next stop: Monteverde

I have been rather quiet with the updates on this blog.

This is now to confirm my trip to Cape Verde to the D4C station tomorrow morning, with multiple purposes:

  • Taking care of the VHF section of D4C/B installation with the help of EA8FF Marc. I will carry a 5/8 vertical antenna so that evevtually the 50.436 MHz beacon will TX in omnidirectional
  • oing some WARC QSO prior to the contest
  • Hoping for good 2m conditions and running some nice Tropo QSOs
  • Running the ARRL 10m contest: see article here: http://d4c.cc/?p=13108

p class=”text_exposed_show”>We’re looking forward to contacting your station, even with a simple vertical antenna!

73, Andrea HB9DUR

Realtime band conditions website

The purpose of this experimental Web site is to provide 24-7-365 actual (REALTIME) band condition information to CW QRPp, QRPe and CW/SSB for Contesters interested in increasing their scores.

It can also be of benefit to other Radio Amateurs to determine band conditions for Nets and casual QSO’s.
This information is NOT based on any software predictions or any kind of satellite based readings. It is based on a new Ionospheric sounding method called “HF Ionospheric Interferometry” which operates very similarly to the PolSAR system used by NASA.
