The 2200m TX system will begin on air tests this evening (Vancouver ,BC,
Canada, local time.)
I just completed the variometer and a simple K0LR type TX on steriods (5-15W)
that will be used to tune the antenna system and begin low power beacon tests.
A CW QSO with VE7SL will be attempted in the coming days and we have both
discussed running both stations in beacon mode over the weekend a few Hz apart
and at low power...
Within a week or so the power level will be raised to ~100W and when I feel
that I'm not going to burn down the neighbourhood brief periods of 300W+
trials will begin. If these trials are succesful the TX will be sent to Steve
for further field trials and work will begin on the 1KW transmitter.
Our activity will be centered around 137.574KHz.
Major updates on the LowFER and LF refectors.
Presently LowFER 'TIL' is on to assist Steve is selecting the best time and
antenna configuration to conduct our planned QSO with. The LowFER will be
decommisioned this evening for the time being...
