Anchorage 135/137Khz beacon WD2XDW
We will be possibly be testing this weekend but it may go out a week
dependant on work and the hoards of moose that have decided to camp by the
tower. And they arent moved easily.
I need some feedback on a frequency to use - my part 5 licence allows me :
135.895-135.9 kHZ FX 5H00A1A 2 W (ERP) 0.001 %
135.895-135.9 kHZ FX 5H00F1D 2 W (ERP) 0.001 %
135.92-135.925 kHZ FX 5H00A1A 2 W (ERP) 0.001 %
135.92-135.925 kHZ FX 5H00F1D 2 W (ERP) 0.001 %
137.77-137.775 kHZ FX 5H00A1A 2 W (ERP) 0.001 %
137.77-137.775 kHZ FX 5H00F1D 2 W (ERP) 0.001 %
The TX will be a G0MRF kit giving around 200W (Ill probably push it up later
once Im happy) into a 7 wire top loaded 33 metre vertical and earth system,
fed with 100m of LDF450 with about 0.6mH load(ish)
Id like to stay close in frequency to our east coast VO/VE stations if
possible, but certainly dont want to get in the way of 2 ways. Your
thoughts? Where should I plonk the beacon?
I will be using a K1EL prom keyer at either dot 6 or dot 60 keying "WD2XDW",
then once at 15 wpm, then cycle. The beacon will be on when Im in residence
(and maybe more) and the freq source will be a [email protected] SLMS, giving me 1 Hz
I reserve the right to turn it off and listen when conditions are good!
WD2XDW is not licenced for two way communications. Status of the beacon will
hopefully be on my web site www.kl1x.com
Cheers - have a good weekend.
