Beacon monitoring is performed at my QTH in Moorebank NSW, Sydney Australia.“Sorry – Beacon Monitoring will be back in the next couple of days”
I recently got back into amateur radio after a very long absence and found the lack of reported conditions quite alarming though the ideal thing to do is monitor the beacons via the IBPM program.
- Kenwood TS430s transceiver
- 20M halfwave endfed vertical (VK2PRC needs to be mentioned here.
Check out his fantastic Vertical 20M halfwave antenna)
- Desktop PC using the internal Soundcard on the mainboard.
- Faros software 1.4 on Win10 x64 Faros software can be found here. Happy to help anyone that wants to set it up
I built the antenna on the back of vk2prc’s instructions and it works quite well. I am still experimenting with it though alongside the faros app.
The statistics are mostly 24/7 unless I am using the radio at the time. The plan is to move towards an SDRplay alongside another halfwave endfed 20M vertical
In Build status but its as pretty as its going to get. Any feedback appreciated via either QRZ, social media or the contact page.
