I like your reports about the WX and the TX and propagation stuff. Pse don't stop telling us, even if there's not much response :-)
Still remember the last years traces on your grabber. I hope you can leave something here in EU this season.

Hi Stefan - no chance over this way - condiitons over the N Pole are more than poot/poor at the moment - As the sun went down last night till dawn this morning Aurora were visible to the Zenith even covered by a thin cloud bank.
I think I must be adding to Global warning as the Tx appears to be heating the ground and little is getting thru this disturbance. I did get a DFCW report from Jack  down in BC Canada last night which I was very grateful for (he was also seeing MP well)  but nothing further. Such are conditions up here at the moment.
Still Ive been working on the TS850 to give it a GPS referenced master 20MHz source from my 10MHz system and appears good (Ebay SMD kit from the UK which I didnt screw up - even tho the components kept on dissapearing - hiding in my morning toast crumbs!), and now the new board now sits where the SO2 original TXCO would have been installed - quite good really as it switches automatically to the external source if available or back to the internal 20MHz if not - my first go at SMD
Sorted out the defeat the Tx below 1.6MHz logic so it can actually transmit on 500 and 137kHz directly :-) , and will finish the logic switching circuit to automatically route the tx drive signal below 500k to "IF" RCA socket on the back - all this courtesy of Bob ZL2CAs notes. Ill need to add a buffer to get to the >5V logic level for the Decca but have the board just about complete for that and that will sit in the Decca.
So - not wasted time even though I do keep looking out of the window and hoping the Aurora goes a way - it could be a week or more before we recover on some paths....still it is still awe inspiring looking at all them amps flowing about up there....
