Re: Was it just here?

Peter - That is exellent reception. I got a great looking carrier for WFED, but the audio was nowhere near as good as yours. I fear local noise is the problem. Thanks Simon. The irony is I have a lot of noise but the rotating ferrite rod on the top of the 750 is very good at nulling noise. That was...

Re: Perseids 2017

Thanks Peter ! H or V polar ? This will be my first real MS test in a quiet FM area. BTW, I couldn't get the Virgo java applet to work :-( Hello Patrick, Difficult to advise without knowing all of the pararmeters. MS signals are received with the same pol as the original signal, unlike Es which are...

What kind of antenna would you recommand ? Is a dipole OK or would a 5 elts yagi be significantly better for this specific task ? What about polarisation ?
I'm planning a /P operation in a quiet area.
Hello Patrick I prefer dipoles for MS.

Hello Peter, in which direction you direct your antenna for Perseids?
Hello Franco,

They move around the sky. There is the virgo java applet which shows this info.

Perseids 2017

The peak is due tomorrow Saturday 12th August at 19:00 UTC

The radiant is circumpolar in the Northern Hemisphere and therefore does not set. There should be good MS activity for about 2-3 days.

Re: Es > Israel

My thanks go to John for this reception as he gave me a call waking me up to tell me there's an opening just starting as Sunday is a lie in morning. Incidentally back in the 80s a group us TV DXers would give each other two rings to alert for DX and it worked providing we were near the phone when i...
