Hi! We are on now these days, often trought the night from a mobile location in Denmark where I'm for a few days...  So power is not high, just around 20 watts carrier,  and with a Moonraker AMPRO vertical antenna. So, not much output but has been logged quiet faraway anyway.

Qsl's will be verified with Denmark as QTH

From 22.00 - 12.00 UTC on 6945 kHz from South America, the last for a while. We have some problems there that I can't figured out from here (Europe) yet... It seems power is not
at 100 watts for the moment  :( But anyway it puts out some power.... 20 watts? 

On 6290.7 kHz 20 watts, from Europe we will put out the Beacon transmission from 22.00 UTC or earlier.. and it will be on to 06.00 UTC. This frequency maybe better for North America I hope.

6342 kHz RPI Beacon audible via Kiwi SDR in Rio, Brazil.   Also audible on W1NT New Hampshire Kiwi SDR.
The Beacon is from the European QTH.

This night from we are on with our beacon transmitter with a little bit more power than usual.
That means 20 watts. Frequency is 6342kHz  CW and it will be from our north Europe QTH. Transmission will
last to 06 UTC tomorrow. We have noted the beacon transmitter earlier this month when using 10 watts in the
eastern part of North America at around 22.30 utc, and also in South America at 05 UTC. Actually it is now
audible via KIWI sdr outside Rio, Brazil.

Sincerely Jorge

I hear a weak signal. Is in Portugese. Can be a harmonic or spurious thought.


2321 UTC I have a weak carrier on 6991 here but no detectable audio yet
2330 UTC I can tell something is there but it is deep in the noise.
2346 UTC Carrier seems to have drifted down to 6990.8 khz
Thanks for the DX tip Radio Pirana International!  :)

YW! I hadn't listen to this band for weeks and then I jumped in to it  :D
