Yuri, VE3DZ, operated P40T in CQWW Phone. He says, he only managed around 6550 Q’s with a total score a bit short of 11 M points. The noise was a killer (especially on 160 and 80), and it was a different noise. He only made a bit more than 200 Q’s on 80 and about 40 on 160… could easily add another 1000 Q’s under different circumstances. For more details, see Yuri’s detailed report on 3830.

Yuri found one of the two FT-1000D broken (no RF output) – tnx to Andy, AE6Y, for helping out with a spare radio. One of the MRF486 drivers seems to be broken. Hopefully the radio can be fixed later this month.
