Utility / What Is That Wideband 4.5mhz - 5mhz signal??
« on: April 29, 2018, 0125 UTC »
I'm getting back into UTE dxing after being away for many years... So I'm tuning around the 4.5mhz - 5mhz area, hearing this wide band "zeewosh, zeewosh, zeewosh" at about one second intervals. Reminded me of the old OTH radar interference. What the crap is this crap??  :P :P

Good Q5 (audible) copy here in North Central NC. Very little qsb. Another dusk reception. Possible gray line propagation at work?

Any old folks out there (like me) remember the KW SSB group out of Long Island back in the 1970's?

10/11 meters / 11 meter/CB Simplex repeaters in the U.S.?
« on: December 06, 2017, 1725 UTC »
I did a search here and found an excellent list of 11 meter simplex repeaters (posted by the moderator I believe) located in Europe, Russia, etc, but I didn't see any mention of any U.S. based simplex repeaters. Has anyone logged any CB simplex repeaters located here in the U.S.?

22 Meter Band Beacons / New HIFER Beacon "RF" is on the air!!
« on: November 07, 2017, 1900 UTC »
Just completed construction and it's on the air...

13.561.82 mhz (+/- 100hz) 5wpm CW, Grid square EM96

(edit = moved to 13.564.20mhz)

Two transistor, scratch built, (except for the $12 keyer board) xtal controlled, Antenna is an 80ft end fed wire connected to an MFJ artificial ground tuner. The beacon transmitter is located in my very temporary radio desk/shack on the second story in my home, a terrible radio location but I'm making due until my basement shack is completed in a few months from now.

I had to work through a few stability issues but it's pretty solid now.

Reports please!!
