Hi Seli,

it is not easy today... I needed 500 mW this morning to work SM0RWO, but at the 
moment 5Watts just supports MFSK16/THOR22 with ARQ repeats. Signals are 
extremely distorted now. Still connect is possible in one of the slower (MFSK 
or THOR) modes.

If you are not using yesterday's bleeding edge alpha client, the trick is to 
set 'RxID ON' before 
trying to connect. Your client will then react to the server's mode change 
We are searching for a problem in the server, but I cannot get the system to 
fault even using QRPP power.

The new alpha client kills a few bugs, and I am not able to provoke errors with 
that one.
Maybe one of the reasons is that you live a lot closer to the pole, which may 
influence the 
signals a lot. I have received your beacon with S7 and excellent signal quality 
this morning,
a connect with PI4TUE would have been easy.

So try to set RxID on before connecting...

 Hello all,

 As my distance from the servers is more than others, it is sometimes hard to 
connect, and sometimes I feel that the programs don't do what they are intend 
to do.
 For example I have been trying to contact SM0RWO setting the mode in jPSKmail 
as MFSK16, but the program always transmits in PSK500R, even though the SM 
server shifts to
 MFSK16 and then to THOR8, it still transmits in PSK500R. It even sometimes 
doubles while the SM server, so nothing comes out of this.

 Any advise on program settings, if I have them wrong, would be appreciated.
