6m Sixbox AM QSO No 2

RS59 from G6ALB this evening with the SixBox 50mW AM transceiver. In putting the transceiver in its box and adding the RX tuning I inadvertently removed the coupling cap between the RF and and detector stage so the RX was a little bit deaf. I will add this back tomorrow and expect sensitivity to be back to low uVs level. Even without it, I could hear signals of 2-3mW out from Andrew.

Next week I am in Devon on holiday, so will be looking for some 50MHz AM QSOs with the SixBox from clifftop highspots. I will set up some 6m AM skeds using the local VHF and UHF repeaters.
