The Marconi Radio Club of Newfoundland (MRCN) station VO1MRC will be
conducting an experiment from 0000-2400 UTC on the 19th and 20th of June
2004. During this period, a CW beacon will be in operation on 5269.5 kHz to
determine the relative performance of high and low radiation angles. The
aerial in use will be identified by a code in each transmission. Signal
reports from local and distant stations will be gratefully received.
VO1MRC will be open briefly for 2 way contacts with stations authorized to
transmit on 60 metres starting 0000 UTC each of these days and will operate
simplex on 5260.5 kHz CW. Following this it will transmit on 5327.5 USB and
receive 5346.5 USB and 3807.5 kHz LSB.
The experiment was proposed by MRCN, endorsed by Radio amateurs of Canada
and authorized by Industry Canada. For further information, please check the
