Two spots of my tiny WSPR signal were picked up by Dave (AA1A) using his special experimental call WD2XSH/17 in Marshfield, Massachusetts. He must have a good RX setup!

I'd already spotted John WG2XKA a few nights ago, and it's great to see more from him, and also great to see five spots from WE2XGR/3 (John, W1TAG) in Holden, Massachusetts.

A good night on MF, still in summertime.

MF WSPR

It was a busy night on 475kHz WSPR - many stations in Europe active and more in RX only mode. Best DX for me was again with IW4DXW - we both "exchanged" spots over a 1927km path.

My best DX in the RX direction was to get 4 seprate spots from the USA - WG2XKA - run by John WA3ETD - in Pittsford, Vermont at a distance of 4950km.

Here is a list of each station either heard by me, or who heard me, overnight last night

Return to MF

I last used MF under the old UK Special Research Permit, on 501 - 504kHz, in November 2011 after experimenting on the band since July 2007. Since that time the WRC has produced a new band worldwide at 472 - 479kHz. Not all administrations have released this new band but there are certainly more countries with access to MF now than when I was last using it.
I had a chance CW QSO on 5MHz with Chris G3XIZ, one of the MF stalwarts, earlier in the week and we discussed the idea that I might come back to MF. I got thinking about the good and interesting times I had between 2007 and 2011, with many CW contacts with Finbar GI4DPE and later EI0CF, and the interesting one-way tests between Shetland and Finland with Paul-Henrik OH1LSQ. He would now have access to MF and could now transmit as well as receive, so now we'd be able to have in-band two-way QSOs instead of cross-band or one-way (report by email) tests.
I dragged my MF transmitter from under the stairs and set about testing it and retuning the PA stage from 501 to 472kHz. It was soon producing 100W into test load. 


Next I retrieved the MF ATU (basically a tapped loading coil and an impedance matching transformer) and put it at the feedpoint of my current HF inverted-L. It didn't take long to tune & match the antenna - although it was much shorter, electrically, than the previous MF antenna - needing an extra 200uH of inductance to get it to resonance. After a day of testing I replaced the antenna with a new inverted-L, 11m high with a 25m long top-loading section. This initially resonated at 360kHz with the same tuner settings, a big increase in capacitance due to the extra top-loading. Removing the additional inductor and retuning got me a good match - the matching transformer ratio showed an overall resistance (mainly due to ground losses) of around 35 ohms. This is the same figure as when last used on MF, so the earthing system seems to be intact! 12.5W from the transmitter produced an approximate antenna RF current of 0.6A, which also implies a resistance of 35 ohms.
An approximate calculation, using Rik's excellent LF antenna Guide as reference, shows the expected Radiation Resistance to be 0.3 ohms
For 100W TX power I'd expect 1.7A of RF, and 867mW EMRP. This is an ERP of 1.5W and an EIRP of 2.6W. The UK limit is 5W EIRP. I have some way to go to reach the EIRP limit!
A couple of nights using WSPR, to give it a test... here's last nights "best DX" :

I've set up a "grabber" using my Perseus SDR which can cover the full 7kHz of the new band. To improve the resolution of the images I've split the band into two sections. The grabber is here:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3551430/gm4slv_630m.html

Next I plan some antenna improvements. I'm limited to the height I can raise the vertical section of the antenna, but I can probably add more top loading, and hopefully improve the ground system to reduce the loss resistance. Reducing ground losses leads to an increase in RF current flow in the antenna, and as radiated power is proportional to the square of the antenna current, every extra ohm shaved from the ground loss increases the ERP. Dropping to a ground loss of 30 ohms would improve the E(I)RP by around 0.6dB. Adding more top loading would improve the current flow, increasing the radiation resistance and also reduce the system losses by reducing the losses in the ATU (as the antenna would need less inductance to bring it to resonance) and this would also add to the ERP. I'm wary about adding too much wire, as I know from previous experience what a Shetland winter storm can do to wires hanging in the air...
