These compressed MP3 sound files have been recorded at VE6WZ directly from the FT-1000d or IC-756ProII to the sound board on the PC. 

File names: Call, Band, YR/MO/DD.  LP= Long path (usually my morning) SP= Short Path (usually my evening)

Click the file and your sound player should be able to play them.

If possible use headphones to improve the copy....these recordings are mostly of difficult, lowband QSO's which are often just at the edge of readability.....some signals are very light, but  mostly all Q-5.....afterall...nobody works 80 or 160 without they?

50kB CW How does the beverage compare to the shunt-fed tower on RX ??  Beverage/ TX antenna RX test.  In this file I switch from:  Beverage-TX-Beverage-TX-Beverage during his can hear the switch by the gap and amplitude of the signal.




157 Kb CW Listen to the very deep QSB on Johns signal.  This is an example of the common severe QSB that happens on TB...I listened to John for about 30min as he called CQ and QSO'd others...his signal would only "pop" out of the noise about every 5 minutes...most of the time there was no copy...his QSB peaks lasted only about 60 seconds or so...the exchanges needed to be quick !!!  This file has been edited...I cut out most of my calling.






  CW Marko made this recording of my CQ.  I had NO copy on any EU this evening, but Marko with his fantastic RX could copy me very well.  This make me think I need to move out of the city for better RX !!!!


1500 kb CW A very long file of a JA run on 160. Maybe some of JA will want to listen to the signals in VE6
