Some overnight spots…

February 22, 2009 | Amateur Radio | By: Mark VandeWettering

Okay, this is getting kind of repetitive, so I’ll try to reduce this to its bare minimum. Got quie a few WSPR spots from VK6DI overnight.

Fairly weak, my 2w was barely getting in. Oddly, I saw no trace of VK6DI until 12:55 or so UTC, where he came in pretty nicely.

I also had VK2ZAY in there a bit (he seems a bit easier to get than VK6DI). I’m wondering if simultaneous reception of both of these VK hams is more rare than you would think: I’ve only seen it once. Last night, VK2ZAY was fading as VK6DI began to climb up. Of the two VK2ZAY appears easier, indeed, Alan, VA3STL, reported that he had seen VK2ZAY overnight. I also had an interesting spot of W1BW’s flying W beacon in some early morning propagation. As WADJJ and WA0UWH are coming in this morning, I got this screen grab right around 14:55 UTC:

Addendum:: Chris, WB5FKC captured this screen which he sent me. It shows my Hellschreiber beacon, W1BW’s flying W, and I think Vern, VE1VDM’s beacon at the bottom.
