Chinese RF parts

G3RIR <g3rir@...>
 

I have just received some cables I specially ordered from rfsupplier_com in
China. The quality looks excellent and the price was very good and the
delivery from order was just one week.

I needed N male to N-female bulkhead using semi-rigid for my 23cm amp input
which they made up to order. I found trying to find the matching cable and
connectors too difficult on the Farnell site so I tried an e-bay search and
came up with rfsupplier_com on e-bay. I paid by paypal.

Does anyone have any experience as to the real quality of their products?

Would someone like to test one of the cables on some proper test equipment?
All I can do is measure the loss using a Bird and as they are only 30cm long
there won't be much loss anyway, I suppose.

Neil, G3RIR

July RSGB Low Bands UK Activity Contest - and other ramblings

g4bao
 

Condx seemed average, but I got on for the last hour and managed the following

23cms
GM4CXM IO75tw 505km CW
DF9IC JN48iw 647km CW
GW8ASD IO83lb 236km SSB
M0GHZ IO81vk 189km SSB
G8OHM IO92aj 147km SSB

I had two failed attempts on 9cms with DF9IC and PA0EZ

I would echo Ray's earlier comments about the CW/JT4 debate in that we worked easily on CW in a fraction of the time that we would with JT4, and at quite low levels, and deep QSB. Ray and I rarely fail in our 23cms QSOs, and it's the same with Henning DF9IC. Don't get me wrong, I'm a big supporter of JT modes for the "telegrapically challenged" :-) but call me an oldie if you wish, I still get a buzz out of turning those dots and dashes in to information in my head!

Just a pity I haven't got as effective a station and particularly, site, on 3cms, but the price of 10W PA devices for 3cms makes my toes turn up!! If I could find a surplus source of X band GasFets like the one I had for 23cm LDMOS devices, (dream on!) I'd design a cheap PA kit for 3cms as well.

Anyone out there found a reel of 10W X band Fets in a skip recently?

OK, enough rambling, off to service GB3CAM...

The lesson learnt was dont use the "internet time" setting option in windows xp.

This morning I compared the result of using the windows XP internet method to set the computer, with the z3801 digital clock and found a 2+ second difference. Listening to WWV on 10MHz on the FT817 same difference. So I installed my NMEATIME program (as i paid for a copy many years ago I use this not Dimension4) and now the computer, z3801 clock and wwv all now agree within measurement error

Can I remind those of you using JT modes that you need to ensure your timing is spot on. I can recommend Dimension4 as a pretty good free timing source for your PC.

Rain Scatter on 10GHz – a (slightly) different approach!

Graham - G4FSG
 

A number of you are aware that I have a VERY poor take off on 3 and 6cm. The 60cm dish is about 8m agl with many trees up to about 20m at varying but fairly close distances. There are a few gaps, one of which is on a bearing of 122° but only +/- 2° at most. The gap is a result of vandals burning down the school cricket pavilion on the adjacent field several years ago on New Years Eve taking the trees with it!!!

 

Today I tried a different approach to the RS that was about. I simply left the dish pointed at the gap and tracked the rain cells crossing France and Belgium on http://home.hccnet.nl/uffe.noucha/weurope.htm . When they were roughly in the right place I monitored from my study using the SDR remotely from the shack with SDRxxServer. Once I could see LX1DB/B coming up then off I went to the shack. Using this technique I worked F6DKW (JN18), F1NXP/P (JN29) and DJ5BV (JO30) at 375, 376 and 434km. All three were new squares and DJ was a new DXCC making the total 10 squares and 5 countries. All were good strength – two on SSB and one on CW. The spread on the SSB was significant making copy extremely difficult.

 

All of this should be put into context – Simon, G3LQR, is only about 15km away and worked DL7QY (JN59) and DK5YA (JN49) at 59S but was using a different rain cell and I could hear absolutely nothing of either of them!

