WSPR and FT8

I’ve just started experimenting with digital models again on ham radio. Finally, around 11pm, got across the Atlantic on WSPR (technically, MEPT_JT; Manned Experimental Propagation Transmission plus its creator Joe Taylor’s initials) with ~3W and a loop antenna inside a north London flat.

Shortly after, made it across with FT8

… but no transatlantic QSO in this flat yet.

I’m using a Yaesu FT-818, WonderWand Wonder Loop 750, and a SignaLink USB interface to connect the 818 to my laptop running WSJT-X.
