Daylight Audio Clips 40 Meters ARRL DX CW

20 Feb

These clips were recorded around 2230-2315 Zulu (4:30 PM local Central time) on Saturday afternoon. Either the band is awfully good or the grid in EU is sagging badly. I was hearing EU well before twilight on the old dipole. Of the stations that are recorded here I worked all but LZ.





I had to find a audio recording device that was software driven and free with mp3 output features. Needless to say I haven’t had a chance to manage recording levels properly and I seem to need to copy at a higher frequency to record well. None of these things have been done so far. I will fiddle a little later and perhaps recording quality can improve. At any rate I wanted to capture and share some great band conditions.

Thanks for reading my Blog. Best, Chas W5PG

    Hello Chas, very nice to hear sound samples. I gives a good indication how signals came through. Unfortunately, I am ill, a virus got me down. I only let WSPR run, even PSK31 isn’t possible because of Russian PSK contest. Have a nice Sunday, 73 Paul

    Hi Chas, my daughter (11 yrs) bought red roses for me. Isn’t she lovely. But suddenly I felt much better when I checked 15 meters. I worked a few stations from the USA and Canada on 15 meter with only 5 watt QRP CW. Also 2 stations from Texas. So on 15 meter it is possible to work each other. 73 Paul
