A good strong signal from LX1PD this afternoon. This is the first time I
have heard him.
Heard Mike XDV calling him later, but with no success.
If you are on the Reflector, please tell us a bit about your setup. Dont
know the name, sri.

Jules is not on the reflector I think.
He must be one of the first, if not THE first, continental station on 136kHz
with a signal that could be heard all over Europe.
I worked him 14 March 1999. He has send me QSL, circuit diagram and
photographs via mail.

LX1PD uses a beatifully looking valve transmitter with 8 pentodes PL36
parallel-pushpull in the final.
Output 1.2kW.
The anode voltage comes from six-phase rectification of the 220/380V mains
without a transformer.

L-type aerial of 200ft, base loaded.

Receivers DrakeR7A and JPS NIR 12 DSP. Jules suffers from a high local noise
level so his reception is not too good.

Jules Braun lives at Hesperange in Luxemburg, JN39BN.
