My purpose: to add an additional VarAC frequency choice which could be used for EMComm or other local purpose without 'hogging' the standard VarAC freq.
- I tried adding 7.050.000 to VarAC_frequencies.conf at the bottom of the list - as did my test buddy
- We both selected 7.050.000 and I started beacons. I also sent a broadcast text.
- My test buddy received the beacon and test, but I did not receive his and I did not see his transmission on either the VarAC waterfall or on my radio's waterfall. ( I am using FT-991A). It seemed to work only in one direction. I suspected something on his end, but we could find nothing strange and when we returned to the standard 7.105.000 VarAC freq everything worked normally. My test buddy was using a Kenwood TS-2000 with SignaLink.
- I tried again with another friend, this time using 7.085.000 ( avoiding some other common digital modes). Different test buddy and similar one-way results.
Is there something else I need to change in settings in order to use a custom frequency in VarAC_frequencies.conf ?
