The First Snow - 2012

This is the First Snow of the year has just started, it is a good time to be inside with Ham Radio, and having fun coding my Propeller Beacon (see previous posts).

The First Snow - 2012
The photo was taken from my Loft (shack) window, with the 450 ohm Ladder Line in the foreground. The Ladder Line feeds a Off Center Fed (OCF) Dipole 90 feet above ground. So far the 30m 62.5mW Beacon and Antenna have received good reports from many remote locations. The beacon is transmitting both QRSS and OPERA on a 10 minute sync cycle.

A nice map of Generic OPERA reports are available at
