This more a tweet than a blog - but its worth recording none the less.
Tonight I couldn't raise anybody on CW through the QsoNet system, despite sending out beautifully automated CQs courtesy of a new (to me) iPhone app called Text2Morse (it does exactly what it says on the can).
So, I spun the tuning knob up to the phone section of the 20m band and heard wa3cjl calling CQ.
I answered, and was treated to a wonderful conversation with Robert "Pip" Thomas in Kulpmont, Pa. We were joined by fellow FISTS member, Clive, g4ppk, before I had to QRT to make a sked with the xyl on Skype.
Thanks Pip and Clive for a great qso - I may even have to change my opinion of phone modes!
