Yes, 80m was alive and well.

WA9PWP was 559 here in NJ. All the other sigs were 569 or better, except ADØYM who was 449.

Nice to hear the QNI from Carl, WBØCFF.  He is a vigorous participant in every month's 4SQRP Second Sunday Sprints.

Hi John,

The original (white panel) BJ didn't call for filling any of the vias with solder. In fact, it's not strictly necessary even on the later versions. Just provides a little more conductivity along some critical traces.

On your whited-panel version, if you wish, these vias could profit from being solder filled:
- the vias at the inside of each of the three etched inductors
- the via just to the right of D1
- the via just below C22

It's a fascinating story to be sure and one we've all heard, but did it
really happen as thought? This article offers conjecture of what may
have really happened:

https://www.theguardian.com/education/2001/dec/11/highereducation.news

The conjecture is that the planned frequency to use was in the lower
half of the present AM broadcast band and that these frequencies are
limited in the day time due to D layer absorption. At 12:30 PM
Newfoundland time almost the entire transatlantic path was in sunlight
but by 2:20 PM a good portion would have been in darkness and the sun
getting low in the sky at Newfoundland. Also, being very crude by
modern standards, the Cornwall transmitter may have been generating
harmonics well into the upper MW/lower HF spectrum. Likewise the
receiver at Newfoundland was hardly selective and with a 500 foot wire
may have been capable of receiving into the upper MW/lower HF range as
well. As a result of this conjecture it is conjectured that the he may
well have heard the intended signal but on frequencies far removed from
his intent!

From experience we know that 200 to 100 meters could very well have had
propagation beginning to open especially by 2:20 PM. Of course, we
don't know what the solar flux, K or A indices were for that day but it
is known that it was a period of minimum sunspots (like now) and that no
magnetic storms had taken place in the ten days prior (from:
https://books.google.com/books?id=0vTRMlzf3SoC&pg=PA95&lpg=PA95&dq=sunspots+december+1901&source=bl&ots=5mudvEGgdn&sig=jL34GH5OIXjwM3kSAz4mK6-QeXU&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjPnOed8pzfAhUIzoMKHXgsBrY4ChDoATAAegQICRAB#v=onepage&q=sunspots%20december%201901&f=false
), so something actually happening near our present 160m band--give or
take--seems most plausible to me.

Re: Today's the day 117 years ago

 

The second link is unweildly, here is the original:

http://www.antentop.org/files/fam002.pdf

You can scroll down to page 8 of the PDF to begin reading about the
transatlantic tests. Page 10 is where the Google Books link leads.

Sorry for not finding the original sooner.

Sked Anyone?

Time for me to quit grouching about the propagation and try to do something about it.  Anyone want to try a sked from the Four State area into SEIA? Anyday, anytime, and any band.  I suspect 80M at about 6 or 7P would work ok.
