JT9 QSO 40m

This morning I worked WB2SXY on 40 meter (7078 KHz USB) with JT9. 25 watts and my end fed antenna. After this qso I switched to 30 meters, and had a nice qso with EI7JK Dave from Kerry with CW (I was using 15 watts)

    Hi Paul
    Try reducing your power on JT9. I work the world with 5 to 10 watts maximum to an 80 Meter horizontal loop. Last night at 23:32 I worked Ian, 3B8IK in Mauritius with that QRP setup. It’s amazing what you can do on JT9 at QRP levels and a modest antenna. Great fun.

    Hi Marc, yes, you are right. Normally I work 5 watts with JT9. Accidentally my rig was still on 25 watts (for PSK31) Thanks, 73 Paul