 

Moral of the story – if you have a poor location then work out where the gaps are and point there, study the weather maps and be patient……..

AS on G0GHK/B signals

Barry Chambers
 

Dear All

I've seen several instances of aircraft scatter on G0GHK/B from Hemswell
(IO93QJ94).See attached .jpg. The effect lasted several 10's of seconds.
Distance is only about 25km and bearing from Hemswell to Finningley is 318
degs. I've tried monitoring the beacon from several sites around Sheffield but
haven't seen any AS yet - the geometry isn't very auspicious, but I'll keep at
it!

I've also monitored G0GHK/B's keying characteristics. They are very repeatable
but I haven't seen the phenomena that Dave reports.
73

Barry, G8AGN




Quoting bernie <bernie@...>:

Dave,

I've cc'd this to Barry also, to whom I would add that Dave is 45km and
approximately 255 degrees from G0GHK/B.

This sort of thing is what makes the band for me...

Bernie

Just had a strange effect. Came back to the radio and wasn't hearing
G0GHK/B so I tuned a bit and found it again, but the drift was very
much faster! First it went rapidly down in frequency and then it
went rapidly up in frequency, so that I had to tune HF quite quickly,
then back LF until it disappeared at about 15:12UTC and I can't find
it again now.
Found it again 0n 10368.728 (as shown on my radio) and the signals are
going HF again at the moment, but not quite as fast as before.

(few minutes later)
Now showing 733.9 and the signal appears to be drifting LF more slowly
than before. Am recording the audio again.

On the graph, when the signal gets to about 500Hz I retune to get the
signal back to about 700 or 800Hz again so that I can record the audio
and see the signal drifting down.

I guess it's due to propagation, but I wonder what sort?

Hello folks...

In the absence of G3XDY who is away on holiday this week, I'm
collating the activity list for this coming Sunday's contest. Please
let me have your intentions in the following format and I'll put out a
final list late on Friday, both on the reflector and also directly to
some of you:

----------------------------------------------------------
G3PHO/P: Matchmoor Lane Winter Hill, IO83RO
0900 UTC-1800 UTC weather permitting

10GHz: 5W/1.2m dish
5.7GHz: 12W/1.2m dish
24GHz: Not taking it. Can't manage 3 bands solo!
Talkback: Preferred: 144.175MHz ssb
50W/9el yagi
Alternative: KST via 3G
----------------------------------------------------------

You may also be aware that BATC have organised their West Coast ATV
Marathon activity day and contest for the same period. Details of this
event have been posted in recent Scatterpoints, the most recent of
which is the June 2009 issue.

Please try to support this initiative as best you can by either:

(1) Getting on 23cm ATV and/or 10GHz ATV from a suitable location ...
OR
(2) going out to a narrowbander's location and filming him ...
OR
(3) watching the live streaming at www.batc.tv, choosing LIVE EVENTS
from the menu (if you are a narrowbander please remember to also
come on the air to give the portables some points!)

Most of the ATV activity is centred around NE Anglesey where there
will be a powerful ATV repeater set up for the day and also from
Winter Hill where G3SMU will be organising the local lads from his
home location just below Matchmoor Lane. There will also be /P ATV
people on Matchmoor Lane. Hopefully, one might come over to my station
and do some outside broadcasting of what narrowband microwaving is all
about:-) A third ATV node is that of GW3ZME/P who will be active from
Cyrn Du, IO83DF08, NGR SH836733, a few miles SSE of Llandudno.

Hope to both hear and SEE you on Sunday!

More JT4 off the moon Thanks for all that high efficiency reflector junk left up there by the landings!

SAM JEWELL
 

Folks,
A follow up to yesterday's JT4 tests with WW2R, off the moon, on 23cm

System here up to 200W and 2.3 meter dish. Mostly around 150W output for JT modes

System at WW2R. Remote operated up to 400W and 3.0 m dish. Mostly operated around 200W output for JT modes


We resolved the timing issue between us. It wasn't that which prevented decodes on JT4G yesterday.

