a good time would be 05.00 UTC on Saturday this week (with 7 hours
difference to UTC at your location it would be 22.00 local time on
Friday evening but I am not sure if that assumption is correct) to
benefit from the sunrise peak in Germany at the end. If we are not
successful on Saturday I suggest to repeat the test on 05.00 UTC on
Sunday. Frequency should be 1838 khz + 500 Hz (USB), starting with
PSK31 for 15 min, then continue in DominoEx4 and then in Olivia (15
I will use Multipsk for all three modes, i.e. if you would use
Multipsk as well, then I suggest the following schedule:
Start in PSKAM10 which is excellent for very weak signals (min. S/N -
19.5 db) at 05.00 UTC, then try PSK31 starting at 05.15 UTC, then
DominoEx4 at 05.30 UTC and after this Olivia at 05.45 UTC.
With many trees removed which have been close to the antenna last
year it should work out a little bit better. The general landscape
(hilly, some woods close by, only modest ground), however, is still
the same ...
Please confirm one of the two alternatives if you could be available.
If so we have to agree who should start at 05.00, 05.15, 05.30 and
05.45 UTC. The station starting at those defined times should
transmit for one minute, then listen for one minute, then
transmitting again for one minute etc. until the mode change after 15
minutes. If we have a successfull qso, i.e. if we can copy each
other, we can determine what to do next during the qso.
This is much more difficult than a qso in CW, of course, but the
human ears require less S/N if you read through Patrick's help file
with info about the different modes.
I will also be available in the www.on4kst.com lowband chat during
73 and see you during the weekend!
P.S.: Everybody else is of course invited to listen or to

when, what frequency etc. and I will attempt to be there. I have re-

PSK63, Olivia, MFSK. I also run Alpha power on all modes if that

sunset today is at 01:06z and my sunrise is at 14:46. My sunset or
maybe even up to about 06:00 might be ok for a try. Let me know your
wishes and I will try to meet you. 73 and gl, Bill Dawson W7TVF
