the tripod with the camera right in front of my face so I was reaching around the tripod to use my keys and get to my keyboard for logging. It was a bit awkward, and in the video you'll see me bump the VFO while trying to operate the radio because I couldn't really see what I was doing. It's always fun to add a level of difficulty while making these videos.
That's all for now...
So lower your power and raise your expectations
