Re: How about a FreeDv hour as well?

Hi Brian,

Was on freeDV last night and monitored for about 1 hour but heard nothing.

I think the propagation drops off about the time DV starts.

Anyway any suggestions for another night perhaps a little earlier would suit.

Copied VK3IH and VK2DUX on Feldhell last night.

I will post a few screen shots to show what I did see. I was interested in some FreeDV last night too but was unsure of the freq. , mayb...

Re: HELL on Tuesday!

Hi All,

I will try and get up this evening for the HELL show. I'll be using an ELAD on 5W and full wave loop so will be interesting.

Also often use Olivia 32/1k on 20 meters with EU and works fine even in very signal strengh.

Anyway look forward to hearing some stations tonight.

Re: Olivia on 6m

Hi Wayne, I have tried Olivia 32/1K on 6 meters with Wayne VK4WTN many times when I was living in Brisbane with great success. Anytime you want to give it a go if you think its worthwhile give me the heads-up on the Logger. You will find some 20M Olivia 32/1k on 14.1065 9 (usb) most afternoons abt 1...

Re: PS-46 PICO balloon HF payload WSPR JT9

PS-46 is on its way home again and all winds pushing it to VK.

The latest position is in the South Atlantic and was last logged by ZS6BTY

Yes well done Andy, lots of stations up and tracking.
I wonder if we will see a 2nd circumnavigation?
