ROS with balcony antenna

15 August, 2011

This antenna is used by EA5GTU/P during his holidays  in La Manga (Spain). Besides of  this antenna being low efficient on HF, he could contact with YV5MM (Venezuela) with ROS.

And this is an example of how you should not configure your Rig filter. In this case ROS frequencies below 1000Hz are lost in a Icom-7000. However the contact with YV5MM could be completed in the worst conditions.

First on air test of the ROS Digital Repeater Mode‏

3 August, 2011

First on air test of the ROS Digital Repeater Mode (by Graham G0NBD)
Communication   where  established  on   28.295  Mhz  , all  stations  using  the  same   frequency
The RF  path   G0NBD  <>  IK2AOS    and     EA5HVK <>  IK2AOS ,
No  signal  from EA5HVK  could  be  observed  at  IO83LK 


Later  , the   cross band  function  was successfully   trailed, with a   HF / VHF  two  way   qso  between   G4WGT  and   EA5HVK using my  station  G0NBD  as the  cross  band  repeating  station.

G4WGT  using 144.980 and EA5HVK 10.134. 

The RF path G4WGT <> G0NBD <> EA5HVK  

Selective decoding

1 August, 2011

From 3 August 2011, the new ROS Mode accepts selective decoding and it will not be compatible with the present ROS Mode.

In position ALL decode any message (recommended for SWL operation).

In position RN6AM only decode RN6AM transmissions (recommended for QSO operation).
