1. VHF JT65
As you know by now, I have become a great fan of JT65 on HF. I want to start using the mode on VHF. In particular the JT6M mode for 50MHz looks interesting. Would it be viable with 100W and a vertical? Maybe! I have to try it. If not, no doubt a simple low dipole would work for meteor scatter.
The challenge is the interface with the FT847 which I have struggled with in the past. Looks like I have various options which I hope to pursue soon.
Need to improve the performance of the 70MHz receiver and probably up the power a bit. I have a plan …. Not too worried about tropo on the band but would like to be more competitive for Es and meteor scatter.
3. 1.8MHz JT65
I wonder what could be done on 160m from a ‘small garden’ using JT65?
4. 144MHz EME
I would love to try and work some EME. Probably my old 13el on a stepladder in the back garden then. Need that interface for the FT847!
5. 28MHz mobile
I’m planning to install the Anytone AT-5555 in the car now I have the more efficient 10m antenna.
Hope I can do at least some of these.
