Hello,

I am far behind on my emails/group messages, so I just read this one.
I have attempted some Opera in the past without luck...I would like to try it again!

Was this QSO Party a one time event or is it a regular meeting? Should I will give it try today on the mentioned frequencies?
One more question..the only software I know of is Opera 1.x (I will update to 1.5.0 tonight). Is this one OK?

73,Nick

Nick,


Well  there  is  ongoing  activity on various bands , check the  psk-reporter for  activity , 7038 is  providing  good  VK<>EU and  VK<>USA  at the  moment , quite a  few  US stations  where  on that  night ,


Latest is  1-5-0 , some  changes made to the  qrg's  as  other  modes had  started to over  lap ,

Hi Nick YouTube can download the latest browser here: www.opera.com Opera (tm) is a great browser made in Norway. One of the best in the world. 73 La5vna s

Ah , a funny  haha  that  was  


The  name  'Opera'  is not  registered for the  browser  , the registered  trade  mark  is the  'logo' and  like  other  Opera's  , it  uses the  word as a pseudonym

7038 .......  10,000 K  and  above , 


Just a  few  watts  , that's  all  it  needs , even works upside  down  , Down Under that  is  ... 


''HI guys, thanks for getting on 40M... it still boggles me how well this works, for example K4RKM heard me with 2 Watts from my end and KL7L heard me with just 1 Watt''.
