CQWW CW weekend


K3 Low power 3 ele 10 15 20   gp 40 dipole 80  i-L gp 160

10 15 20 40 80 heel goed  s.f.i. nog steeds 110 maar dalend 

Zaterdag ochtend late start 9:30  de 1e nacht overgeslagen ..

In tegenstelling tot de hogere banden was 160m zeer matig op de vroege zondag morgen, 
de band was nauwelijks bezet, de USA big  guns waren niet te horen zeer ongewoon.
Enige 160 USA in log K1ZM  slechts kort en zwak  VY2ZM normaal gemakkelijk QSO.

Ben je niet tegengekomen dit keer. Was ook meer op zoek naar DX. Volgens mij heb ik geen enkele nederlander gewerkt! Mooi resultaat... 73, Bas

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

Having relative poor signals on the local 70cm / 2m channels using this X50 Diamond collinear 70/2  1m 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. My antenna uses SO239 connector UHF type semi air spaced isolator.  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 posit
