as Walter already told in his e-mail the German
authorities have permitted a second experimental station to conduct propagation
studies on medium wave. The station with the callsign DI2BO operates under the
same technical conditions as DI2AG (440 kHz plus/minus 100 Hz, 9 W ERP). The QTH
of this station is in Peine near Hannover in Northern Germany (JO52BH) with
me, DK8KW being responsible.
I will coordinate the test transmissions with
Walter so that both beacons can be operated at the same time. To fine tune and
tweak the station currently DI2BO is operating exactly on 440 kHz in plain
The station consists of a ship radio transmitter
DEBEG 7121 with around 100 Watt output which puts about 2.3 Ampere into my 18 m
high umbrella antenna with 5 top load radials. Theoretical this results in an
ERP of around 5 Watt.
