After a couple of months, tested out of my balcony house, now beacon is located in a more opened place. Antenna is about 6 meter above the ground level.
First report was received from George DJ7KG on April 13th 2007, after about one week of work.
All OM and SWL are invited to send reports, for info where send reports see contact on header menu.

Here follow the hardware schematic, click to enlarge. It's a very simple hardware, easy to build. All work is made by a 74hc240. This is about the same circuit used for 30 m. MEPT.
