630M activity? Sounds like it.
« on: January 02, 2021, 0011 UTC »
At 23:30UTC, hearing what sounds like a very slow like FT-8, FT-4, activity on 475.500kHz. About an S3 carrier level my way. Can anyone else hear, decode, and ID that? If I'm not mistaken, 630M in the USA is limited to 5W PEP, so interesting to hear where that QRP is coming from.
Proving and convincing that someone is correct could be seen as a notable achievement. However, proving, and trying to convince, that someone is wrong can bastardize you for life.

Haven't tried to decode any of the FT modes but I was using one channel of my KiwiSDR to decode WSPR and send the spots online for a while. There are a lot of hams in the northeast working 630m on lots of modes and trying to communicate all the way to the west coast. Interesting stuff.
