IC-7600 – And my first DX contact is…

I finally got the audio setup on the new rig for some preliminary tests on the air. I used a dummy load to first set the audio level such that my ALC was close to, but not exceeding 50%. Then, I went into the compression setting and tweaked that such that the meter deflected between 10 and 20 dB.

There’s a contest on today so I thought – what the heck, call out to a DX station. I made contact with SG8X in Sweden, about 4,000 miles from here. Not bad. Of course, there was no time to ask for an audio check.

  1. Good morning Rick, very nice contact with the new rig and it's a sweet feeling to flip the switch on a new radio and see it doing it's job!
    Enjoy the new radio
