QSL image for N2NXZ

Caneadea,NY - FN02wj remote beacon below is now active and has been transmitting on 28.232 mhz (decreased voltage)-28.2325 mhz (Increased voltage) since 10-26-2013.

Approximatley 150 milliwatts output and depends on solar power.

(Wind power now added)

Antenna is a fiberglass vertical.



Trying my luck with those satellites lately.Please be patient with me as I am just getting a grasp on how things work.

Not to mention,testing the antennas shown below.

Emails welcome.

Below are other activities of interest here.

Balloon launched 12/07/2013 is possibly floating in the Atlantic Ocean with both payloads in styrofoam containers.

If the notes inside stay dry maybe they will float ashore someday...you never know.

11/16/2013 -

Balloon left the ground today @ 14:30 UTC.Confident that it made float ,still flying and makes it through a night to see another day.

Update : 12/01/2013 - The balloon was found in New Hampshire in good shape ironically by a fellow ham operator while out walking his dog.

Simply amazing and many thanks to Bob,KC1ADI for the quick email with the great news.Photo below >

12/02/2013 - Another launch planned sometime this week providing weather cooperates.Tracking onboard thanks to Anthony,M0UPU.

Here is the payload details,email welcome as we need trackers in the USA.

The balloon will be transmitting RTTY @ 50 baud via two payload :
N2NXZ-1 is on 434.550Mhz
N2NXZ-2 is on 434.445Mhz
144.800 APRS when nearing Europe.
CW 10 meter beacon on 28.219 mhz
All subject to drift.
Tracking information -

Balloon made a favorable altitude and was last tracked leaving the USA over the Maine/Canadian border.

We suspect it went down in the Atlantic lacking lift the following evening.

Better luck next time.Thanks to Mike-KB1UTD,Steve-KB1TCE and Mike-KB1DBL for tracking in such short notice.You made the whole thing worth it!

And of course Anthony-M0UPU for his really cool trackers and everyone involved with their support.

Retired the Kenwood and moved on to more options with a Yaesu FT-897.The TS-520SE served me well and is still a great radio.

Ok,lets be honest ,this is what things really look like at the rig.

Above is the Maco M103 - 3 Element beam modified for 10 meter band.Obviously reconfigured for 10 meter operation.The reflection of the 135ft dipole is also in the shot which is used for 10-80m.

Balloon beacons ! We also enjoy sending transmitters aloft on balloons.

So far,only 2 of 8 have been recovered.See the others more recent here -


UPDATE November 2012 : Balloon payload was found by hunters 80 miles East of launch site in Erin,NY.

Hoping to send more balloon beacons every field day in the future using 28.224 mhz.


Took my first exam in 1991 for my Novice license and was KB2NCY.

Soon after took my Tech exam and now have N2NXZ.

Finally took my General class in May 2009.

Using a simple interface for digital modes with Multipsk software.

So far,10 meters is my favorite band and transmit every chance I get using PSK31 on 28.120.

Check for your signal and 10m propagation when using bpsk31 mode here >


Monitored the 10m band since 2007 to present as it is the most mysterious and unpredictable.

Much of my radio time is spent scanning the beacon portion of that band and experimenting.

My radio is a Kenwood TS520SE and microphone is a vintage Calrad model 400C.

Recently put a center fed E/W dipole up for 10-80m @ 30 feet.

Below is my website with photos,hobbies,field day location and useful links that may save you hours of searching.
