The first in the night of 07 August, I was on 144148.0 for to try one MS
Random QSO with LZ7Y; the burst from him was very strong. At 22:30 utc I have listened
on the frequencies one continuous signal, I put my antenna around 30/40 deg Est. To my great
amazement I have listened one strong signal S/9 with classic
FAI effect . Therefore I have switch to my DTR recorder and have decoded LZ7Y
in qso with F8HS. After I have had received LZ7Y RRRR I have called him in cw at slowly speed
for ten minutes. Unfortunately LZ7Y have not received me and after some minutes , probably, he have
turned antenna in other direction. At 23:30 Utc I have worked LZ7Y in MS qso with very
In accordance with the K9SE FAI software I have calculate the details of this listening : I have found that the parameters was totally respected.
In fact :
1) My antenna was direct around 30/40 deg
2) LZ7Y was in qso with F8HS located in JN23 , the tropo antenna directions of the LZ7Y(KN41), probably, was 285 deg.
I was on yellow contours lines, and the same is true of LZ7Y.
The calculate scatter point was around JN83.
1) My antenna was direct around 60/70 deg
2) Andrea TA1ZK/0 (KM29) have confirmed me that his antenna was at 300 deg.
I was on black contours lines, and the same is true of TA1ZK/0.
The calculate scatter point was around JN92/KN02. On this same scatter I have worked, in the past, SV1BTR in KM17.
