474.2 kHz / 630m exceptional TONGA A35EU 60m..



474.2 kHz   / 630m WSPR  last night real good



Note, deleted the first 27 lines of bogus decodes
qth RP22 bogus
there are many false decodes and wrong band reports at 474.2kHz WSPR

SM4GOJ must have a remarkable good reception / location

real rare DX TONGA 60m   and FIJI  
60m DX also real good this morning  besides the  ZL's at 5362kH every morning !
 3D2AG was -9      5357kHz heard A35EU rare in AG28 square
FT8 "loud" -2      but only received
no reply on my report A35EU -2    as if the  WSJT-x FT8  mode was not compatible
And all other calling EU was not decoded 50 calling?

I use 100W and a real antenna no remote receving
only the few EU with the turbo propagation enhancer switch on could generate a poor -15 or so

I use WSJT-x RC3   it has the option DX-pedition mode  and automatic
that mode checks  the advanced FT8 Always generate 77-bit messages
and checks Decode only 77-bit messages


In DX-pedition mode these 77b checks are automatic set i do not decode most of the FT8 signals only the few that use 77bit
but most still have 75 bits FT8 coding
also split mode must be enabled real or fake
But  A35EU was no longer received
he went down 1kHz to 5356 i think but 75bits??
I  have to uncheck manual the 77b mode to be able to receive anything
then when click ok the frequency jumped back to 5357kHz

Fake split
I lost it....


The only way to contact A35EU is to check the Fake QSO mode ;-)

The question is what do the other hams know more then I that they still receive in DX-pedition mode
RC3 hound automatic checks 77b  better say forces 77-bit mode on
It was no good idea to use the rc3/rc4 for hond mode...


it was an exceptional DX night and morning 28MHz VK3KCX 3x decoded !

Hallo Jaap, ik denk dat ze op Tonga de laatste stable release gebruiken. Dus 75 bit. Ik gebruik zelf ook nog de laatste stable release. De RC's zijn voor test doeleinden. 73, Bas

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…

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 …
