    with the furthermost 3B8FR (10041km).

    QDX digital transceiver

    This looks an interesting digital transceiver from QRP-Labs. It is probably beyond my fine motors skills to build it these days and is not available
    for 15m, 12m or 10m, well not yet. I suspect they will make these bands available next year. It is very small.

    Posted: 13 Nov 2021 12:41 PM PST http://g3xbm-qrp.blogspot.com/2021/11/10m-ft8-saturday.html

    At about 1500z, I stopped TXing on 10m WSPR and went instead on 10m FT8 RX.
    So far (at 1516z) 10 stations spotted with the furthermost ZS6JBZ
    (9117km). I also spotted a 7Q7, but this was not on PSKreporter.
    UPDATE 1843z: 32 stations spotted. I suspect this is it for the day.
    UPDATE 2026z: Nothing further. QRT soon.
    UPDATE 2040z: QRT.
