The QRM is gone…

Finally after a few months I don’t have the QRM anymore on the higher bands. The guys from BIPT/IBPT (the belgian FCC) came over to my QTH and they found the source of the QRM and solved the problem.The QRM came from a broken high voltage light fixture in a nearby shop.

Now at least I can start to prepare for next contest ๐Ÿ™‚

Why I’ll probably not be able to work 5W0M


This is the QRM I have (S9 at least, on all bands from 17m up to 10m) during the time of the day where the propagation from 5W to ON is best.

I have identified the source of the QRM and I have filed a complaint with our authorities a few weeks ago. They sent me a letter they would investigate this as soon as possible. I hope ‘as soon as possible’ is tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚ That would leave me 2 days to try and work them… I need 5W0M for number 297.
