MF TX season started!

Last night I’ve been transmitting for the first time after the summer period. A new look to the the TX antenna was made to simplify the shape and get more gain. Now the hat is about 16 meters long and the vertical side is about 9 meters high.

The 6 wires of vertical slope are […]

My 630m WSPR New One: OY6FRA

Last night I’ve had a session of WSPR and Opera on 630m, added a new one for me in WSPR: Faroe island with OY6FRA, 2627 Km.

Despite map’s appearances the best DX was with EB8ARZ with 3008Km.

A total of 83 stations copied my signals.

A small summary of the last months

Here follows a PDF doc where is possible to see all my unique stations transmission report on WSPR MF band, they are in descending order of distance. I still didn’t compiled a ranking by country but it’s easy to see how many DL and G are in the log.

Remoting RX – IK0VVE/0

Because of strong noise at home, in these nights I’m receiving MF signals from Monte Ripoli remote station. There the noise is very low and I can dispose of good performance antennas, not MF/LF dedicated for the moment.

Here is a screenshot of my signal (on the left) while just some minute before (00:18) the […]

The 630m antenna

In the last weeks I’ve tested a new antenna for 630m band. To have also something usefull for 2200m I’ve built an helical loaded vertical antenna followed by a 3-wires hat, so to have a longer radiator that resonate about on 350 KHz.

The coil was about a 45 meter long 3 cm aluminium […]

Again on the air with WSPR 630m

Tonight was the second night for my new 630 meter antenna test. Thanks to the increase of Lowfers fellows I’ve had the possibility to have more receivers that last year. I’ve been listened by about 40 different stations in more than a dozen of European country.

This image is relative to the night between […]
