QSL card from JG2XA

HF-Doppler(HFD) Project

This station has been heard sending "JG2XA JG2XA JG2XA UEC HFD STATION" in CW on 8006.45 kHz, using 200 watts.

Radio propagation beacon JG2XA was established on July 3, 2001 at the Chofu campus of the University of Electro-Communications (UEC), near Tokyo, Japan. The station is operated by Sugadaira Space Radio Observatory, UEC, for the HFD Project to study ionospheric disturbances.

JG2XA transmits continuously with 200 W on 5006 kHz and 8006 kHz. The station ID is normally transmitted every 5 minutes by amplitude modulation of the carrier in morse code with the callsign JG2XA and its objective "UEC HFD STATION". The type of radio signal is H2A (amplitude modulation with coded tones by single sidband).

QSL policy

The operators of the beacon appreciate reception reports and we will issue a QSL card.
