Hello Wolf and All,
info about the working conditions of DK3GH - he is living 9Km
He has only 12watts out from a two-tubes transmitter (EL84 and
LS50), but his 40meters long wire is up 50meters(!) on the top of a 16-floor
apartment house, where he lives. And he looks far down to the
110kV-high-voltage-line. A dream. Sri Ralph is not on the
73 Walter DJ2LF
I hard MB2HFC on saturday and sunday with good
signal, but got no reply.
I guess the 136kHz->144MHz transponder has
the same problem as some AmSat's, suffering from very strong
"inband" signals as they were present this weekend.
was nice to listen to a lot of QSOs going on. Heard but not worked:
OH1TN (549), EI0CF(439 in local QRM), MB2HFC(559), G3YXM(589).
Worked for the first time: DK3GH in southern DL, loc JN59, 449 in
local QRM (would otherwise have been perfect copy). Thanks Ralph if you are
on this reflector.
Also thanks to the Crawley guys and all at the
LF(!) meeting to trigger some activities on the band. I will try again later
today, but the QRN is already on its way. It is unusually warm for the
season here, 22 deg C and very humid. Thunderstorms on the way, static
crashes on 137 kHz already audible at 11:00 UTC.
Best wishes, have a
Wolf DL4YHF (operating from DF0WD in JO42FD,
max 100mW ERP).
