<< Either way it still represents an erp of nearly 30watts.
In which case we should be able to see Jack's signal when CFH is only
30dBs on the Alan scale
It was certainly very strong when the '10 second dashes' were seen in
September. Without the QRN on that particular night they would have been
perfect 'O' copy.
I note from John's comments a few days ago that in recent weeks the strength
of the 128kHz station has been much stronger than the S5-6 recorded on
With a little luck, that should mean that if we know in advance that Jack is
planning a beacon session, reception should be 'reasonably' straightforward.
BTW Did anyone in VE monitor the recent transmission? Is Jack's new crystal
on 136.500 or was he still using the VFO? A little trimming to avoid Loran
QRM would increase the chances of success.
