    Ha!!! So many digital modes I can't remember them all. Three November Sweepstakes section wins. 425 grids on 6m, 101 on 2m, including via EME. 287 DXCCs, WAS 160-6. Weeks (maybe months) of continuous uptime. Love the ability to watch multiple bands. CW Skimmer with I/Q is amazing. FDX makes satellites easy. Smartlink remote operation allowed more than one ATNO from my desk at work. Fewer boxes on the desk adds years to my marriage, and probably my life. 

    Still having more fun in ham radio than ever!

    I can connect my Maestro to my 6700 so far. If I ever get port forwarding working I will be able to play ham radio at Starbucks. You’re an inspiration! Do you have YouTubes of how you set up those different modes? 73
