Subject: LF: New RX site at DK7FC
Finally! Finally i have my own piece of garden, since monday. It is
outside the city, most probably in a very quiet location. The
dimensions are roughly 20m x 80m, i.e. 1600 m^2. The locator is JN49IK24
that's 2.4 km distant from my TX location.
I'm planning to arrange several RX antennas for LF / MF and VLF! (No
XYL is limiting the possibilities :-) ).
Later in the afternoon i'm arranging a first antenna, something like a
T antenna, maybe in 6m above the ground, tuned to MF just to get a
first impression. MF WSPR test transmissions are welcome! :-) So far i
have mobile internet and can upload some WSPR spots.
I will also install 2 orthogonal RX loops later. Same for LF and VLF.
There is no electricity, so no QRM :-) With some luck i can arrange a
WLAN repeater in some 15m high trees which are on the property. Solar
panels could be mounted into the tree as well as some accumulators in
combination with a homemade linear regulating solar battery charger.
There are a lot of possible projects to do. And now it will show how
easy it is to get fine RX results if you live in a quiet location,
using a clean earth and a large RX antenna that doesn't need a preamp
OK, let's go!
