|G3ZJO (79km) non-decoding 2m WSPR signals with lots of aircraft Doppler.|
20 Aug 2014
As I knew G3ZJO and G0LRD were both active on 2m WSPR this morning, I ventured onto 144.492MHz USB dial on 2m. I was immediately rewarded with a spot of G3ZJO (79km). During the morning G0LRD (25km) has spotted me multiple times and I have spotted Eddie, G3ZJO, three times now. Interestingly, Eddies signal was accompanied by up to 6 aircraft Doppler shifted signals. His signal decoded far fewer times than he was visible.
In the UK and Europe 144.492MHz USB dial is the frequency of choice, NOT the frequency recommended. I believe some in Europe have birdie problems on the recommended frequency.
