Congrats to those who contacted W9L via relay station KI0CW on Veterans Day. W9L was up and running but reception was severely limited at our downtown Indianapolis location. We were calling for stations running about 450 watts with a 1.3:1 SWR but with little to no copy – except for Bill in S.D. We are running a full system analysis to identify any actions that might be necessary. Apologies to those who tried to reach us. We did, however, have a number of calls on IRLP.
FYI, we did QSY from 14.277 to 14.272 MHz after one station contacted KI0CW to let him know that the frequency was being used in the Phillipines for emcomm operations.
President Marty, W9WMJ will have details in his next email report.
