Hi MF,

Since the last 3 days i'm running the beacon now. So far, i've got 46 RX reports! There are several newcomers! Some are just listening, others are almost ready to transmit, preparing their PAs and antenna coupling, others are known radio amateurs. Often the reports are quite extensive, containing files like images, mp3 and video reports (e.g. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzXoqmaBSB8 ) A few stations are looking to my qrz.com page and some even subscribed to this reflector after that! :-)
Much work, today i have to answer a few dozen emails ;-)
Let's hope it will lead to increased CW activity on 630m....
The beacon will continue to run until this evening or so...

Hi MF,

I the recent DL amateur radio magazine (CQDL), there was an article about a PA for the 630m band. Actually a good design and even the right class of power ;-)

Thus i guess there will be increased RX-activity by HF amateurs listening the first time on 630m. I always hoped there will be more active CW stations on the band, initially starting with some WSPR, then moving to CW (too). Now i think it could be useful to run a CW message repeatedly on 473.8 kHz. I will see about the responses and will mention reporting stations in the text, like done in the NAVTEX transmissions. At least i'm getting regular (about 1 per week!) reports by stations beeing RX-active on the band. Some are on the way to come on air, like e.g. DL6TY from JO44! :-)

In my opinion, 473.8 kHz is far enough away from the CW QSO segment. Just tell me if the band is (actually!) overcrowded, then i will move a bit higher.
Running reduced power from the small 12V PA.
Right now there in no copy of the signal in Twente, to be expected...

Also this may be a good study of QSB and propagation for older OMs focusing on good old analog modes :-)

(PS: Just kidding about the wrong typed word bacon/beacon ;-) )
