The VK3RRU 10 Meter Beacon operates on 28.263MHz CW.
STATUS 01/01/15 = ON AIR after repairing the recent damage caused by a ligtning strike. Beacon may not be operational 24/7 for the next couple of weeks due to site works, but it will be ON more than OFF...
The Beacon uses a Maxlog M8800 10 meter transceiver for TX and an Arduino Uno development board to control the keying. All components are housed in a rack mountable enclosure with additional fan cooling. The antenna is a 1/2 wave vertical (a modified "stationmaster"). The VK3RRU beacon sends the following message at 14WPM, with a 45 second pause:
"VK3RRU VK3RRU - QF15AT MILDURA - PWR 12W - VK3RRU@GMAIL.COM"
This beacon is owned and managed by VK3XPT and VK3ZDX. For spots, questions or comments please feel free to email us at: VK3RRU at GMAIL.COM
Note: The Sunrasia Radio Group operates other repeaters and beacons under the same callsign, VK3RRU. For more information, please see their website: www.sunradio.org.au
