you're welcome.
this is really just a stability test of the system since the software i am using "SDR Angel" still has some bugs in it.
however, the latest software release seems to have worked out roughly about 90% of those issues and bugs that were present.
the system is comprised of the following:
1) Hack-RF.
2) Yaesu FT-757GX2 linear amplifier module with low pass filter set at 7Mhz, current carrier power is 20 watts.
3) SDR Angel software to control/modulate the HRF.
4) Horizontal dipole about 30 feet above the terrain in the open.
apologies if the music isnt the type that you would like to hear but im "collecting" various tunes from various genres.

1804  Maybe back again?
Playing "She's Not a Devil," then gone, mid-song, at 1805.  Other than some local RFI, a "fair" signal in Wyomissing.

Oops; I should make my Windows smaller:  Back at 1808 with "Forget Him."  Still the buzz and still fair.

1818  Talk about a rough afternoon.  Technical difficulties galore!  Starting and stopping, buzzing, then alternating buzzing.
Gone again at 1818 in the middle of "Two Faces Have I."

yup.
its all testing as the software has lots of bugs that are still present despite the "update".
it would be wonderful if there was good windows based software to use for the HRF, "SDR Angel" is very buggy.
edit: 1924z - thanks for joining me on this journey of testing - im off the air for the remainder of the day :)
