As close as we are it'll have to be 75M...possibly 40.

Let's see if anyone a little further out jumps in.

No, but QRZ morons I live for. :snicker:

Seriously, I just can't bring myself to bother with anything on 75m that's above 3800. Too much idiocy and "noise" goes on up there.

N8YX
04-28-2010, 11:38 AM
I was kinda fit-shased last evening, having taken 'DSG out for margaritas (as our designated driver) then bringing the party home and picking up where she left off. Tonight will be better for radio. I think.

KG4CGC
04-28-2010, 11:47 AM
Let's hope. Distances over 100 miles were not great to listen to. I could hear some of the big gun regulars and Doug made a good effort to pull me out of the noise. I could hear my call a couple of times but as far as communicating goes, it wasn't going to happen.

Earlier I contacted a local friend who is at about 22 miles in a straight line. He liked my audio and he was 20 over fine business. I must do antenna work this week. I think I'm dreading unmasting and remasting.

WTKX
04-28-2010, 02:38 PM
Tonight, maybe?

The storms in the pacific are snow/rain, maybe no lighting? East is clear.

We gots no spots, SF is going down... good for 75.

That it does. Big T-storms in KS/NE...you might try checking 10M and see what kind of Sporadic E is setting up as a result.

KJ3N
04-29-2010, 08:36 PM
Even with the ATT on, the noise is nearly s9.... :(

N8YX
04-29-2010, 08:47 PM
It's getting worse here. I'm thinking no low-band radidio tonight.

Got a rig parked on 28.400 in case 10M starts up suddenly.

KJ3N
04-29-2010, 08:58 PM
Even 20m is noisy....

04-29-2010, 09:07 PM
Well, stick a fork in it.... it's done. Shutting down. No radio tonight. :(

N9FE
04-30-2010, 06:45 AM
I shut it off at like 7:30 cst. The lightning was past 20 over. there calling for storms tonight too. Welcome to summer on da low bands.

I shut it off at like 7:30 cst. The lightning was past 20 over. there calling for storms tonight too. Welcome to summer on da low bands.
Start thinking in terms of sporadic E.

I keep receivers on 28.337 (our local hangout), 28.400, 29.000 (AM) and scan 29.600-29.680 (FM) with a fourth.

A CB rig in the shack also monitors 27.385 LSB - that frequency is a good general-purpose propagation indicator.

N9FE
04-30-2010, 08:10 AM
If 10 pops Fred give a heads up here. I'll switch to the scatter stick and give er a whirl.

What's open? I haven't even turned on a radio since Wednesday.

N8YX
05-08-2010, 06:22 PM
Antennas and the radios were unplugged. Supercells with VIP5 cores roaming the area tend to make one do that.

N8YX
05-08-2010, 06:23 PM

40 and 75 pretty much always are.

Yep. Been unplugged since Thursday.

N8YX
05-08-2010, 06:42 PM
FWIW, I'm going to try a different radio/antenna setup this evening. Will be using a '940 but it's the second of two in the shack. Antenna is a 6BTV.

N8YX
05-08-2010, 07:19 PM
Someone pick a frequency...

It's still early.

Yep - zero-beat with the SWBC is 7280. I heard Dave about S-8 but it's pretty congested.

KC2UGV
05-08-2010, 07:45 PM
You guys on 7280 or 7275?

N8YX
05-08-2010, 07:48 PM
You guys on 7280 or 7275?
'80 is rife with BCI and '75 is some other group. We're trying to find a clear spot. If you got something in your area which looks open, post it here and let us know.

WTKX
05-08-2010, 08:02 PM

75 is probably getting good for you folks, so maybe it's time to migrate there.

N8YX
05-09-2010, 03:54 PM
Maybe the same place (3839 or thereabouts)?

I have to pull two of my wire antennas down tomorrow afternoon pending some tree removal, so I'm stuck with using the 6BTV on HF.

KG4CGC
05-12-2010, 01:35 PM
I game for this evening if you guys want to give it a shot. Tried another mic with an electret element to get a little more punch in the voice range.
I may look for another element this afternoon specifically for vocals and change it out. This Heil I tried Monday seemed to lack what the 901 wanted although it is perfect for the TT. I think the 901 really needs the impedance to be a perfect match, hence the 901 hand mic is 500 ohms and the Heil GM5 is 1000 ohms. Although I could have added a resistor and a switch to the mic connector, I'm not trying that yet.

I believe that years ago, I changed out the element in the mic I tried last night to a full range type. I just want to give the radio what it needs but I don't want to sound tinny. The listener on the other end needs something that will not bring about listening fatigue. It is a careful balance that I wish to achieve.

WTKX
05-12-2010, 02:25 PM
I'd love to help, but so far you have not been strong enough to tell.

Isn't the mic impedance on that FT-901 more like 50K ohms? No I just checked.

Shure 444D in the low impedance? I like old Turners and Electro Voice.

But I use a Heil GM5 a lot.

KG4CGC
05-12-2010, 02:31 PM
But I use a Heil GM5 a lot.
Well you did hear that one and the TT on 40 or 20 the other night. I think it was 40? That's a prime set up and I'm just going to leave it alone.
