So we suffer SCS - Sun Cycle Sucks. SSB is almost nil without POWER and antenna real estate. Neither of which I have the resources "So what do we do” as the little girl says about the dishwasher.
Go digital! I have setup a Rpi with VNC, FLdigi, JS8call, and whatever else I can stuff in it. Don’t need any audio transport on remote. Connected it to my FT-450 with 6 band vertical and have at it. Works- made a JS8 to TN station from my brother's house in MO on 06/29.
Next in the game plan is a mag loop fix tuned to digital portion of 40M band.
