Hi all, I came across a post on Amateur Radio Western Australia vk6.net group, about a NBN filter for issues when using FT8 on 40m or 80m band and your router drops out, well mine drops out on 80m band so I’m going to build on my self and give it a go, this is written by VK3FS and his page can be viewed here 40m VDSL filter for your NBN, if your page doesn’t load you can download the pdf from here.
Took me a while to nut it out, come’s down to what type of rig your using and what software you want to use
I run a IC-7300 with MMSSTV and EasyPal, EasyPal took a bit to nut out but I got there in the end with the help from guys that run the afternoons SSTV on 7.214 LSB, also 7.171 LSB is used along with another 28.680 USB
Take a look here https://wasstv.net/wasstv.net/index.html good place to start, hope it helps.
Install your Icom – 7300 drivers , download USB drivers
These settings work for me, I had a little help from the guy’s that are on 7.214
EasyPal setting up and help, visit here
cheers for now VK6KFK
Its been a while, been busy with work and I spend a day on the weekend working on the Tower and the Rotator Cage, Now I’m up too adding the steel beam to the truss of the shed for the Winch setup. Here are some new photo’s of the Rotator Cage. A big thank you to Jim Curnow of Narrogin, he welded the bars to the Galv Tube at the top of the Rotator cage.
I’ve been at this for month’s, a little bit each weekend, My next stage done, the rotator shaft cage, its about 2m in lenght should be enough for the rotator and center pole, then antenna on top TE-23 Yagi for 10m and 15m, this sit’s on top of the 4.5m tower, so all toll about 7.m, I may add a 40m dipole as well later down the track, get the tower up first.. cheers and 73’s
