The KH6HME/B 70 cm beacon is just starting to become audible in CN75xa. Using 432.078.54 (CW) puts the chirpy beacon at 1150 Hz on the waterfall.

The 2m beacon has taken some deep fades, but is now audible again. Interestingly, the two beacons fade and peak at different times.

I should have added the word aloft to the sentence about warm dry air. It's that warm dry air on top of the (cold & moist) marine air that makes this ducting possible. The temperature below is largely determined by the sea surface temperature. Relative humidity is close to 100%. I note that as you go south (Vandenberg and San Diego) that the air on top is more moist than at Oakland.
Caveat--conclusions are based on coastal land stations. Conditions may be much more favorable for ducting hundreds of km off the coast.

Note that the warm dry air pattern that was south of us (SF) has moved north. Also note that the inversion height at the coast drops with decreasing latitude.
Coastal Marine traffic. I noted one ship almost to 130deg W long. While less than 1/4 the way to Hawaii, it would be nice if some of these ships could/would carry radio amateurs interested in VHF. There's a lot of wet grid squares out there that could be worked.

Hi Jerry. Yes I know about the Hepburn pages, tks.
So far not such strong opening here. Waiting for it.
I know it's a report page, so i don't want to overload it.
But we follow your activity. GL on 10Ghz attempt!

I am using an M-squared 18XXX at forty feet with a clear shot to the West and ocean. 200 watts on SSB.
My best contact was with my handheld radio running one watt and a whip antenna on FM through a repeater in Hawaii, 2500 miles each way.
When the duct is working, it doesn't take much power.
Paul in Hawaii now has a 10GHz radio and our goal is to work him on that band.
Do you have the website for the Hepburn tropo forcasts?

Hi, I'm FR5DN Phil. We are working also on tropoducting on our area. I simply would like to know what is your setup on 2m please, just to compare things from here? Here i currently use a single 17el F9FT with 140w max, and usually qso ZS with 70w most of the time. The path is also sea path here. Max distance we worked is some 3205km.
Tropoducting is really exciting... Enjoy.

At 0127Z the 144.170 MHz beacon was 569 here at 1740\' elevation. Temperature is 73 deg F, RH = 50%.
OAKland 00Z sounding indicates base of 610m,
Hilo 00Z sounding indicates base of 1843m, where base is defined as the lowest height of the greatest gradient of Temperature and Dew Point.
Interestingly, Lihue sounding does not indicate sufficient gradients for ducting. Neither does San Diego. Vandenberg is iffy.

22:10p PST - K6QXY, Robert, all I see is fog since it rolled back in about 6:00pm tonight and the temp dropped 10 degrees. It's interesting to note how much stronger you hear Pauls beacons at your 2000ft elevation even though you're noticeably further inland than me at my 225ft elevation buried here in the city. Can you take a picture of the "visible duct" and email it. I'd like to see what it looks like.

07/24/06 19:15:28 - Message #826

18:10 PST - First I think the time stamp on this logging program seems to be off 1-2 hours?

Second, it appears the beacon signals are all fading into the sunset right now. Signals for 144, 432 and 1296 started getting weaker around 15:45p PST and now I am only hearing 144 and 432 intermittently at best.

From my two days of actually being around and able to listen intermittently when I could hear the beacons (7/20 & today) I noticed that signals peaked both days between around 12:00n - 15:30p PST and signals disappeared almost like clockwork at shortly after 6:00p PST. I'll have to check later tonight to hear if they come back in.

Mahalo and have a great evening!

Am beginning to hear the 1296 beacon in/out as well with a huge S0 signal! My first time ever to hear it at my whopping 200ft in a valley elevation 2 miles from the coast!! Those at higher elevation must be hearing it very well though from my past observations.

07/21/06 15:55:51 - Message #816

First, thanks to WSWSS member, Dan, K6NKC for pointing me to this log page.

Next, all of Paul's signals dissappeared from SF city proper after 18:00PST last night shortly after I spoke with him on 2mtrs. I kept a little signal log yesterday when ever I happened to me in my home office and noted something I noticed the June 25/26 weekend opening. Seems that the 432 sigs and 144 sig strengths are somewhat inversely related. When 432 sig strength is climbing the 144 sig strength is weakening, and of course visa-versa. Now of course this makes sense as we have all studied this stuff but one rarely gets to observe this in real time and on multiple occasions at these frequencies.

My location is about 2 miles from the ocean and 225ft elevation. I have never heard the 50mhz or 1296 beacon. However, Jack, WB6EBR who is across the bay in Berkeley at 1000ft elevation could hear the 1296 beacon yesterday.

All for now and may you all have a great weekend.

73,

Dale

Well, some nice ham on WSWSS pointed me to this site. I've been listening to Pauls 144 and 432 beacons consistently in my home office all morning and recently left him a voice mail of such. 144 sigs ranging between s1/2 up to s8/9. 432 sigs ranging between s0 to s5. Mind you I have a very modest vhf/uhf setup on my end. I haven't heard anything on 1296. If anybody is interested in a short audio/video clip of his sigs as received on this end let me know and I can email one or both bands to you. (Amazing what a simple digital camera can do these days!)

Afternoon update. Sigs went as high as S8/9 on both 144 and 432 around 1:00p- PST. Then off to a meeting and now back at 5:00p. Can hear Paul weakly talking to S. CA & XE stations. 432 Beacon is stronger right now than his 2 mtr sig.

Nice warm (70+) day in SF with clear skys.

The last reference to the 1296 beacon freq was from K6QXY on 25 June who reported 1296.250. In past years had seen 1296.300 - .400 reported, with freq drifting with the site's temperature. I'm assuming K6QXY's freq is correct since it's most recent.

Put up the 1296 M2 Yagi this morning, but nothing heard on either 1296 freq.

KH6HME/B 144.17 now 599 in CM87 at 1740' where it's 65 deg F and clear overhead, but fog is approaching.
Upper air soundings show inversion is stronger and much closer to the ground in Southern CA than here.
