RSGB 80m CC DATA April 2021

It was a nice evening and I decide to go to my local hill to give a go to my new 80m full size dipole using a choke balun optimised for 80m, made with (love and .. ) 2x 240-52 ferrite cores.

The top at 12m with the ends at 5m above the field.

Late start due to my laptop, I lost more than 20 minutes rebooting the laptop because FLDIGI scope kept to get stucked.

I used a Parallels Windows10 virtual machine running FLDIGI only.

No integration with N1MM or cluster / bandmap this time.

I managed to run a frequency both on RTTY and PSK63 bagging 50 QSOs.

9 countries worked in 90 minutes.

Italy, England, Scotland, Wales,  France, Germany Netherlands, Belgium, Czech Republic, Austria.

There are few tools I use to generate QSOs map after the contest.

80mm CC DATA required to upload a Cabrillo file, to generate the MAP of QSO from Cabrillo file I used  Qso Map Generator on Adventure Radio website.
