QSLs Received / Re: The Voice of Tralfamadore QSL package
« on: September 16, 2023, 0411 UTC »
I got QSL #7!  The quality and design really surprised me, and frankly made my day.

Thanks again to the station for the broadcast and the great QSL package.

Paper QSL's just have a certain charm.

Smooth music, I can dig it.

HF Beacons / Re: The Desert Whooper
« on: October 09, 2021, 1043 UTC »
I can't believe how well this beacon gets out for only being one watt.

I can pretty reliably hear it's whoop's and ID from upstate NY, but it's far enough below the noise
for me that the telemetry is too hard to copy.  Around 10:00Z this morning I did catch the battery
voltage of 12.9 though.

Hopefully the noise will drop far enough this winter I can copy the telemetry.

Thanks for a fun beacon!!

Yup, pays to read the description carefully...  Lesson learned...

HF Beacons / Beacon at 7.092mhz HK3QQ
« on: October 04, 2021, 0428 UTC »
At around 04:00Z I stumbled on a beacon I don't see referenced here.
It ID's as HK3QQ, in BogotÓ Colombia.  OM's a ham, his QRZ page lists the beacon at 7.070, but its  on 7.092.

The beacon sends a long string of apparently random letters with a lot of space, followed by "vvv de HK3QQ BogotÓ Colombia locator fj24xr 5W 73".

I have it at 339 here in upstate New York, but it takes some bad fades.
Rig here is an ic-7100 and a homebrew EFHW.
