Drieborg 15-05-2015

In the evening time there was some small tropo towards the north from me.
In a attempt to catch some new stations on DAB+ I found four new channels never seen before.

It was 9C from the North of Germany, 12B and 12D from Norway and 13B from Danmark.

Drieborg 15 mei 2015

This is my Es log from 15 may, lots of stations fading in and out on the same frequency almost the whole day. So it was very difficult to ID a lot of them. But it was great fun so early in the saison to see such a great and long opening. 744 87.50 I Radio Subasio Sigillo/Monte Columeo (Monte Cucco) ...

A nice opening towards CZE and SVK, but only one station to hear from this country. Loads of Germans also and they where load! So maybe thats why the CZE and SVK could not be heard. 1733 95.60 CZE Vltava Plzen 541 1832 100.10 CZE Dvojka Pardubice 701 1836 103.20 CZE Dvojka Votice 655 1842 91.40 CZE ...

Re: DAB Yagi

Thanks Brian to share your update also on Skywaves. Because I just start to build the Körner19.3 and have some material left I also try to build your yagi. Also because the freq is much wider then my DL6WU. Thanks for the information about the mounts for the elements. Already send Sven a mail to ord...

Re: 10 elm DL6WU DAB antenna

Thanks again for the advice Brian. But as a hamradio operator you also know you have lots of ideas and more antennas then towers. I have some limited space overhere, and erected alreeady 2 small towers and some poles around the house. Will see what I can do to bring the DAB not to close to the Körne...

When I cam home this afternoon from work there was a small TR (?) opening going on towards CZE. If you look at Hepburn around that time there was no sign of a TR path. Could hear only the stations below in the log and already most of that stations had deep qsb, but wqith the help from FMList and the...

Re: 10 elm DL6WU DAB antenna

Brian thanks very much to model this antenne also. It looks like it does a good job. I can say also in practice it is working well. What you see in the pictures is how I tested the antenna if it is working. Actually the pipe where I mounted the antenna is from plastic. Next week I will mount the ant...

10 elm DL6WU DAB antenna

To build your own DAB+ antenne is not so difficult. From Rob PE1ITR I got a design for a 10 elements DAB antenna with a boom almost 3 meter long. For the boom I used the 20x20 mm Alu as in the Körner 15.12, the diameter for the elements are 10mm so I could use again the Nuxcom element holder. Drill ...

A very good day for DXing and a lot of new stations and offcourse a lot of old ones. This was a superb day for watching how my new Körner antenna was working, and must say it is perfect. I am very happy I build this antenna at least because it brings in a lot of new fun into listening to the radio! ...

Last two evenings I could hear some stations that where not in my log before (SR P1 Hörby I can hear every day). Some nice ones between 500 - 600 kilometer away. Nice distance and some stations did it via TR scatter. But it is very nice nice to hear stations pop up out of the noise! 21-10: 1842 90.1...
