A brief update. First, the relevant website which has a lot of interesting material is

Vincent and I have conducted a number of tests using a couple of FT-290 Rii and laptop computers. Initially it was over a distance of about 2 Km, but then using the same power (1.75w) we managed a good contact over 24Km. This was on 144.975 lsb

Tonight there was loose European qso at 1900 UT but despite being on time and using the to see who was doing what on which frequencies, we heard nothing at all. We can now easily connect to the Yaesu at the club using either a hardware decoder (SM1000) or a laptop and plan to attempt a short link on VHF, this time using a couple of the SM1000s
