story short, after some initial trouble, I have
now reconfigured my ATU and are pleased to
report the new 60 watt beacon transmitter is on
the air continously at 476.5 kHz.
I was finished tuning up the Marconi antenna
with the AA-600 analyzer, I also fine tuned it
with the TX at it's lowest power, then the next
higher power level, then the next and then
finally at full power. The new TX was started at
12 UTC today
run since. The CW beacon cycle consists of it's
callsign and maidenhead at 12 wpm CW and then
four 2.5 sec. carriers at about. 60, 30, 15 and
5 watt! s, before it's all repeated again. This
also means that the 2.5 watt WSPR beacon is off
the air now, so for now I am TX'ing only
in CW beacon mode at 476.5 kHz.
mentioned earlier, I will probably later set up
the beacon for some weak signal modes. I can't
do that right now, because I need to flash in
other software first and I can only do that at
home. So the plan is to let it run as now until
the 17'th May, perhaps a little longer. After
that the 2.5 watt WSPR beacon will be restarted
and run until the next (future) test with an
even more enhanced ATU.
also wan't to say a big thank you to all of you
who so kindly have given me tips and help.
Needless to! say I am most grateful and thanks
to you all.
