Open to USA on 17m R T T Y ...!!!


Over 30 USA stations mostly from area 7 on my log tonight... Also many north Europeans comes 5-9++
That makes the difference is the variable filters  of Icom IC-7000 on FSK mode....
The last two weeks Im testing daily the behavior of IC-7000 on digital modes mostly on RTTY (FSK)
This radio makes me happy....

R T T Y pure FSK transmission with IC-7000 ....


   
After many years I decide to make at last FSK transmission against my obsession of AFSK. So easily found on Internet good ideas for FSK keying....






Put them all in a  connector is not big deal....  hi hi





Here is my screen.... Thats make me exciting was the usage of filters on my IC-7000.... Look how tight is the RX bandwith up-right on screen...






And here is the screen of IC-7000...  Waterfall display downright is cool...    Overheat of rig after 2 hour on-air make me  ...angry...!!!







FINAL VIEW.....
