He probably didn't need any antenna at 1/4 mile (400
snip interesting detection story
Stephen Thomas Cole, the PP, just after gaining his UK
Full licence by 'acing' all three exams, appeared on a UK
Amateur group asking which sideband he should use on 40m.
That's all you need to know about him and and his ability
That sounds interesting - can you provide a link to that
No. For some reason it's been deleted.
Then we only have your word that it ever exsisted. I choose
not to believe a word of it.
'It's been deleted' means it did exsist. You can't delete was

We only have your word for any of that. I choose not to believe

What STC actually asked was which sideband he should use for RTTY
Which is, of course, an interesting question as it's not something
that was covered in any exam, current or previous.
My $0.02 worth is that it doesn't matter, since an RTTY operator
will know that he needs to invert the received tones if he sees a
string of "46464646" instead of "RYRYRYRY"
Here's what was asked, and it wasn't posted no archive, or deleted,
or any of the other weak bull**** that Burt has bean spraying around:
"Was pottering at my radio last night, heard the scream of data
being sent and was triggered to revisit a long parked project;
getting going on RTTY!
Here's the hardware I'm using:
Yaesu FT757-GXii Serial/USB cable interface thing PowerMac G4 running
I've got everything hooked up, have CocoaModem configured and
displaying a waterfall but when set to RTTY mode it's just decoding
Other than a couple of short spells at club days, this is my first
go at this and I have no idea what I'm doing... Any tips?"
Good old Burt.
For the record all the data modes including RTTY use upper sideband
all the way up from 136KHz . CW A1A is also upper sideband but there
can be advantages to be had by swapping to LSB to avoid
interference. F1A beacons seem to be a law unto themselves. You can
get quite good at reading inverted morse.
Amateur RTTY uses inverted tones and a different narrower shift
compared with commercial RTTY.
I don't know why your getting onto Steve about this as none of it is
the radio amateur courses or even online anywhere, unless some smarty
pants comes along and tells me it is. Ok it's in here for WSJT
It was Burt who was doing the 'getting onto' and when it wasn't going
well for him he introduced a new plotline about mysterious disappearing
posts and the character defects that could be at the root of the
I joined it to point out that the posts are still there and that Burt is
a liar and a ****ing idiot.
But Burt is an excellent troller.
Of course none of us would **** on Burt if he were on fire. Apart from
Dicky 'Rimjob' Brown. But that's because he's trying to hide the fact he
lied about his licence level.
You say "none of us" - there are only three of you! Most group users
don't particularly love Reay and his acolytes much more than Spike, I
