60 METER TESTS

Every Saturday morning, following the 9:00 WPA ARES Voice Net on 3.983 MHz, we have been meeting on the 60 meter band to make signal strength comparisons across our WPA Section, and to try different antenna configurations to determine what works best to cover or 25,000 square-mile Section.

 

We meet on 60 meters on 5403.5 kHz upper sideband immediately after the 80 meter net. If that channel is in use, we will use 5371.5 USB. Even if your equipment cannot transmit on the 60 meter band, please tune in and listen, then send me a report of the stations you heard, and your signal report for each. This information is very useful, and the more reports we get the more meaningful the information becomes.
