Re: RE: AO-51 QRP mode

Hi Jamie,


Glad to hear you gave it a go!  I had a ball, making contacts from the warm, cozy shack running 5 watts into a discone antenna at 20'!  Indeed it was fun.  I was impressed by the fellow running 50 mW and sounding so great (I forget the call...)




For AO-51, I always check the link above to verify the uplink freq., downlink freq, packet baud, and PL tone requirements---it was using 145.880 on uplink last night!!

QRP Experimenters Wednesday, note uplink frequency, NO PL Tone

Please follow the QRP requirements listed below

FM Repeater, V/U

Uplink: 145.880 mhz FM, NO PL Tone required

Downlink 435.300 mhz FM


73 and hope to catch you a bird soon,


Mark N8MH