Still no decodes on JT4G today. Path degradation at its lowest today according to Moonsked. Dave's signal very visible on SpecJT even at 200W output.
CW would have been difficult (for me at least)

Changing to JT65C decodes were close to 100%. A full QSO with lots of short random messages very successful.

We then changed to JT4E. This time it worked almost 100%. Full QSO on JT4E

Initial Conclusions
The new JT4G decoder doesn't seem to be extending the detection threshold to -23dB for 23cm EME. Since our best reports were about -17 and averaging -20dB for this part of the session it is perhaps not surprising JT4G didn't supply any decodes (either direction).

JT4E extends the detector to about -19dB. This seems to have been confirmed by the success on this mode today.

Maybe, although we don't see the spread so much on SpecJT, the JT4G (and other 4 modes) were actually spread more than is visible?
Maybe the problem is the doppler on the signal? The QSO took place about one hour after transit here. My doppler would have been close to maximum. Although the spreading may have been low, it was almost impossible with the TS2KX RIT to keep the traces vertical. The doppler would have 'spread' the energy, in one over, to maybe as much as 50Hz. I haven't calculated the doppler at transit plus 1 hour yet.

So, most interesting. When Skype (used to co-ord our activity) dropped out at Dave's end JT4E provided the only reliable link between us so lots of short messages carried without error!

Clearly, 23cm digital modes EME is quite viable between small backyard dishes of 2.3m and 3m diameter with modern low noise preamps and around 150 to 200W RF (in the shack)! At low degradation times of the month even CW will work well between these size dishes and system parameters.

Came on to try and support Peter's effort but guess he had some generator problems?
Used the time waiting to good effect to address a question of RTTY activity and decided to give the mode a try on 23cm for the first time.
Russ G4PBP and myself set up a schedule. Russ started with a long string of RY's that enabled me to pan the signal and line it up on the MMTTY decode markers but my initial impression of the received audio (horrendous flutter) was to consider this wasn't going to work.
Initially just got jibberish on the screen, Russ's suggestion to try hitting the reverse control sorted that problem. I noted there is also an ability to take account of fluttery signals so that was pressed into service as well. The end result was a remarkably solid contact. We've agreed to give SSTV a try next time!
I'd be interested to see how RTTY or FSK441 works with a contact dependent on aircraft reflection, using timed periods each way. 
Taking on board the conclusions some of you have reached so far on JT4, my own opinion is that it will be of greatest benefit to those for whom CW is not a mode of operation, in particular if using lower power levels and not being aircraft reflection dependant.
Without exception, all my JT4G contacts and failed contacts could have been completed easily on SSB or CW and in the case of the failed attempt with Chris GW4DGU, we could have had several contacts.

New 13cm Personal Beacon

Ray <gm4cxm@...>
 

QSP from Ian GM0UHC

Hi All,

I have just installed a 13cm personal beacon.
Frequency is 2319.995+/-5KHz until it stabilises.
Power into feed (6m of FSJ4-50B) . . . ~3W
Antenna . . . JBeam Type 7362, horizontal polarisation, 60 degrees
beamwidth.
Beam Heading . . . 45 degrees . . . aiming at Forth Bridges.
Location . . . IO85FW.

Purpose . . . to 'squirt' a signal in the general direction of LA/SM/OZ whilst at the same time, exploring the scattering from the bridge metalwork. This has proved extremely effective on 23cm and 9cm.

Signal reports obviously welcome, especially from stations West of
IO85FW who are recommended to point at the Forth Bridges . . .
obviously.

Hi,
Joe, EI3IX is now opperational on 10Ghz. We had a short QSO in IO53KU yesterday, 19th July. Only a short distance of a few miles, signal levels of 59++ were exchanged. John EI7FAB hopes to have his kit opperational within the next week also.
