kfs reception

Ulli
KFS sometimes spots my 5wtts signal on 40m at our morning after our sunrise (about 7h utc). This path is very difficult, as the auroral zone adds absorption, if condx are not really good - as a consequence only very few central European stations can be heard at the westcoast at the moment - still little early for the winter season.

But in the case of kfs:
- can we find out which antenna spotted me, and if more than one antenna spots Europe, which one is best ?

It would be interesting to know...

I guess that even the TCI-530 omni may be better than the high gain LPDAs pointing into a completely wrong direction.. at least as long as we have to wait for longpath propagation. Longpass comminication with Europe should be best on TCI 532 pointing to the south pacific (222deg), though.

My tx ant is pointing to 315deg in the morning with effective gain of approx. 7db over a single element

Ulli, ON5KQ

Other stations spotting through the contest weekend: KA7OEI-7 (Clint), N6GN/K(Glenn - your vert dipole works...hi!), K6KFT(indeed a low-noise location...), to name a few...great!

 I can't remember if you can access the Timescale database directly, then it is simple, as below, and you have your answer. Heard on three antennas ...
 Best wishes
