Hello from Northern Ireland!
Please note if you plan sked via FO-29 check K-index for that time.K-index should be less than 4 for good communication.
Please NOTE*** if you sent your QSL via direct without return postage coverage
or you sent IRC you may not be able to receive my qsl via direct.
Some directs sent back on 24/03/15 to NM3B, Wayne ; DJ8MS, Tor and KB1PVH ,David thanks!
A new States WKD via SAT FO-29 using 5W Half Duplex RIG :KO4MA AC0RA K4FEG.
Thanks to Drew Wyatt and Frank!
Thanks to Hector W5CBF for making 7166km QSO via FO-29!
Maybe someone wants to beat this distance via FO29 please email me for details.
My current activities on Satellites FO-29 and SO-50 and rarely
I have GRID square IO74 within a mile from me. If some interested just tell me.
Please check John's K8YSE recordings:
You can try to RX my CQ signal between 435860 and 435870 kHz in some good pass of FO-29.
QRP power about 5W (FT817). Takes you to listen few times on some bands after QRZ?...
The Output power measured by calibrated wattmeter.
My HF antenna is GP only 5m from the ground (lower point) and highest point at 12m+ CAP hat.Many HAMs who do not have space for the deployment of high and long antenna are wondering which antenna to use for DX QSO with QRP power.After much experimentation I settled on a GP with a capacitive cap.The antenna works well on all bands from 160m to 10m bands.
For SAT work I have same TRX and 3+5 el yagi.
You can find more about construction from the internet.
On 80M band I heard and tried to call KH7 , LU, CO HK and DU1stations but only QRZ...
A lot of stations GUHOR me-they maybe has a poor antenna or equipment
for RX.(in perfect condition)
Please improve RX and I'll call you again.
I asked EDX stations about equipment they using let's see:
ON Low Bands: RX=Beverage TX=GP
ON High Bands: RX/TX=3-4 el YAGI
Some of the HAMs asked me about WAB GRID LOCATOR.
According to Irish GRID system it is J27.
Why to not check a ES propagation at the summer?
It is very enjoyable to work on 6 Meters Band.
Also is good thing to try JT65A mode to create new DX contacts on LOW bands with QRP equipment.
