07/14/2013 - ARES Simplex Radiogram exersize

We successfully passed traffic messages in 2 directions simplex at a distance of 21 miles with perfect copy on both ends. Pat WA4OQG was our net control. David KD4NOQ was at Longtown (mile 35 on Interstate 40) We also tested using D-Star on low power and found with 5 watts we had perfect decode digitally where Analog FM was noisy. Next time we plan to utilize D-Rats over RF to send a message.
