I'm still trying to get anyone get back to me on JT-65HF and PSK31 on the iPad with my Ft-817nd QRP rig. There's so darn many digital modes, it's a real challenge to understand what they are, much less get proficient with them. Good luck learning a new mode.

Gee, I literally work the world with 5 watts PSK 31.

you might want to run PSK REPORTER and see if you have a good signal and low IMD.

PSK Reporter will give you the ability to monitor your station for listening and sending signal to let you see how far you transmit almost instantly






if you use Ham Radio Deluxe, then you already have the software

Holy crap! I turned down my Yaesu FT-450D to 5 watts and shot off a CQ TEST. Freaking amazing how my signal is getting out with PSK31. Longest report...

From FR5HA in Reunion Island
Loc LG78QQ by KD8PFB
Distance: 9553 miles bearing 74
Frequency: 14.070 MHz (20m), PSK31

That was off my 66' New Carolina Windom at 28' flat top. I can hardly wait to get my rotor replaced for the 10-15-20m beam and play with that.

Thanks for the help. I had 30 reports in 6 countries on 5w. I'm Pumped!!

Yes, I'm running HRD, as well as Fldigi.
