I ran the beacon for a few days on 30m with my 10.140MHz crystal but had no reports. On New Year's day 2008, I changed the crystal for 40m. I have several 40m crystals and chose to use a 7,014 kHz crystal. The frequency was set at about 7,014,130. Later, Peter DL6NL sent me a 7,000kHz crystal, and I was able to move to the favoured QRSS sub-band of 7,000,850 +/- 50Hz.

The following reports are in reverse chronological order (most recent first):

10-Jan-08: Peter DL6NL's new crystal: 7,000,850 10mW

Thanks for the first report on the new crystal!

Shows the same hiccup at 08:54 as observed by Les (see above) at the same time. Nobody was in the shack!
