« on: May 15, 2022, 0116 UTC »
0115 UTC The ute is overwhelming on 6942 USB, but I have weak audio using LSB

Thanks for trying but only fragments came through this evening. Between the ute and the storm static, it's a no go.  :(


I believe 6942 is possibly the worst frequency to use in the 43 meter band.
Link-11 (Also known as ALLIGATOR, STANAG 5511, TADIL-A, MIL-STD-6011, and MIL-STD-188-203-1A) is a Tactical Data Link standard (formerly known as Tactical Digital Information Link (TADIL) used by NATO and the US Military for Maritime Tactical Data Exchange.
