- Hi again,
a side issue to the recent W1AW MFSK16 tests, is their choice of
frequency for 10m. Why use 28130? This is a traditional MT63
frequency. In fact I would have thought it better to use their normal
digital broadcast freqs of 14095 and 28095 etc.
I would strongly oppose W1AW making regular use of 28130 for
further tests or regular bulletins broadcasts. I don't know whether it
was a co-incidence, but later the same day of the W1AW tests, at
around 2215UTC I heard weak MFSK16 signals before, sometimes
during and after the MT63 contact I had with N4WI on 28130 (dial).
Maybe the operators of these stations thought that as W1AW was
now using the freq for MFSK16, that it was the best freq to use.
Time will tell I guess.
