Hi Fellow contesters,
I downloaded the YTAD program (by n6bv) from the
arrl bbs - it is kinda neat. So much so that I went
out last night and bought a few topo maps.
I was wondering - I looked in the ON4UN Low band DXing book
for conductivities and dielectric constants. This is the
only book I have that had anything in it about this. (page 5-4)
Can someone tell me how the two numbers relate to how
good the soil is?
surface type dielectric constant Conductivity(mS/m)
Fresh water 80 1.0
Salt water 81 5000.0
Pastoral (dallas) 20 30.0
The station that I operate from is on the edge of a large
lake - and the profile in about 2/3 rds of the directions
is very easy to get off the map. (can you say FLAT)
