MMSSTV seems to fail to decode the FSKID of certain callsigns, specifically my callsign, which is G4IJE. There may be others - I think there must be others. Has anyone noticed a consistent failure to decode certain callsigns? I have a local link with two PCs both running MMSSTV 1.13A and connected via an audio link. Every callsign I set - apart from G4IJE - decodes perfectly every time. Levels have been carefully set and pictures are perfect closed-circuit quality.
Does anyone have a two PC setup where they can test my findings? I know nothing can be done to fix the bug, but I just want someone to confirm I am not going mad! By the way, any small change to my callsign - adding a / or a . at the end for example, and the FSKID decodes perfectly.
To check the receive, just remove the mic (no need to transmit by mistake!), string a wire between two trees (or other supports) and connect it to the center pin of the antenna jack. You should be able to hear things with this simple setup. 20 meters and lower during the night, 40 meters and higher during the day. 73s.
It's not a big deal to wait for Ducie. I'm sure it will happen as it's not a place where access is extremely difficult. Maybe, just maybe, a small team will decide to take a trip on a light budget. Kinda like what Dom is doing with his T31T operation. What that being said I still think there's something wrong with the most-wanted data on Ducie in Clublog.
Pitcairn is on 12m CW with a very nice signal. I'm now done with them on the higher bands. Just need them on 40m-160m.
Speaking of small dxpedition teams, I haven't seen much action from George and Tomi except George's foray to K1N.
anyone from 9-land with modest antennas been able to work them on 10,12, 15 or 17 meters? my antenna is not much but I generally can hear stations at that distance fairly well and i have yet to hear them on these bands...
You have a local noise source... and will have to find it in order to fix it. Yes, there can be more than one. Get the radio on a battery and start operating breakers in the house. Hopefully it will be there. Good luck with the project! 73s.
