The log 6th April onwards – the end of MW season

May 20, 2014 By: admin Category: BC-stations, DX-listening

On Sunday I took off the longwire antenna from my remote Perseus. It was just in time because on Monday we had the biggest thunderstorm so far. Perseus remote worked very well with the MESTOR timer. I usually visited the station once a week to change USB harddisk but I also checked the bands in the morning almost every day. Since last August this system failed only 2 or 3 times (once because electricity went off) so it was working very well! Now I mounted a small FM yagi to the same QTH and I will record ES-condx via remote. Hopefully it works. FM+ is a bit heavy software.

The spring season after the super condx to Ecuador in the beginning of April was dissapointing. Perharps with an antenna pointed to Brasil it could have been better. Eg. I had only two short openings to Bolivia, not much more from Peru either.
