We have got a special permission to radiate 1kW ERP (!) in the
135.7 - 137.8 kHz band during our "dxpedition" to Karlsborg on
Saturday the 27:th of November.
A lot of power, can I charge blown-up front-end transistors to you ? .... ..
We expect to be QRV from Saturday afternoon and we will continue
until dawn on Sunday.
We estimate there is a slight chance that our signals can be heard,
or at least detected, across the Atlantic ocean. Aim your loops at
Sweden and load some FFT software into your PCs (Spectrogram etc).
As you are at a rathern northern position best chances to be heard at the
other side of the pond will be eastern VE and north-eastern W. Distance to
very east of Canada should just be over 4000km, North-East US abt. 5000 to
5500km. Extra advantage is that the complete path is very northern.
Suggestions for frequencies, sked times etc. are welcome. Write to:
During the GD DX-pedition I had some problems copying the GD stations
because 2 nearby stations were calling straight on the transmit frequency
of the GD. Working 'split' maybe a good idea :
a. you will cause no QRM to others trying to copy the 'DX station'
b. if we spread out everybodies chance to be heard will increase
Good luck with the operation,
