Hi Markus, |
Yes, Jay picked it. A good surprise.
OP32 is about 100 Hz lower in frequency, maybe this is more promising
About the reactive load: If i just run half of the antenna current, the
PA has no problems. BTW i somehow feel that the MOSEFTs become better
by the time, they somehow know now what they have to do (frequency,
di/dt, peak current...) :-)

ah, that explains it! I was wondering
why your fieldstrength had dropped after you went up the
band, thinking that my RX calibration had somehow gone haywire. Hope
your PA doesn't mind the reactive load! Maybe you could temporarily
reduce the coil inductance by half a percent, eg. by inducing eddy
currents in a metal sheet beneath it. Or (perhaps less lossy) insert an
80 nF series capacitor.
Anyway it looks like Jay has picked up your
"QRP" signal already!

Obviously my TX power is about 6 dB lower because of a temporary
metallic construction near the antenna, which brings my variometer to
the lower end, i.e. the maximum resonance frequency below 137.610
Thus my DFCW is not affected but WSPR-15 is QRP as you can see :-( Good
luck anyway :-)

Re: LF: Re: Anyone there?
I've just started my WSPR-15 transmissions for this night but was a few
seconds to late. So the first slot will be 22:30 UTC.
Will someone join to LF?

Dave, following your notice I
reactivated the WSPR-15 receiver, though I have little hope of catching
Robert's signal in my noisy location. But Tom 'HUH appeared on screen
so the setup still seems to work.
Jay, yes I've made a habit of looking at your LF grabber,
and noticed that you've been picking up Stefan's transmissions quite
well. The weather is now getting a bit more quiet here with less
thunder, so I hope to join in again soon.
Thanks both for your replies!

I'm still here ...
Yes, I've been keeping an eye
out for Stefan when he fires up 'Deutschland World
Service' and broadcasts in time slots favorable to the west ;~)

mails for a couple of days - just the usual summer hole, or has
Blacksheep gone offline?
activity from DK7FC every evening, apparently aiming for Tasmania
again. Bombastic signal, as always :-)
everyone a nice summer,
