QRSS reception by ON5SL in Belgium

QRSS reception by ON5SL in Belgium

 

I received a reception report today via the KnightsQRSS e-mail list.  Pierre, ON5SL, received my QRSS signal last night in Belgium along with the signals from WB3ANQ and W4HBK, as shown above.  My signal is running QRSS3, that is a 3 second dit, and is the bottom trace.

My set-up was the homebrew transmitter putting out 160mW into the homebrew Z-match and an 88′ doublet (again homebrew).  Helping match the short coax feed to the outside of the house to the doublet’s ladderline is an Elecraft BL2 balun.

Thanks goes to Pierre for the reception report.  This is not the first time he has sent reception report, he sent me one in April and also one in March 2009. I am sure I speak for all who run such beacons that we all welcome and appreciate reception reports of our signals.
