NERDS News: a FB 3G CW QSO

*** New England Radio Discussion Society News ***

Here's a new one I'm sure a lot of you NERDS folk (and PCARC members) may enjoy.

I just signed off with one of my pals, OZ4UN, Paul in Fredensborg, Denmark. We were chatting on CW for about a half hour, on the 12 meter band, which was open nicely into Europe this morning, despite the solar disturbances of the last two days.

In any case, Paul told me he was sending at 26 wpm, using an iPhone app on his local 3G cellular network. Wow. His rig, an Elecraft K3, was in his shack some distance away. It was connected to his Windows PC. Paul gave me a 589 report through his iPhone.

OZ4UN was using an iPhone app written and supported by KS7D, Mike.

When we signed off, Paul mentioned he was going to place his "shack" back into his pocket!

We both commented on what a wonderful and amazing world we live in. Now, if we could only learn not to make war .....

Have a great weekend.
