Tom, could you forward this message to the vhfContest reflector?
It did not go for me..
I ran skeds with Dick K0MQS in en31on 144, almost dayly for many years..
We used ssb and cw and saw ms, tropo, e-skip, and ion-scatter. It took some
time to understan ion-scatter..
Time of day modes did change.
The following equipment was used: K0MQS, 4X 2M5WLS, AT 150 FT,SSB PREAMP,
K8TQK 2x 2M5WLS AT 80 FT, AMSL IS 1320 FT., SSB PREAMP, 750 WTTS.
ION-scatter was not there every day, but when the other modes were not, we
could copy on ion-scatter..
Ion-scatter may have been covered up with the other modes.
Many days we had 2 or 3 modes going on over a 2 hour or more period of time.
We ran with no elevation.
This is what Dick and I foundrunning these skeds..
BOB K8TQK EM89JE..
