Could that be ionospheric doppler shift? How large is the effect?
I have been working on trying to allocate the effect I see to software
issues and real QSY issues. I am not yet successful and with the tools I
have I may not be able to see the effect well enough to allocate amounts to
each. My sense of it is that part of it is real as it occurs over a period
of hours. The amount is rarely more than 2 milliHz. I have just finished a
special large insulated box in which I will put the IC-706 MKII G this
coming winter, my goal is to try and remove some of the QSY from the
equipment but I need better tools I suspect to make real measurements.
I am trying to get some sort of program running here, but since I am not
seeing anyone show up for TransAtlantic QSO attempts using QRS I will
probably go back to working on DCF39 again.
