1593-CNR1 Monster Signal This Morning  View Printable Version

And these are the beasties that you will take to Hawaii?

I need to put up a Flag soon -- feels like there could be some TP DX happening in spurts.

Currently using an 80-10 end fed for HF ham yakking...

Understood Gary. I'm a big believer in letting the antennas doing
the bulk of the freezing at this location, hi.

best wishes,

Nick

Thanks for your preliminary report, Nick.

FSL antenna testing in the frozen back yard is typically a
hit-and-run operation of less than an hour, timed to coincide with
any propagation peaks. The live DXing and audio recording done
during these tests isn't really suitable for a detailed band
investigation, or to permit one to stick around until Asian signals
finally sink into the noise. I admire you for your patience and
commitment in doing this every morning, but the current goal here is
coming up with wacky and wild FSL antenna combinations to provide
cumulative gain-- and hit-and-run testing is the order of the day.

Gary

In my neck of the woods Friday evening, there were more carriers than
usual on LW and the 9-kc MW channels. Probably the best night all winter
for me!

162 â Allouis, France, IPHA data, strong steady signal

183 â Sauberg, Germany, with a weak carrier

198 â BBC Radio 4, with very good audio

207 â Iceland or Morocco, with a weak carrier

252 â Radio Algerienne, Tipaza, Algeria, with varying audio, music was
better than voice but the language barrier probably had something to do
with my ear's interpretation of the audio

585 â Unknown station with a solid carrier

684 â Unknown station with a solid carrier and very weak, unintelligible
audio

855 â Unknown station with a solid carrier
