Other / Someone calling CQ on CB channel 38 LSB
« on: March 13, 2010, 2056 UTC »
Was scanning and the scanner kept stopping on CB freqs.  Looks like 11m is wide open this morning.

Copied a station calling CQ over and over on 38 LSB.  Gave some shortened callsign.  Actually had a couple os QSOs with stations I could barely hear!  I did not know there was an active CW crowd on 11m.  It was pretty funny to hear them having QSOs right over the top of the SSBers all over the freq.

HF Beacons / Anyone include the HiFer band in their scans?

Does anyone else include the HiFer band in their scans?

I have had a little action on the HiFer band, in addition to my own HiFer beacon on 13.565 MHz.

Speaking of the HiFer beacon.....  It just got some new double-shield Times Microwave coax, and it actually improved!  Now, I have to take some new field strength measurements to make sure it is still within limits.  There was a lot of leakage from my old cable which threw my previous readings off, so I suspect there is more signal in the ether now since it is noticeably stringer at my QTH 70 miles away.

Antenna is a hamstick on top of a metal building high atop a mountain with clear shot of the horizon in almost all directions.
