The idea

Intention of 9A0BVP beacon located in Pazin (whitch is mostly surrounded by hills) is to observe propagations to north and to south, in combination together with 9A0BVS beacon (located on JN74BX Skitaca, 450m ASL) in directions west - east is intended to provide VHF propagations data info in region of Istra.



The beacon

* Callsign: 9A0BVP
* QRG: 144.485 MHz
* Mode: CW
* Present location: JN65XF, 45.24° N, 13.93° E, m ASL
* Antenna: dipole, direction: north-south
* Power: 2W (test phase)
* Beacon message: 9A0BVP JN65xf ##C + 25 seconds key down
(## are two digits of current outside temperature, aquired throught through DS1820 probe)
