  DX Band Spotting / Open Band Conditions
Posted by: ZS6DEZ - 14-07-2017, 07:49 PM - Forum: KARTS General - No Replies

For those interested in DX contacts, another WSPR beacon has been on the air for two weeks. 

The beacon is set for TX on 20M band and it has a TX power of 0.5W.

It is the beacon of ZS6CNP (Connel) which is based on the use of a QRP-Lab Arduino WSPR Shield. 

Unlike other WSPR units, this shield requires an Arduino UNO processor unit plus the writing of the necessarily code to make it functional. 

Good fun was had with this project. 

Gained knowledge included some of the practical / hardware aspects of Amateur Radio. RAE classes do lack discussions on practical / hardware aspects and, if included, could provide some interesting information for newbies.   

To view the reported spots, do visit  http://wsprnet.org/drupal/wsprnet/spots  Select ZS6CNP callsign as part of the search of the database.

For those interested, more detail is available on my blog website. 

Spots from USA, Australia and Europe have been reported so band conditions are not as bad as what is currently being said.

The RAE was held on Saturday morning at Impala.
17 students sat for the exam, Hannes was the chief invigilator, with Etienne ZS6ET assisting.Trevor and Barry also assisted in the prep work for the exam, going through all the required documentation prior to the exam starting.

RAE Manager Noel ZR6DX paid us a visit, and collected the examination papers directly after the exam was finished.
 
   

A big thank you to Hannes and his RAE tutoring team, for running the RAE Course for us, and good luck to those that wrote, we hope to hear you on the air real soon Smile

Some feedback on the ZS3 Sprint, this afternoon.

We took part as the club station ZS6KTS.
8 club members attended, Mike ZS6AI manned the radio, making 16 contacts in the 1 hour contest.
Stephen manned the pc, logging the contacts for Mike.
Johan ZS6NJJ took some photo's and video clips and uploaded the live streams to our facebook page, for those not yet on Face Book, visit this link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1670931846511449/
John and Mary attended as well as Martin, Barry and OM Dries ZS6NX.
While we were contesting, members discussed various things in the background and outside in the warm afternoon sunshine, Mary treated some members to some tea Wink
All in all we had a very nice time.
I have submitted our log already.
