Propagation

30m propagation is unique and different from both 40m and 20m providing the best of both.

The following are some useful tools for checking propagation conditions on 30m:

1. CURRENT SOLAR-TERRESTRIAL CONDITIONS

2. NON-STOP RTTY FROM GERMANY 10101 KHZ

See DDK9 for details

3. FOR THOSE IN EUROPE: DATA FROM DK0WCY

10144.0 kHz for schedule and modes: see DK0WCY for details

4. QRP BEACONS

See just how little power is needed. These QRPp beacons can easily be heard in Europe:

  • 10130.0 kHz IZ1UHA/B QTH JN44DI PWR: 10W ANT: GP
  • 10130.0 kHz PWR 0.5W QTH Liberec (inactive?)
  • 10131.5 kHz IZ3DVW/B PWR: 1W ANT: Dipole QTH: Monselice (PD)
  • 10133.0 kHz SA6RR QTH JO67KI PWR: 0.8W ANT: 1/4 wave vertical (GP)
  • 10133.5 kHz HB4FV/B Swiss Military Amateur Station PWR: 1W Solar Power QTH: JN37Q 1200m ASL (Note: transmits for 8 minutes in every 10 minutes?)
