Thanks, G..

I have changed my tune. It seems one gets more attention when singing in key! Thanks to GW0EZY for the report and the other OP32 grabbers and to
you G. for your help and the new OP bands.  Is 478.477 a good choice
for OP8?

Ok Joe ,

I wondered why you where missing from the map , for last nights sing along !
600 mtrs mid band qrg now 478.500 with +/- 50 Hz pass band
still  477.000  USB . but the  pass  band  has  been  centred  on 1500  Hz

Hi Markus and Graham,

Thanks for the info on op.  I'll look for a lower QRG in
the passband for 2200m OP32.  Hopefully 478.65 is still OK for OP8.

It is planned to add 630m to the 2200m exciter by replacing the
CMOS 4020 (divide by 16) with a faster 74LS161.  The DDS output is
set at 16f and then divided to improve the resolution and square the output, but 16x479 kHz is too fast for the 4020.
Thank-you to IZ7SLZ and SV8RV for their reception reports.

Hi Joe ,

Quite possibly ,

One  of the  unintended  consequences  of  NED !

[ Never  Ending Development]

The last major upgrade to Opera , saw the removal of dual speeds for each band and the audio being centred on 1500 Hz
That put the mid band Rf-QRG at 137.500 with decoder pass band
+/- say 45 Hz
However , decode threshold and false decodes are improved , with
some decodes showing with fade losses of 60%
477K is now  set  at  OP8    478.500  KHz

Thanks Dionysios and Terry GW0EZY for the reports of the OP transmissions.
Thanks also to DF6NM for his grabber and accurate freq measurements.
It seems many OP stations have migrated down about 50 Hz.  Did I miss

The TX was running 240 watts 2.2 amps to the 100 m wire.  Will be QRV
& QRO again tonight.
