Perfect. A nice progres!

Yes, a local site in just a few km distance is a very nice thing! And
it may be better to have your own site, without any neighbours who
could run a noisy power supply. When it's all your, then you can
remove, replace, modify any QRM sources without discussions and
A perfect place could be the remote station of RCR-DX in monte
Ripoli near Tivoli (http://www.rcr-dx.eu/r-c-r-.html
internet connection 50Mbps UP/DW! But it is not so close to my home and
I need an hour and half or more to reach this place, if any problem
occur I could spend a day to solve it! So for now I would see some
Do you also plan to run it with solar power? My system has no problems
any more since the end of February. And in winther there were a few
things running sub-optimal since the project was very new to that time.
Oh, that's very far. I rather expected something like 20 km.
Rick (IW4DXW) and
Dom (IZ7SLZ) are each about 680 km far from me, the first to North and
the second to south east.
Hmm, he doesn't tell us.
I know Rick is transmitting in these hours.
What does that mean? An overloaded RX? With such a large antenna on the
soundcard you will need a low pass filter. Simple RC chains would work
well. Maybe 2x 10kOhm + 1nF.
chenged the RX antenna from 60 wires loop to the TX (un-tuned) antenna
of 630m, I've seen signals growing all over the band.
Yes sure. These days i am very convinced from loops.
So also this could
be a point of discussion for the next remote station. May a single turn
loop antenna be good also for me?
If you also want to use a Raspberry Pi for remote controlling the
system, you can easily use some mono stabile relays to switch between
different antennas, maybe 2 loops and an E field antenna.
73, all the best
I'll keep the list
updated about my grabbers.
