Hello Michel and all, |
Sorry, i wasn't able to arrange the antenna today. It is not as easy as
expected. In fact the garden looks like jungle! I had to spend a few
hours to remove greenery, which is a nice work. I like it. I will
progress in smaller steps. Tomorrow i will prepare the tall tree to
climb on it and i will take some better (invisible) wire. To much
effort for a quick test. I want to install the final antenna from the
beginning. It will be the same wire as for the kite experiments....
More later. Thanks for watching.

Good gardening Stefan, hope that antenna plants will grow up rapidly
Listening for your first signals right now ...

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!
