Keith, G6NHU: Low power heard in Australia

Posted on March 6, 2011 by


On day #63 as I went to bed I put my station on the Weak Signal Propagation Reporter Network running just 5 watts on 28MHz. I’d jokingly said that I expected to be heard in Australia with a signal strength of +20dB. Well, it’s easy to confuse plus and minus isn’t it!

When I got up I checked the log and I saw that I’d been spotted just twice during the night by just station.

OK, it wasn’t a QSO and I didn’t hear VK6DZ but it’s nice to know that my little five watts of RF made the journey all the way down under on 10m.
