I just got on psk31 and enjoy it made about a dozen contacts so far  Grin...It was very easy even for a computer dummy like me to connect the computer to the rig and get on the air ...The only problems so far are the frequencies used for psk31 the frequencies  for 80 mtr and 40 mtr  psk are 3.58 and 7.035  at least that is what I found listed on the internet for these bands ...These are both popular cw frequencies I have yet to copy ANY Psk31 transmissions on 40 or 80 meters ..Are there other frequencies being used for PSK31 ? I would think farther up the band would be better for 40 and 80 ... Thanks guys  BOB DE W9RAS

And if you are lucky 28.120 and 24.920. The most used frequency is 14.070, the others would be excellent if that big useless yellow thing 93 million miles away started acting like the Sun instead of the Moon.

Hi OM!

Welcome to PSK-31, isn't it fun, a great mode for
ragchews?

Hey, next time you are in a QSO, try turning down
your power output and see how low you can go and
still have the other guy maintain good copy. You
may be surprised. It's a terrific QRP mode. There's something
really magical about chatting with someone thousands of miles
away when transmitting 5 watts or less.

You may have already learned this, but you'll put out
the best quality signal if you run your radio with the RF Power
setting all the way up, and use the Audio Drive to control the power out.
Keep an eye on the AGC meter.

Hope to see you on my screen!
