304-TH - Workin' it


« on: November 18, 2011, 07:47:56 PM »

it's about 5:45 PM Mountain on Friday.
Looking to jam on 160.
If you're going to be around, drop me a freq and time.
The 304-TH rig is percolating. Band sounds good tonight.
Joe GMS just sent me a nice QRO loading cap for the pi-net.

Bill, I guess we missed each other.  I was on 1887 this evening with Fran, W3SCC.  Didn't look at the clock, but I would guess we started about 0400 GMT, and carried on for about 45 minutes.  There was another AM QSO on 1880, so I started up a couple KC/s above 1885 so we would all have a little elbow room.

Band was very quiet.  No QRN.  Just background hiss, sort of like VHF.  No line noise either.  Also, very few signals.  I would have thought there would be more activity on a Friday night in November with no static.  Not a lot of SSB either.

I noticed one of those white noise (probably digital) rushing jobs on 1895.  They were all over 75 this evening. On about 3825, 3835, 3855, 3865, 3870, a weak one on about 3883, and a strong one, probably DRM, on 3955.

They are said to come from Europe. That makes sense, since the Euro 75/80m ham band is only 3500-3800. The rate it's going, I'm afraid the 75m band might eventually be usable only on those frequencies in the US at night time as well, if most of the entire band above 3800 gets filled up with those things.

About 0430 GMT called CQ on 1885.  Worked a station in MI and then one in IL.  No QRM, no breakers, no static crashes.  Like a local one-on-one vhf simplex contact.  No more than half dozen signals heard across the entire band, including the bulletin broadcast by WA0RCR on 1860. No QuaRMtesters using 160 either.

I am missing all these great band condx because I have either been working long hours or getting ready for company for the holiday and travel.  I have not even been able to get my inverted L repaired and back up.   The wind here has been around 40 mph every day.
 Huh Huh
