“RF Seismograph” Improved to Better Reflect Band Activity

Coastal Ham Radio

The Scanning RF Seismograph, a real-time HF propagation-monitoring tool developed by the MDSR Team and Alex Schwarz, VE7DXW, now can show both combined band noise and activity and just band activity. The RF Seismograph, which covers 80, 40, 30, 20, 15, and 10 meters, is a project of the North Shore Amateur Radio Club (NSARC).

IARU VHF IS OVER 

Great fun!

I was gladly part of DR9A Team this year from their usual location in JN48EQ aftre 4 yeras of absence on the 144 MHz band.
Murphy visited us a couple of times before the contest when all was going ok but we could recover.

Anyway we were into the contest and we had a great fun especially on the live score board at http://slovhf.net/en/claimed/

We did an impressive work at DR9A to catch up our gap in the last hours of the contest on Sunday. I am glad that we reached this 2nd place in the declared !

Of course at the end of the contest began to rain and it did not make things easy for the disassembly process.

Congratulations to all and thanks to the top teams for the adrenaline generated this weekend!!
