Personal beacon running 70.040

Postby G4HTZ » Mon 7 Nov 2016, 17:18

I have put a personal beacon on this afternoon on 70.040 running 10w to a halo at 50ft ..qth 10ft asl on east coast of Essex JO01JN

Hope to leave it on between 08.00 and 22.00 as an experiment, each day for a week ...depending if many people spot it or not

Please spot on DX cluster or beaconspot web site ....already 1 spot from G0API at 215km

599 here in South Woodham Ferrers, as you might expect over a 15km path!

Nice to have a signal to check the front-to-back ratio on my new 2 element dual-band yagi. EZNEC says 10dB and I think that's about right.

See you for an SSB QSO sometime.

Hi Steve,

I'm often at home on Mondays and Fridays so I'll be looking out for you. Drop me an email if you fancy a sked sometime (paul at pwtphoto dot com).
