Olivia … the magical mode !

munecos-goma-alambre-bendables-popeye-y-olivia-oil-blister-4005-MLA115227388_7840-OI’m testing out about all available digital modes for HF. The one I get stuck on for a long time is the Olivia mode. I put it on the 1st place in my favourite DIGI mode list. Olivia is amazing, brilliant error free for ragchewing !

What is Olivia ? Read all about it on http://www.oliviamode.com/ and you will have an idea what and how.

Don’t expect a lot of activity in this mode but being daily QRV it always give me a world wide log.

Around 14073 you can often find stations in the Olivia 8/250 mode. Sometimes 8/500. Around 14107.5 there is a lot of Olivia 32/1000 activity (channelised 14106.5 and 14170.5) Also try around 7043.  Always in USB mode on the transceiver.

About what you can expect in Olivia, here some eQSL from Olivia QSO’s

    Have been on Olivia several times. Unfortunately it takes a lot from your radio. At least when you have a chat, which is normal in Olivia mode. Last time my old Icom-706 went glowing hot using this mode and I had some strange faults after the QSO. So, I let Olivia go till I have a radio that stays cooler. 73, Bas
