JX7SIX were spotted several times in NA this summer. The spots on DXsummit indicates at least 10 days with AE or ES. The full info can be found on my website: la7dfa.com

MORE re: jx7six/b.......ooops! Forgot to say, that the paths were NOT always in daylight. Many occured early to late evening. As late as midnight here. (hours and hours of darkness.) Appreciate your efforts on the beacon, Mni tnx!

OK on all JX-NA paths not being daylight ;) I tought I plotted most of them ;) And yes I saw announcements on dxers.info, but far easier to fetch the dxsummit datas. (if anyone have more datas, mail it to me) Also a recording from NA would be VERY appreciated for the website. JX9NOA is the man to persuade into 6M activity next summer! web()olemartin.no www.olemartin.no/janmayen/ PS: I have made a video of JX7DFA working 10M CW available on la7dfa.com (click on JX7DFA HF). More & better videos in the near future...

Regarding Arctic conditions: please note that as soon as the X-component of the geomagnetic field jumps about 200 units or more (http://www.sgo.fi/Data/RealTime/allinone.php) in the 19 - 23 UTC window, there is often Auroral_E propagation. Thus an alert JW/JX operator can potentially acquire quite many contacts, despite low solar flux or the absent Summer Es season ..... Good luck to all! 73, "Zaba" OH1ZAA

(Per), I do have a video recording , with audio of the JX7SIX beacon one of the first times I heard it this summer via late night Au-Es.....(I love the Au-Es !) I'll see if I can somehow convert it to an audio file and send it to you................................................ (Zaba) I have long been a big believer in late night Au-Es in the summertime (May/Jun/Jul/Aug) (even with only a mediocre Au or slightly elevated K index) yet very often there is no beacon in the area which I believe we have prop to, or is also often the case, we hear beacons or 48/49MHz video, but there is no one home. If I had a "Euro" (or dollar) for every time I have heard SM/LA video or beacons out of VE8/OX/northern VE4, I would be rich !HI! :-)

PER& ZABA----just stumbled onto the late night Arctic Es postings. I agree with Mike, VE9AA, that the months of July/Aug. were filled, usually from @2200Z til way past 0600Z with Scandanavian videos, the omnipresent JX/b, and heard the JW/b a few times also. But, as Mike said, "no one at home!!" That Arctic path seems to be pretty well open almost every night starting in late June and peaking around 1st or 2nd week of August. I was constantly on the Eur. cluster when the Scandinavian videos were rolling in and called thousands of "CQs" towards he Arctic regions but no luck except for a few qsos one early 3-4AM local time opening to GW/F/DL/I. I unfortunately did not make any audio recording but will be ready next Summer. Bo, OZ1DJJ, on his website does however have a recording of our Auroral-E qso sometime in Feb. Also, every major Storm, I hear and/or work MM0AMW via Auroral-Es and los of Eur. vids come rolling in after 2200-2300Z. Lefty, K1TOL

Lefty, was it JW5SIX, JW7SIX or JW9SIX you heard? ;) None of them are spotted outside EU on DXsummit this year.
Per, LA7DFA  - Saturday, November 05 2005 at 04:50 (GMT)


Per, ...and there were times VE1RG heard it, or myself, or K1TOL and we spotted it via the W4TRH website, but the spots never made it to the ww dxclusters, too. You'd be surprised just how reliable of a beacon that was. For a few weeks, I could almost set my watch to its arrival !......now just to work a human up there, hi! 73 de Mike
Mike, VE9AA  - Thursday, November 03 2005 at 13:35 (GMT)


I don't know the answer to that JW bcn question, but MORE OFTEN THAN NOT, spots sent from W4TRH (dxers.info) website do not make it to the oh2 cluster. Heck, even some spots I post -directly- on the OH2 cluster webpage don't ever appear!! It's a nice resource, but only displays a fraction of the "real" spots, hi!
Mike, VE9AA  - Saturday, November 05 2005 at 13:49 (GMT)



Mike, I have made the same experience with the OH cluster. If I use the webform to spot something I normally have to repeat it several times to get it through to be displayed. You are also right with the database. There is a big difference between the actual spots (the last 50) and what is stored in the database. E.g. the last 1000 or 10000 spot function shows only a fraction of what has been really spotted. It`s a pity. 73 Joe, CT1HZE/DL8HCZ

PER: Sorry....was at College teaching all day today. It was the beacon on 046, JW5SIX/b, that I heard
