International Beacon Reception at VK1DI

Reception of the IARU/NCDXF International Beacon Project beacons.

Location: Canberra, ACT, AUSTRALIA. Grid QF44ms
Latitude: 35 deg 15 min S, Longitude: 149 deg 3 min E.

The receiver is a Kenwood TS-480SAT

The antenna for 14-24 Mhz is a 80/40/20m trapped dipole. Despite non resonance works well receiving most bands... The antenna for 10m is a 5 element yagi 8 metres high. Usually leave pointed North towards Japan.

Radio is connected to a Compaq Laptop running Faros. Data is uploaded using Fling File Transfer every 15 minutes. I leave the program running during the day, however as this is also my operating radio it can be down at times...

This web page is based on these simple instructions.
