Re: 13cms beacons

Many thanks to those of you who pointed out the mode is PI4. Have downloaded the decoder and will go back and try again once the WX improves.

Andy: which French beacons run ISCAT? Went through the listings on Beaconspot on 13cms but could not find them.

Hello Ed

 

Martlesham runs PI4 on 13cms. That’s why you had no decodes on WSJT !Details are on Beaconspot.

Spent an hour this afternoon on a high spot in West Dorset (IO80RQ44) checking out the 13cms gear and listening to various beacons. As expected SCS was very strong, FNM was a weak but consistent signal. However, on 2320.830 there was a very weak beacon which could have been MHZ but was never strong enough to copy the CW. On the JT modes I could see 4 tones on a 15 second sequence but none of the modes in WSPRX would give a decode. Can anyone tell me what the MHZ modulation sequence is?

 

As a general comment, it would be very useful if the beacon databases included the modulation details for the microwave beacons.
