Big different condition

Hi top bander! This morning here, big different condition compare to yesterday.

Most different, SSN is growing up to 27. Yesterday was "0". So very good low band condition. However, today is no good. very noisy on the band and DX signal is not so strong.

Some U zone was strong, but the band is very heavy QRM with one way path. So many time call to DX station. However, he still CQ test.

Last midnight, I watched TV program. That was soccer game of asian cup final. Until 3:00 oclock, I watched. It was very excited game. Finaly Japan team was win.

After watched TV program, I checked top band sistuation. however, I already wrote condition. Until 2200Z, I turn off my IC-7700. Stoped operation.

I have a slight cold this morning. I need to recharge my batteries.

Quaiet

This morning, different yesterday morning. Yesterday morning, many DX station was QRV so big pileup had on the band.
However, today just only noise. Out of JA band. VK3PA was QRV with some European stations.
In JA band, T88RX was QRV on 1824 at 1930Z. But almost JA stations QSO for him. So little bit stations only call to him.
Anyway, the band condition is down today.

Still good

This morning here, still good condition on top band. 4L5O was QRV on 1824,so many many JA station called him. However, his received system is no good or QRM or QRN. So almost one way path. Very big pile up but litlle bit return to call from 4L5O. Ofcause I didn't call him.

Other I heard RW5KW, BU2AQ, RZ4FB, IV3PRK, S52AAM, S57DX, and some HL stations. I called few stations. But tthis morning I was contacted to IV3PRK only.

I understand, condition is good however can not contact. Most important, receive and transmit system's balance.

Recently, almost no hear DX signal, but this weekend I was pleased. I wish to next weekend for 160m DX contest.

VK9X last night

Here was last night on 160m. VK9XO on 160m. Some ja called him. However no return.
I never hear his signal. There also no good condition maybe. Many many stations called. But no return. Why? Noise level is very high snd our signal very weak. It can difficult contact for each case.

However, that direction for my weak point.  When I can hear that?

VK9X is start operation

Yesterday on high band. VK9X was started of JA operaters. In this morning here. As same as 2130Z on 1819. VK9XXY was on aired that many JA station call tohim. However, a little bit return to answer.
Maybe there are many tropical noise,so difficalt copy our signal. And this time, there has not liner amp. Only bear foot operation. So Good ear has, no problem, however normal ear has, maybe difficalt copy his signal.
I have poor ear, ofcause this morning no copied. The first I wish to hear his signal.

Preselector

Today I have free time,so I adjustment for home brew preselector. It is two pole preselector. Antenna be able to select 2 antennas. Antenna 2 can use the small loop antenna. It is not enough sencivity, so antenna 2 add 2sk125 GG pre amp.
This preselector band width is about 20Khz for -6dB, If very noise condition that into this one. the noise flore to down. Very good it.

05 January, 2011

Noise level

Here at 2nd-JAN. The band was low noise level that can copy lot of DX signals.
I can QSO for DX stations that day. However, after 2nd Jan, noise level to high.
Almost DX signal under noise, I can not copy. If I can copy it, that near asian stations.
Recently, SSN was growed over 50. Normaly SSN is high level then high band is good. However, high band and low band, each bands still no good.
I wish improve the band conditon.

Now good condx

I just hear top band now. Condition is so so. Now N6TR is calling CQDX on 1831.5

On 1824.5 JD1BMH still pickup up 2. On 1822 RA0FU still on air. and other freq, some HL station is QRV.
