Francesco good evening all true what you say & I use MAP65 with only
horizontal polarization. We all use the internet anyway when we thank the
station for a completed QSO or when we indicate where we are calling CQ .So
why not ask the station their frequency??
I am looking forward to see MAP65 upgraded as well but it is not a do or die
situation dear friend.

Hello Serge. We are old friends. We worked on cw and JT65 eme many times.
Each time for me is a pleasure to work you and the others guys and I know
that the same is for you.

I disagree with you regarding the possibility to work on eme without MAP65
upgrades and with the help of the loggers. The loggers are welcome if used
in the right way.

I don’t like to believe that I must come back to 20 years ago for use Q65.
In that case I prefer to stay on JT65 and like me dozen of stations. Imagine
those stations that have invested money on dual polarity

and are using Linrad with the adaptive option (thanks Leif) and MAP65
(thanks Joe). I use Linrad and MAP65 by many years although I have only an H
linear system on 2 m.

I’ll not operate using loggers instead MAP65. I’ll not become a slave of
internet for my eme activity.

So Serge this is my opinion and I guess that K1JT has done a good job
sending a questionary on Moonnet with the target to understand how many
stations are using MAP65.

At least, to be honest, until now seems to me that although Q65 shall be the
future, there are not many stations that are doing traffic with this new
mode. I’m sure that a new upgrade of

MAP65  could improve the use of Q65  maintaining the advantage to hear wide
band and Linrad adaptive mode.

Excuse me for my bad English and I pray that there are not misunderstanding.

I run MAP65 & the IQ+ &  appreciate the decoding which takes place. As an
old CW EME guy on 144 MHz where we used to scan from 144 to 144100 looking
for someone to work was fun & I miss those days quite frankly.

So yes MAP65 is very helpful but not truly essential to enjoy EME

You can always use the reflector to see where people are calling CQ or you
can announce where you are calling. It should also work for Q65 A. If CQ
live could be updated that would be  helpful as well .

Some people are making demands which often are border line outrages . Q65A
already does the QSO for you your antennas are computer tracked so as an
operator the only thing you have to do is watch your computer screen

& your biggest job is to look for someone who is calling CQ & log your QSO
if it is completed. What else do you need???????

My thoughts for the day
