…and luck in the New Year! A few updates on PJ4Q, 630M, and MEPT bea­cons on 30M

2014-11-20 12.39.44

PJ4Q in 2015 CQWW CW has come and gone. Awe­some to see my in-coun­try bud­dies Peter PJ4NX and Steve PJ4DX, along with Scott W4PA and Robert S53R. We did not do as well as last year, tech­ni­cal dif­fi­cul­ties destroyed the rate, but had a great time in any event. Check my PJ4/​WF7T QRZ​.com page for QSL info.


WSPRnet

I have been lis­ten­ing in on 630M WSPR activ­i­ty (474.2 KHz USB using WSPR by K1JT). Fas­ci­nat­ing! I may even be tempt­ed to apply for an exper­i­men­tal license and trans­mit pri­or to the offi­cial FCC release of the band for gen­er­al ama­teur use. As usu­al, time is my ene­my.

QRSS 30M

The 30M QRSS/​MEPT bea­con is up and run­ning for the moment. I am QRM­ing the reg­u­lars (sor­ry) around 10.140042 MHz, or seen from the W4HBK Pen­saco­la Snap­per . Send me a report if you see me. The rig is an aging QRP Labs 30M kit (G0UPL) at ~200mW to my 40M dipole. I will keep it run­ning dur­ing Stew Per­ry Top Band Dis­tance Chal­lenge this week­end, but I will need my 40M dipole back for the ARRL RTTY Round-up next week­end.
