Many stations tried to contact ZF2EM today but the conditions were highly Non-Reciprocal so many were left "frustrated". Many EME stations could see ZF2EM, but ZF2EM could not decode them, sounds familiar?
After several failed attemps to contact ZF2EM myself, it became clear to me that the conditions were Non-Reciprocal so I decoupled RX and TX polarities and gave it a shot... After my first TX sequence in that mode, ZF2EM decoded me and replied to my transmission right away! Watch the video...
Once again, thanks to the RPOL flexibility! Without that capability, that QSO would not have happened...







***WARNING: For Best Resolution for the videos below, it is critical to select 720p HD resolution in the youtube "settings" at bottom right of the player. The 360p default setting won't yield good enough resolution to see the details. It will take several seconds before the High Resolution kicks in, so you will need to restart the video from the beginning when the High Resolution is active and select to view the video in "Full Screen Mode" for best experience...***
