First PSK QSOs

Encouraged by Wiesio SP3LOT I decided to try digital modes - PSK. After several test (mainly setting signal levels from computer - thanks Ryszard SP3UQQ) I managed to

contact a few stations in Europe. Equipement: FT847 with interface dedicated for this radio, about 20W PWR and Buddipole antenna on my balcony in unknown and undocumented configuration (supported with MFJ manual antenna tunner). It is very effective mode - 20W is enough to connect to Poland with my balcony antenna - when even 100W is not sufficient when use SSB. I will more often appear on these modes. There are some really nice to hear - try Olivia :)))
