Re: Propagation

John - KK4ITX
 

When I want to check an antenna’s ability I use WSPR, this tells me if the antenna is working.  When I want to see how the propagation is I Call CQ.  During this solar minimum I can not remember not making a QSO when I made the effort.

For at least 5 months of the year I am battery operating from a beach, park or hilltop and back at my Winter Digs I mostly run QRP from a piece of wire. Strange as it sounds but so many look at predictions (weather, propagation and others) and change their plans or don’t even try.

Because they don’t even try it has been SUPER QUIET which means my puny portable 5w can be heard easier, maybe not 1000/mpw but it’s a QSO.

Too many people listening..... Call CQ, it gets reported on RBN others see it and get on the air.

Hope to work you,

72,

John

So did I.  I've used VOACAP befor , but find it cumbersome . Several years ago I used and liked a simpler one, but I can't remember the name.

Tried QNI on 40 mtrs but the band was unforgiving. 80 mtrs was much better with propagation running NW to SE from the Eastern Missouri area. Heard Terry - WA0ITP and KK4ITX better than anyone.

That's ok, running 5 watts can still make contacts!

So I built the first one, light blue, and have the second one ready to build, green.  

It would be cool to have a third one.

Good evening Doug and the group.

I guess you could call this a Pre-announcement for the Bayou Jumpers.

Hang on for another week or so,
Our super Elf (kitter) is working as fast as he can to get them out before Christmas.

More news as soon as I have it!

Thanks for your patience.
