Today I made a small test with Gerard, PA0BAT(JO31FX, 406km), to see how the A/C funtion in tucnak was working. Today no tropo, only airscatter signals,

Here a picture from the test, looks very promising (click on the picture):

Earlier in the evening Reinhold(DL6NAA), were out testing his portable 10GHz, for the comming JO34-Expedtion. He were in JO50WD (551KM), and heard my signal via tr on his small system.

May 24 , we had some nice clouds over JO42. Started working DL6NAA(as usual), he was only 52s, but a little bit later we adjusted to another scatter point and it was 59S. later on a couple other stations were worked. Not many active so only worked 5 stations, was heard(599) by DK5YA, but no qso this time.

Qso with DL0GTH & OK2A where made by help of airscatter.
