…trying IRLP…

Well, I messed around with IRLP yesterday. Thanks to WH6Q, I was able to connect to the Palmer Station node in Antarctica (node 8838). Didn’t get any response, but it was fun to figure it out. Later that night I connected to the Alaska Reflector (node 9070), but again didn’t get any activity.

I’m going camping this next weekend, hopefully with my FT-7800R setup as a portable. It will be a great time for my friends to see the stuff in action. They are mildly curious about my new hobby, but don’t seem to understand the why. Sometimes, in order to provide enlightenment, you have to show the “wow” before the “why”.
