Re: [MT63] rsgb MT63 news
- Hi Chris,
Glad to oblige!
The current list of transmissions can be found at
http://www.rsgb.org.uk/news/gb2rsnews.pdf along with a good deal of useful
The MT63 transmission schedule is subject to change only because we don't
have too many sending stations.
At the moment, the transmissions which definitely take place every Sunday on
3600.0 kHz at 2015 UK local time
1840.0 kHz at 2045 UK local time
Standard is USB, 1kHz bandwidth, long interleave, although sometimes the
transmitting station will transmit the news a second time straight
afterwards at 2kHz bandwidth.
I maintain a rota of readers specifically for the national GB2RS Newsreading
on 160m, the experimental 5MHz spot frequencies and the data transmissions.
To find out who will be transmitting each Sunday, go to:
The MT63 news script for the news transmitting stations is sent around as a
simple *.txt file each weekend, so it is just a matter of 'sending' that
file from your MT63 software.

- hi costas /steve
regarding RTTY contest i have had a good copy of mt63
news here during previous contest with 1 khz tx but 2
khz is another matter of course...
my current antenna 35 - 40 ft short for 3.600 khz BUT
it would be short for RTTY too .. will be interesting
to see the outcome .....
