I went to Trehoje JO46HE which is 102 m ASL. I wanted to listen for Danish 23 cm beacons.
|My 23 cm portable rig at Trehoje JO46HE.|
The nearest beacon is OZ5SHF in JO45VX, 76 km away. The signal was stronger than I had anticipated: S9. The beacon is at 205 m ASL, and that certainly helps propagating a strong signal! You can hear my audio recording of OZ5SHF:
Beacon OZ7IGY in JO55WM is 216 km away. The signal was weak, but I could hear the PI4-tones. If I had brought my laptop, I would have been able to detect the PI4-signal using the sound card and the PI-RX program.
The beacon OZ1UHF 162 km away was very weak. I could hear it, but not read the morse code.
Next step is to become QRV on 23 cm transmit from my home QTH.
