VK3SIX's blog

As you will see by the database VK3OT/SIX and VK5PJ have ben conducting experiments on the 6M band over 450 km from Adelaide PF95 and Hamilton QF12.
For those who dont know the path is not line of sight. it is over flat ground desert for hundreds of KM with a slight rise at each end. I am 800 feet AMSL and VK5PJ about 250 feet.
He is running 1 watt to a 9 el M2 yagi. I am listening on an identical antenna (from same batch in 1989) and using a TS690SAT as VK3OT and an FTV1000/FT1000MP with 2ppm osc as VK3SIX.
