20m here I come!

The WIA sent me a very welcome letter today.  As of today, I now have a Standard amateur radio license which entitles me to…

  • Power: 100W PEP for SSB and CW (I’ll have to check for FM)
  • Bands: 80m, 40m, 20m*, 15m, 10m, 6m*, 2m, 70cm, 23cm (* new bands)
  • Digital Modes! (timely too … we’re studying various digital modes at university)

If you wish to catch up… the new callsign is VK4MSL.  And yes, it’s kinda hard now to not say FSJL when you’ve been so used to saying it the last few months. 😉

I’ve got some ideas that I’d like to try with digital modes, and also at some point I’d like to do some SSTV too… Priority at this time still is with my university studies, but I’ll be hitting up 20m and doing a bit of digital work in the coming months.
