WCK now operational from SE Minnesota
« on: December 05, 2018, 0205 UTC »
I have placed beacon WCK on the air from extreme Southeast Minnesota, grid square EN43AR, 13.56025 mHz.

Signal reports may be emailed to W0WCK@arrl.net.

At 0310utc I tried to tune it in but there is too much rhythmic fast chirps and beeps 24/7/365 from a huge commercial/industrial area just west of O'Hare airport and I am located 5 miles (8km) north of that. Maybe I'll try on xmas morning but they'll probably still be there.

I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com
