A paper QSL-card will be send after confirming your contact by email.
And feel free to mail me screen-shots/audio recordings when I'm doing
digital modes. Specially screenshots from my PI4 beacon..
For transmitting a better signal of the 4m beacon, I'm looking
for an HALO-antenna. It can then higher placed and my tropo
distance will extend. Sponsoring of material (or compleet) is
welcome. Have Paypal, a donation is also welcome.
On 70.095.000 having a PI4 beacon like the OZ2M style
Dial is 70.094.200 USB for use with the PI4-rx programm
It is time scheduled from UTC 7.00 till UTC 21.00.
The sequence is:
00 - 24 seconds PI4
25 - 35 seconds CW FSK
35 - 59 seconds carrier
The beacon produces 5w input into a 4-band inverted-V
PI4 is designed to serve most kind of (known) propagation.
Like tropo, Es, Au, meteor scatter and airplane scatter.
When you hear the beacon, I prefer to notice it in the DX-cluster.
The beacon is already heard by 11 DXCC:
9A, CT, DL, EA, IK, IS, OE, OH, PA, S52, SV
For more info/software use these links:
Everything is homebrew with the Arduino 2560, DDS 9850
and the OZ2M 10/4 transverter with PA.
When you self want to run a PI4-beacon or normal CW, this can
very cheap. For aprox. 20,- euro you have a nice ready kit.
(price is exclude GPS-unit from Ebay or so). Take a watch at:
So when bored of WSPR only need is to change the software
in the Atmel 328, either via an Arduino Uno or direct via ISP.
PI4 software for the Arduino 2560 is written in Arduino's C++
A PI4-version in C++ for the Ultimate 3 is availble.
And I have a CW-keyer for the Ultimate 3.
Also an setup for all ports of the Ultimate 3
for programming your own software.
C++ software and pictures are availble with this link:
