Hello everyone!!

Happy New year!!!

I wish all you a Great 2019

Since January 1st I'm operating on FT8 mode from Porto Alegre, Brazil with my PY3ZZZ callsign
If you see me around, your welcome to say hi, instead of "73".... just say Flex!! :)

in 48 hours I have made 360 QSO (169 confirmed ) and 60 countries....

Remember my call PY3ZZZ.

Ok my question, Im still using Kenwood Ts-480 in WSJT-X and JTDX as setup for my flex 6600,
I wonder if anyone of you have chosen Flex6XXX for setting up, software has been upgrading many times since I used first time

Any experience to share?

Best Regards!!

and again Great Year 2019

George, PY3ZZZ.....and of course YV5WZ

    Hey George!  I was running my 6600 at 80w into a G5RV Jr. just above the roof.  I'm stuck on a small city lot here in Austin, so am constrained antenna-wise.  We must have had a good transequatorial path open at the time.  Tnx for the Q!
