VK0 - Antartica - 04.10.12

N3DB Wrote: "Hello All,
I think everything is working here, finally.  Those for whom I lost email addresses I scavenged off of Craig’s replies in getting this thing on the way.  So: VK0RTM/b at 50.300 should be at Baltimore / Washington International Airport this evening & in Australia in 3 to 4 days. Tracking number is DHL# 71 6326 1674
he beacon has no soft-key installed.  Suffice to say I tried for hours to get it working with it installed, but something was obviously wrong even though the components were brand new & tested OK on my Fluke R & LC meters…  This doesn’t mean its unclean signal-wise, just that any nearby op is going to hear the clicks unless its powered off.
Doesn’t seem to have any issue with being at 50.300 after running it for a while into a dummy load.  Fan is included but not attached, just in case.  HO Loop is in the box- I cut it to fit.  Made sense to do it that way & I have boxes of stainless hardware for my M2 6 meter yagis as well as many yards of “extra” stiffening rod, so piece of cake to put back together.  Despite my drill press I did bugger the holes on one side of each piece (Murphy [or 12 hours w/ 3 kids?]) but managed a good one despite the mess. The screw-ups (pun sort of intended) can be covered w/ coax seal to prevent too much water intrusion.  Doubt the bolts will matter much in the radiated pattern.  Worked OK for 8R1DB/b at least.
Extra everything included, if I had it here.  Need to get more of the old-style coax-seal, as I had none left to send, even out of my own inventory.  Think it all wound up in Senegal last spring…   I also converted a PC PS from VE3IKV for it & that’s also in the box- I need to buy more binding posts, couldn’t find any Project ones so used a couple of ceramic industrial heater insulators I had been squirreling away for an amp project... will buy more soon.  I tried the beacon out using the PC supply & all was fine, but I did notice it was only putting out 11.6 VDC… maybe under load is does more?  Either way its fit for 230VAC primary, and I figure at 50 Hz it will easily make nominal 12.6 VDC, so long as a regulator isn’t messed up.  Finally, found what must be the last stock Maxar molex I have, & used the last inline fuse for it.  More need to be ordered.
Now its up to DHL & Craig.  Here’s to hoping you all get a chance to hear it (or better yet work Craig et. Al.).  For those of us “up over” there’s still hope I suppose- as I recall CT1DYX worked Antarctica one evening during cycle 23.

73 All, Dave N3DB [SOURCE: N3DB vai VK6KXW, Pierre]

ZL9 - Campbell Is - 04.10.12

(Update/Press Release edited). The following was received from Gene/K5GS and the ZL9HR team [edited]: "Thanks for your continued interest in ZL9HR Campbell Island DX-pedition.
We're making great progress during the planning and preparation phases.
The Hellenic Amateur Radio Association of Australia members and the local ham community have pitched in to make this DX-pedition a reality.
Our current status on 6 Meters: We received approval for use of 50-51 MHz. Some areas in New Zealand use 50 MHz for television transmission; therefore it is not an Amateur allocation. Since Campbell Island is uninhabited we received a waiver from the NZ authorities to use those frequencies.
73, Gene K5GS and the ZL9HR team" http://www.campbell2012.com
