Yes, I think so.  I haven't done anything on 137 for a couple of years now, so going back to basics is rather refreshing.

Only snag is, a while ago I'd have thought nothing of leaving this system unattended, but after setting my plastic shed alight  a few years ago, and more recently seeing the damage a neighbour had a  few years ago when his shed burnt down and damaged the house (a bonfire out of control) I'm less happy to leave it unattended now :-(

So the daily 6km (minimum!) walk is on hold
12km tomorrow perhaps  .....

Very fine. As far as I can see there's good copy in Germany:

Are you intending to stay on through the night?

I've moved to 136.1738

Hi Andy, 

just shifted my Eu-grabber a few Hz up, and Bingo there's your fine signal. Albeit a bit clobbered up by my local transmissions on 137705 Hz.

If you went a few Hz down to below 136175 Hz you'd surely be picked up by several European grabbers (e.g. DK7FC).

Best 73,
Markus (DF6NM)

Having just put the 137kHz system back together, cobbled together an on-off modulator and reprogrammed a beacon keyer module for QRSS...
I [think]  there's a SlowCW-30  signal going out on 136.179kHz,  which is a few Hz above where Mike said he'd be running in the evening.

Its so long since I've done this on-off stuff hope I've chosen a suitable frequency.  It can be shifted at a moments notice if requested.

As noted by Andy, G4JNT, recently, this week is the 20th anniversary
of the very first Slow CW (now called QRSS) transmission which was
between G3PLX and Andy on the old 73kHz band.

To commemorate this I will be using QRSS on the 136kHz band today,
Saturday and Sunday.

Daytime and early evening I will be using QRSS3 (3 second dot length)
and occasionally QRSS10 (10s dots) on or near 137.690kHz looking for
two-way contacts.

Late evening and nighttime, I will transmit my callsign on
136.1722kHz using QRSS60, each transmission starting on the odd
hours, ie 2100, 2300, 0100 . . . .

Reports on this activity would be helpful

Anyone needing info on how to receive QRSS could look at ON7YD's web
site or send me an email.

Mike, G3XDV
