Hi all, few cluster spots this weekend and not very serious listening on my
part. I have just acquired a good working sig gen so have been playing with
some measurements on the rx system.

Fri 17th Dec
2328z PA0SE CQ on 136.82
Sat 18th Dec
No QRS activity seen up to 0900z
0851z G4GVC CQ 136.80
1540z G3GRO wkg DJ5DI could not read DJ5DI here ...some SMPSU noise
       but clear trace on FFT
1544z  CQs from G3KEV and G8RW
1545z ON7YD DFCW CQ 'O'
       G3GRO called GI3PDN the GI was very weak with me ...not as strong as
       a week or so ago
1551z G3OLB cq 137.33
2115z G3KEV wkg MM0ALM on 136.8
Left the rx monitoring 136.745kHz with 30sec integration overnight ..nil
Awoke with a streaming cold so no listening.

Activity seemed to be a bit down this weekend, hope the weather is not
causing too much havoc with your aerials. I suspect I got a lot more 50Hz
wandering QRM from seasonal TV watchers than normal, punctuated by the
occasional load 'raspberry' as an S9 carrier with wideband 100Hz mod swished
across the band. These seem to 'park' outside the band most times now, just
leaving a 'rumbling' background noise. I have been told that the spec on
the digital TV sets has been relaxed to allow then to be produced quickly.
this is from that source of some of this noise, I guess it can only get

Cluster spots
The old spots that appeared at 1800kHz for LF are now submerged in chat
from States-side Top Banders uploaded from the Internet by some
who is also creating multiple copies of the spots. So I am afraid the
is not quite as useful as it was for LF. Although there are still some
interesting spots from Germany, from clusters using a different software
