Last weekend I received via email a message about a new digital mode, ROS. Today I read the manual and installed the software.
Before I knew there rolled several callsigns on my screen. Then I tried to make a QSO. Within a short time I had 2 QSO's made through this new mode, ROS. The first with OH5B in Lappeenranta (KP41CB) and then YT2RA in Belgrade (KN04FT).
During the qso’s using my FT950 (10 watts) and the magnetic loop in the house.
From a 1 baud transmission with my email address, I received a automatic report from HA8ZI.
For more information about this new digital mode visite: http://www.southgatearc.org/news/february2010/ros.htm and: http://rosmodem.wordpress.com/
The only thing is that my SignaLink modem not switch fast between rx and tx. Maybe this is resolved in the next update of the ROS software.
