Some may have noticed an absence of postings over the last few months. There has not been much to report – the LF/MF reception is as expected, the antenna/receiver/decoder system has been functioning well, and I’ve made no changes to the configuration. I have been waiting for the higher bands to show some lease of life, which seems to have occurred today.
Apart from the local beacon GB3XMB – which is received by ground-wave – the CW beacon segment of 10m has been mostly silent at G0LUJ since the small seasonal Christmas enhancement in 2018.
Today, a number of European beacons were decoded over a long period. Consequently, I will shortly reactivate my KiwiSDR 10m beacon monitor page.
