3635Random hour preparation...
- May 1, 2007Well, my attempt to randomly capture a 2M MS signal with my lowly 2M
vertical failed. Two Saturdays of monitoring, no signals heard or
decoded. Still have never decoded a MS FSK441 signal.
So, plan B. The 12 element 2M Yagi should be installed Friday if the
weather is good, it will be horizontally polarized. At this point, I
will probably only get it about 20 feet off the ground. For MS work,
what impact does height above ground have on QSO attempts? I'm used
to line-of-sight issues for 2M FM work, but I assume that other
factors come in to play for MS SSB work on 2M ?
Any other tips for try this Saturday with the 14 dBi gain antenna ?
