Signal Report NBEMS Testing

"Jeff Moore" <tnetcenter@...>

Just wanted to give you guys a signal report.
I was able to hear KE3Y pretty good most of time here in Central Oregon.  N4UM OTOH was mostly unreadable, although I did manage to get at least 2 of his beacons on MFSK.
Band conditions here were not very good, with a lot of severe fading, and it looks as though you two had problems as well.
At one point after you were on PSK63 another signal (I'm not sure what it was but it was very wideband) clobbered both you.  Shortly after that you switched to MFSK and I was able to copy  some of that.
I would've tried to join in, but I'm not yet transmit capable.  Soon!

P.S. you're still at as I write this!

I saw you on air Monday but I was using another program. Domino.

I will be there tonight (Tuesday) at 0100Z. MFSK16.

For the rest of you, I WILL ALSO BEACON TODAY AT NOON CST (1800z). Same
details, MFSK16. After establishing contact, I will ask if you want to
go to PSK125, the fastest mode available in my NBEMS software, for the
file transfer.

Beaconing with a slow mode gives enough time to tune in. Beaconing with
PSK125 doesn't give time to tune in the signal, especially if you beacon
further apart than 15 seconds. That's my experience. Looking forward to
copying someone. I will have a 4KByte com file, TED.COM, ready to
transmit for the test.
