RICHARD MADE MANY DIFERENT CONTACTS OVER BRAZIL
MAURICIO BERALDO PY4MAB
W5KWQ/Richard on voice over Johannesburg at 16:40utc, 18 Oct 2008.
He switched from normal freq to another 'channel' for a phone patch via ZS6BTD (Gerald) to discuss issues he has been
having with the SSTV unit, batteries and Radio interface/interworking.
We had a severe weather at the time - lightning, wind, rain etc. Hear the crackles and pops!
It appears Richard had some trouble hearding the phone patch audio properly.
Maybe phone line issues due to the storm ?
Looks like he may need to swop the radio for the spare - currently he needs to use some velcro to secure the
mic interface between the sstv unit and the rig.
