Jeff, Michel
 
From the reports it sounds as though your kite antenna worked quite well! 
 
Next time, please consider a period of QRSS30 or QRSS60 beacon activity so we can have a look on this side of the pond. Looked for your QRSS3 signal but saw no trace...

Jay,
QRS 30/60 would be too slow for a kite operation, in fact normal CW is more appropriate because of the qsb dips when the kite swings about and you would only get bits of the signal and no positive ID. Daytime activities in EU would not suit the USA because of the time difference and its really not safe to fly a kite at night time, virtually impossible in the dark.

   Hello all,

  Thanks to Jim, Dave, Wolf and others for the good reports and sorry to see
  so many stations calling us but unable to read them.

  The kite antenna setup by Jeff f6cwn performed very well, beyond our
  expectation - we just wanted to put a good signal on the air - and that was
  the problem as we had very poor receiving conditions, at least 20 dB
  increase in noise level, compared to normal conditions.
  We don't know yet if the site situation (154 m ASL) is involved or not, my
  usual markers near 137750 were not visible this particular day/night.

  Now we need some more time to setup/build measurement tools (we missed
  almost all of them, but a phasemeter) By the way we are very interested
  in the field level at M0MBU to have and idea of the ERP (150 watts RF
  output)

  Again thanks to all.
 
  73 de Jeff F6CWN & Michel f5wk
