1st QSO with PSK-20

After a while just monitoring this morning, and checking settings (remember to turn that sound card AGC off!) I fired up and answered a CQ. My 3W PSK-31 signal was answered first time by 9A5ZM in Croatia. He reported my IMD at -17dB and S/N of 25dB, solid copy.

So all is well with the rig. It has a 5A fuse in at the moment, which I will change for something more appropriately rated later. But im happy with it and its performance. Im only a little sad that some of the lettering rubbed off during drilling for the mods. I'll find  a nice box to keep it and its cables in, ready for field use.
