Dear LF Group,
I arrived back from my holidays to find my attempts to log
trans-atlantic beacons while I was away had been a dismal failure. The
RCD circuit breaker in the shack had tripped shortly after I left,
apparently due to a faulty mains filter - better than the place going up
in smoke I suppose.
I did copy VO1NA's beacon over the weekend, which was mostly consistent
copy from about 2300utc until 0700, with the usual deep fades from time
to time. This morning, it was still a readable signal when I left for
work a little before 0800 - after it had been daylight for an hour or
more. However, no signs of "MP" or WD2XDW yet.
Still busy deleting spam received while I was away...
Cheers, Jim Moritz
