Did a little ham therapy this morning at the park. Was totally alone. Not many contacts on 20m at 10 watts, but a few.
Hey @M0YNG Do you know if membership in the RSGB is open to Yanks?
Not sure why it occurred to me but...
Wrote up a thought or two on all the FT8 hate I’ve seen lately.
I finally got my IC-705 running digital modes wirelessly. I dig it!

I’ll say it again: the 705 has crushed it for so many reasons. The firmware update that made this work is more than just icing on the cake. It’s a full solution for portable digital operation.
Did a test run of digital modes using the IC-705 and Surface tablet. No wires between the rig and tablet. Flawless.
I hate using Windows, but this solution is simply too good to ignore.
