KPH and the desert beacons
« on: March 08, 2020, 2224 UTC »
KPH is a wonderful resource (albeit it's cheating :-) )  for desert beacon listening.

The 4096 pair is visible here as is Windy up just below 4103.

I can't figure out how to paste images here any longer, but head to

Using KPH definitely isn't cheating   ;D

I don't care what the curmudgeons say about SDRs, or modern radios. It's a hobby and is all for fun.

 # 1:  images are not actually pasted into posts. Instead they are displayed.

 # 2:  images that you see in posts are not stored on the servers used for this forum

# 3:  because images are pulled remotely to be displayed those images must be on-line and directly reachable from the Internet; i.e., they need to uploaded somewhere.

 # 4:  because of # 3, your image must be uploaded to a server; that server could be your own designated (private) server, a shared server, a co-hosted server, or some service like Picasa, Flickr, Imageshack, et cetera.


To share images you take the image link and add some formatting characters before and after the link.

The formatting code looks like this but leave out the asterisk * character:   [*img]link goes here[/img*]

Take an example image link such as this     https://www.prig.ch/images/wspr-20m_680.jpg

....and add the code so it will display like this



If you quote this post and inspect the message you'll see how I added the code to the image link.

Thanks Chris

I guess I used to use photobucket, but I wouldn't go near them with a 10 foot pole any more.

Next time I'll use my Google storage and open a directory so it's viewable.

Sorry about that!


PS:  It was a hoot to hear Windy last week just with a 4' whip on the Degen... but I was in central CA.  Now back on the EC.
