After successfully getting WSJT-X 1.3 up and running last night, I decided to throw out a quick CQ on JT65. Even though my waterfall was showing some interference I still managed to pick up a contact way out over on the West Coast of America some 16,900 kms away!
Other than being my longest QSO to date, what really surprised me was:
- The fact the QSO was achieved with such high level of interference with the signal barely visible on the waterfall (see below); and
- That this was with JT65, so imagine what could be achieved with JT9 – shame the majority of activity of the two is JT65!
Looking forward to doing more with WSJT-X!!
