I love HF and my QTH is not that good for harbouring a lot of antennas so I can work each band. I do have a trap HF vertical but it is a pain in the … Corrosion makes this Continue reading The liquid HF vertical for 10m to 40m
I am a big fan of the 10m band. An extra receiver would be nice to listen on 10m, so I can use the TS-480HX to listen across the HF bands. But with a second receiver, you probably need an Continue reading Better DX hunting with a 14 US Dollar SDR receiver
Past months propagation improved with nice HF propagation. Those who have DX ears must have noticed that 10m long distance propagation acted in a more or less remarkable way. Fellow DX’ ers on forums reported signals with multiple echoes that Continue reading Long path propagation or short path propagation on HF?
Those who are daily active on the 12m and 10m band must have noticed that propagation was relatively good even excellent during the 3rd and 4th quarter of 2011. The bands, including 6m, were wide open for long range contacts. Continue reading Has Solar Cycle 24 finished?
Lucky me!!! No better way to test the homemade 10m Moxon antenna then with current conditions. Best propagation since 2003, definitely! I took the chance to do one on one tests, and results are a bit surprising in a positive Continue reading Nice propagation to test the Moxon antenna
I made a setup with a dipole and the 10m Moxon antenna to compare results. But for some reasons both antennas acted not normally. The Moxon had almost none front to back ratio and the dipole could not be tuned Continue reading Let’s start testing the 10m Moxon antenna, or not…
It is a long time ago since I heard W6 and W7 on 10m. Well, past few days they have been on the air every evening, and conditions became better by the day. I managed to work some guys from Continue reading Finally some good old propagation
Since a few weeks the 10m Moxon is up and running. It was quite an easy job assembling and mounting it. I have constructed it in a way that makes it very easy to assemble and disassemble it in case Continue reading Moxon up and running
Well, I got all the materials for the new 2 element Moxon, a more ridged than the previous one that was blown of the roof… This time I am using 20mm PVC tubes as spreaders. I have attached the spreaders Continue reading Working on the homemade 10m Moxon
