The wind season is finishing, and now looks a good time to se new challenges. After a lot of years receving weak signals, looks that is a good time to try to transmit to the air my own signals. One of the most nice challenges for a amateur radio is bounce his signals to the moon, and do it in he microwaves segment looks more cool 😉
Before to transmit something, I’m looking if I can receive signals. My first attempt has been in 1296MHz. I was build a feedhorn for with a bit of junk, use a LNA used before and a AOR AR5000 receiver with the WSJT software.
The result was amazing, receiving nice signals. I was receive the big gun HB9Q with a very loud signal, audible in the receiver speaker!
After some hours finally I was copy this stations:
-10dB HB9Q-14dB I1NDP-18dB UA4HTS-22dB YL2GD-20dB DF3RU-22dB YL2GD-18dB W1AW
Now looks that will start to build a more efficient feedhorn and build the transmission side.
