27 June 2013 – A Sort of Social Meeting and How the ‘Professionals’ Operate DX

Using a Power Point presentation, I tried to explain some of the ways of operating split frequencies using the club’s rig.  Like many of the modern rigs, there is more than one way of doing things, but some rely on other settings, as well. I also explained why working split in a pile up is advantageous, and how the set up differs if you are the DX station or the person calling the DX. A note was made of the logger we will be using for G100RSGB and how the RSGB will deal with all the QSL chores so long as we submit our logs in .adif format. Later, the rig was set up and members had a chance to try out the settings for themselves.
