Re: Question on Operating RS-12/First QSO!

Hi everyone,

I'd like to thank the following for helping me out with working RS-12 in
Mode A:
John K6YK, Rick K0SU, Tony Langdon, Stan WA1ECF, Laura VE7LDH, Scott NX7U,
Don KC4YRT and Mike W1BFN.

I worked my first QSO on RS-12 in Mode A this afternoon.  AD1B answered my
CQ and I was astatic.  I worked Tom AD1B in MA at 2254 UTC.  I was running
50 watts from an FT-847 into a small Cushcraft AR-270 vertical on the uplink
and a 10 Meter inverted-v on the downlink.

I tried to work another station but could not keep up with him.

Thanks again for the help and this has certaintly introduced another phase
to my hobby, or obsession.
