28MHz open to VK January 15






January 16
160m being heard in Antarctica by DP0GVN Neumeyer Station was a nice surprise
Last 24 hours WSPR   28Mhz bit open again. Its a secret everyone thinks 28 must be dead as a
rock with the low solar figures even spotted at deserted 12m by VU3KAZ

And Antarctica Neumeyer station spotted 160m

15 January   28MHz totally unexpected open

PC problems
trying to boot a laptop that was used longtime running WSPR  24/7  last 2 years at least
But it would not boot W7 anymore  and dead accupack.
It has been kept on AC all months since it was switched of.
Now i need a bootable W7 USB , easy job  if you Google for it...
But al i got to see was error  and unable to  or can not do this or that
"unexpected error"
must say not unexpected for me , i never could start that type of back up tools without error. 
 W7 backup only showed an empty frame 

a system drive can not be made ...

enable volume's  recovering  gave an error  
i would say  an expected error 

making a system backup should be easy but it is a very very difficult task  and therefor  just a few people try it 
Backup end up in error , or it takes hours and Gigabytes
But it is presented as a simple task you must do.

SPF5189z Low noise preamp 23cm

14-4-2018 updated


Above the low noise  preamp 50 - 4GHz    ebay  6€

Tested  2 small porto antennas
1 Baofeng UV antenna left   2nd best signal on PI2NOS
2 eBay DIAMONDSRH805S  wide band 144/432/1200  it works for its size as expected
3 piece of wire :   best signal in the setup...

Unit under test at workbench.
It was stable  50mA  at 5V   few days,  but sudden the current went up to 100mA
And i could  no longer adjust it with the negative bias Voltage.
The - Voltage went to zero and the SPF input port became low Z.
This SPF5189z was broken  no oscillations, no input overload just it broke while i was receiving the PI2NOS 430.125 using a small antenna at the workbench.

The specs of  SPF5189z  say it has an internal circuit  regulating the bias current.
Replaced . again   with an other of the 5 spare SPF i have.
The new one again could be adjusted at 50mA  5V 
The current raises to 150mA  when removing the  negative gate voltage.
Where is that internal bias circuit ?
I suspect  eBay …

2011-01-22 DIAMOND X30 2m 70cm 1m30 Colinear inside

Having relative poor signals on the local 70cm / 2m channels using this Diamond collinear 70/2 combi antenna at a height of 25m. I needed to investigate what could be wrong.
Measuring the cable only 3W is left for the antenna of the 10W 435MHz output from a IC451E
The cable is 30m type H100 Z50 10mm outside diameter it is semi air-spaced but has an impossible 4mm² solid CU inner conductor not much air left. I preferred the H43 Z75 cable having lower loss and mechanical better ratio in conductor size but it is no longer selling i think. This H43
3W should be enough for a comfortable noise free FM signal. But only 27km away at PA0A the signal is weak too weak something must be wrong? I made a simple reference dipole of 2x17cm CU wire.
With this dipole the signals where totally worse. So the Diamond does work?
I got curious to look inside. Maybe moisture penetration degraded the antenna.
This  antenna is rainwater close in its normal vertical mounting position. But take care if your mast can b…

Nice opening10m and 12m to S.A.

SFI  low 70 a 16 K3  still 10m opened up in afternoon to N-Italy EA5 F JN33
F/PD0OHW/M in JN33 decoded 150mW

VP8LP  12m    2-way with GP 7m ag swr 1:3


60m 5,362 open to ZL every? morning
