NP2X/b Beacon Information
The beacon has been temporarily relocated to a neighbor's house near the NP2X QTH. Particulars about the beacon are:
Rack mounted beacon assembly
The NP2X/b beaconwas graciously supplied, and is owned by, Dave Pedersen, N7BHC /PJ4VHF and Paul, AA4ZZ. Ultimately the beacon will be located to a higher location on a nearby mountain.
The purpose of the beacon is to act as an indicator for enhanced trans-oceanic ducting conditions. For an in-depth discussion of this phenomenon, please see
Dave has kindly constructed these beacons at his own expense and through various beacon “hosts”, such as myself, hopes to strategically place beacons like this around the Atlantic basin. (5T, CU, D4, EA8, St. Barts, V5,VP9 ZD7, ZD8 and ZD9) More information about Dave’s passion, please see his home page at:
The beacon antenna is pointed at Eruope (direction = Portugal) as an indicator of favorable conditions to permit North America to Europe VHF QSOs. It is hoped that ultimately this beacon will be an indicator of conditions favorable for the first North America to Europe QSO (non-satellite or EME), which will qualify for the Brendon Trophy. For an interesting discussion on this, please see
