ARRLCW

The mother of all contests  the ARRLDX
since the 70's  i was active in the ARRL tests  with club call PA0GN
In those days paper logging.   CW 2 weekends  48hour and phone 2 x 48hour.
Dupe checking  had to be done from the paper logs in the weekends after with a group of om's
someone did read the log and the others had to check the calls in the list..
it was easy to make mistakes in the logging  bad  handwriting    wrong time wrong band etc.

A dupe sheet was mandatory  with the log sheets all by air mail.

I wonder if the old time ARRL results are kept somewhere.
Possible in the QST's  of that time.

ARRL DX CW - 2017-02-18 0000Z to 2017-02-20 0000Z - 440 QSOs

 running low power 160m  did surprisingly well.
Good ears on the other site !
And a pleasure to receive on the quiet Beverage   also on 40m.
the f/b is high 15 to 20dB  between east Bev. and West

until the end of this month I can have the Beverages out in the land.

high bands only the dipole sorry enough.
remarkable heard PJ4X  calling  long long CQ test no takers  in the afternoon.

PACC 2017




CW low power.
Het plan was een 2e mast met beam 3ele op te zetten om wat meer speelgoed te hebben
met de te verwachten slechtere signalen.
Dat is niet gelukt.
Wel een zware verkoudheid opgelopen door het frisse gezonde buitenwerk...
Daarom ook niet de 4 el 10/15 opgezet.
Alles bleef bij het oude   dipool 40-80  en vertikaal  160  i-L

Wat technische problemen
nog steeds  TX interrupts op 15m   K3    Synt3  af en toe uit lock lijkt het
zondag geen last meer mee gehad
En  logger delays   na reboot PC was dat over

Vooraf moest nog een stoorbron geƫlimineerd.
De  MEANWELL  NET-35B  kleine voeding  5V 3A  12V 1A  -12V 0.5A
In gebruik voor de  GPSDO TRIMBLE   en 5V voor de W-LAN
Stoorde op 80m tem  10m  ontstoor pogingen hielpen slechts gedeeltelijk.
Deze voeding vervangen door een  eigen gemaakte lineaire 12  5 V .
Het sterk "zwabber" switched mode type storing op vooral 80m is weg.

propagatie:  10 was hier compleet dicht  160m een paar W's  in het log
en USA RBN  rapporten iets beter dan tijdens de CQWW160CW .

1x ZM1T  op 15  verder 0 VK JA   wel  veel RBN reports ZL VK

Low power  dat is dus echt  max 100W  met de K3.
De verleiding om de PA aan te zetten om meer deining te maken heb ik  weerstaan.

PACC regels
High Power: Output power niet meer dan 400 watt.
 Low Power: Output power niet meer dan 100 watt.
 tja dat zijn de wedstrijd regels
ik heb ze niet bedacht van mij mag hoog 1k zijn

 Het zakte snachts tot minder dan 1 QSO per 10min
 Toen ben ik gestopt en heb nog een redelijk nachtrust genoten .
Te weinig ERP en matige condities.
Als elk CQ raak was geweest dan had ik misschien 10000 QSO gehaald  (...)|

De teller bleef dit jaar op 1118 staan,  lager dan de voorgaande jaren natuurlijk
Zeer goed merkbaar dat  cyclus 24 definitief over is.
in 2016 was 10m nog goed open.

2017-02-11   for the first time in 2 weeks no decodes
 
After excellent MW propagation the first week of February.
Slowly all is returned to normal. Or below normal?
Less and less decodes of USA experimental stations.
WD2XSH/17   is the only one left.
Surprised to see no one else in EU last night reported WD2XSH/17 or others  not  even from the UK.
That confirms the west Beverage must be real okay for 630m.
Strange enough it does not perform special on the 160 80m.
The only other TA decode in the WSPR database of last night was Louis in Benidorm being  heard by WH2XZO
Remarkable  good  results  with 80W   a fantastic  location on a 90m high building with relative small antenna's
My QTX behaved stable  80% at 70W DC  no more FETS used..
the best decodings  are just over 2000 Km.

477.7kHz VO1NA

Good signal 00:30   heard for over an hour.
CQ de VO1NA  in jo33hg  529 559
QSX 3525.5   X-band QSO  thanks Joe
I can not share the recording the easy way by paste here on this blog
audio clips on Blogger are not allowed...
I made a video clip with the Lumea 640 Phone
But  Windows  phone .
OS W10  uses all  RAM resources for W10 house keeping.
It needs terrabytes.. to do anything,  Although W10 is improved over W7.

this is the link  it does not play in my browser may be wav is an unknown audio type ;-0
Store the audio clips at my Qsl.net site  and play it at the blog has worked in the past.

 http://qsl.net/p/pa0oos//2017/vo1na_477_1.wav

last night 474.2 WSPR  result not as good as the days before
many decodes again of WD2XSH/17
best was -15
2017-02-05 03:14  WD2XSH/17  0.475648  -15  0  FN42pb  1  PA0O  JO33hg  5630  49
and  WG2XPJ  best -25
no ZF1EJ this time

My QTX  did gave up its duty yesterday but if  60W  will be good enough to be heard?
Why it had to gave up just before the special event?

need a stronger TX
About 20 blown up IRF540    since 500kHz  became available
It can work a few days reasonable and then again sudden one more fet blown
I gave up on this one

The IRF540Z  2300pF  input load is too hard to drive in class D  for me
I have spend many many hours to get the QTX working as it should be
100W  with a cool FET  but failed.

this is my latest last? attempt to get the QTX working for me

I use the old IC706 for 474   the Flex1500 is not flexible enough to cover 630m..
 I have a simple active bandfilter to make the IC706 receive and drive at 474.2 kHz
Using a Beverage to west 350m long QTF 290
The QTF045 Beverage works good but there is nothing to receive in east direction at 630m

Bogus decodes WSPR 474

ZF1EJ  alweer  nu 3 x  gedecodeerd

vroeg in de morgen nu "SA" baken uit richting oost   het SP "BIA" is weg

630m 474.2kHz WSPR  does show remarkable more bogus decodes  compared to other band.
While just the low frequencies should  offer the best quality signals for WSPR decoding.

I have rarely false decodes on 474.2 kHz
But the reception on the Beverage  has very low noise it very quiet as long as the house noise sources are switched off.
F.i. the Lenovo 125W 19.5V power adapter that is EMC quiet  does make QRN like RFI at 474.2


a screen full of bogus decodes



this night did not look good at all
160 and 80m very poor  but again the 2nd part of the night night offers the best propagation
 again ZF1EJ ODX   even 3 decodes
also the Beverage's  only seem to work well at 630m
Will change the 1:9 transformer tomorrow
