If any of the former DECCA sites are favourable to the North Atlantic and
you are willing to try 10 wpm CW, I will alert Jack, VE1ZZ to listen during
Sundown in Halifax and Sunrise in the UK. You will need to be between
137.750 kHz and 137.799 kHz to let Jack get as far as possible from CFH on
If there is a North Atlantic test from a DECCA site I will also lay out a
2500 ft Beverage optimized for Europe and 1000 ft of coax feedline with
about three days notice.
My receiving system has improved here over the last months. I have heard
(seen) the AMRAD beacons and have also copied the LowFer signal from VE3OT,
Mitch near London, Ontario.
I am seeing DCF39 reliably every night that I look for it, occasional
periods of static from storms to the south of me cover it up but the signal
is still very visible here in Eastern Canada.
The window of low noise on LF is closing fast here, if anyone can move quick
to a good site please email me ASAP. If time is of the essence for your
test, consider phoning me at 613 - 273-6201 and leave a voice mail if I do
not answer. Best time for answering the phone is 00 utc to 04 utc or 10 utc
to 11 utc.
