Title: Experimnetal 30 Meter Beacon
Event Type: Special Events
Description: Ham Radio decades ago was an experimental hobby. Most hams back then built or designed their own equipment. Today, Al Gallo WØERE and “SAP” NØSAP have come up with another fun project you can join in with us.

We will have a 30 Meter Mobile Beacon transmitting on 10.129.25 MHz starting on May 16th at 12:00 UTC as we travel to Dayton Hamvention. We will transmit on this frequency at 3 watts giving our current Grid Square so you can track our movement from Southwest Missouri (Nixa, MO.) to Dayton, Ohio. We will be back on the air May 20th at the same time 12:00 UTC on our return trip to Nixa, MO.

The antenna will be a 23-foot trailing wire mounted on a Hustler mast without the resonator. Using Litz wire, it starts floating in the air at 35 MPH and will be flapping in the wind at about four to five feet off the ground. The length of the wire gives us a safe distance for vehicles behind us.

We will be monitoring 40 Meter SSB at 7.265 MHz and QSY to 18.140 MHz during our trip for Beacon reports. If you should hear our Beacon signal, please contact us on the air, by email, or audio file at You can also see the Beacon on QRZ under WØERE or Ham Nation Episode 97 at Click on the SD Large Video for viewing.

We need to hear from you to better understand propagation and signal reports at the time of transmission and location. NØSAP will be driving and receiving on the air reports. WØERE will be operating the Beacon from the passenger seat. If you are going to Dayton, we hope to see you on the road.
Starting Date: 05/20/13
Ending Date: 05/20/13
