That's amazing. Pretty soon we will have DXCC on any band that we can erect a 30' dipole.....all without ever having to actually be present in our "shack".
 
Progress?  Not for me to judge.

       I loaded OPERA for the first time yesterday to copy Bob WE2XGR/6 ...
which worked great.  Then this morning I looked at the program more closely.
I was using it with my SDR/IQ to copy Bob but saw it was being used to
actually make QSO's on all of the HF bands. I have a Flex-5000 and installed
OPERA on that machine. It runs with the Flex just great. It keys the
transmitter, talks to the Virtual Comm Ports, and completely controls the
Flex in frequency. On 14.065 Mhz this morning, I started copying a lot of
Europeans with it. I got brave and hit the "TX" button. The Flex went into
the transmit mode and about 2 minutes later about 7 stations who copied me,
all DX,  scrolled down the screen. I was running a power of 5 watts to an
Inverted Vee.
       I put it into the "Auto QSO" mode and within an hour, I had 30 DX
QSO's automatically logged complete with real signal reports both ways. I
sat with it so it was not unattended!! I'm sure that this will be quite
controversial but is sure was fun!

OPERA needs a CW ID option with a selectable timer.
