I have the Pi all setup now and its making RF. Next i need to see what I have around here in the way of amplification to get a bit more chooch for my chaach.
The signal is actually pretty clean, the noise you see is from the scope, not the Pi. Crap scope and overly sensitive to noise when its down on the lower power settings.
As you can see by the WSJT waterfall, 15m was going bonkers. Its great to see so much action on there.
The band was open all day and in the evening time, opened into the EU. Cant say I did all that well but I managed to make one contact into the EU and it is my first contact for the new solar cycle, it was with a station in Poland. You can see on the map i was not really being heard all that much in the EU. Probably not quite the sunspot numbers I need for my simple vertical antenna to be reliable enough. But seeing its still only early doors on the new cycle, things are looking promising. I did also spend 15m calling cq on CW, self spotted on the cluster and all and nothing. It was worth a shot.
