    QSO per jam











    Pada hari pertama, aktiviti contest berkurang daripada hari kedua. Hari kedua, UTC 14:00 hingga UTC 19:00 aktiviti rancak. Pada waktu tersebut, saya mendapat pile-up daripada eropah. Eropah membuka awal, iaitu sekitar jam 10 malam dan semakin menurun hinggalah tutup terus pada pukul 4 pagi waktu local. Jika diperhatikan... Eropah amat galak sekitar jam 10.00 malam hingga 2 pagi local. Sesuatu perlu dilakukan untuk mencuri kesempatan ini.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Continents
    Benua eropah dan benua asia masing-masing mencatatkan bacaan QSO yang tinggi, manakala benua africa hanya 1 qso sahaja. Sebanyak 5 benua berjaya kawan hubungi, iaitu Benua Asia-North America-Africa-Eropah-Oceania.













    Benua Amerika Utara
    NA  44 stations













    Benua Eropah
    Benua Eropah 349 station


















    Benua Africa
    Benua Africa 4 station














    Benua Asia
    Benua Asia 384 station














    Oceania
    Oceania 16 station















    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    CQ Frequency












    12 kali terpaksa pindah kerana dipijak oleh station besar. Inilah risiko yang perlu dihadapi oleh station kecil apabila keadaan band menjadi sesak, terutama pada waktu peak, pada masa tersebut, undang-undang rimba digunapakai, iaitu siapa kuat-dialah raja.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Beam Heading

    Oleh kerana dalam contest ini, kita yang diburu. Maka aktiviti rotator menjadi sangat rendah. Saya hanya beam ke arah 30 darjah untuk mencari station disebelah lautan Pasifik dan 320 darjah untuk mencari eropah. Kalau contest lain...mungkin akan banyak aktiviti rotator.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    DX Cluster Spot






















    25 kali callsign 9m2zak di-spot dalam website dxwatch.com, kebanyakkannya dari negara eropah. Apa-apa pun, saya mengucapkan jutaan terima kasih kerana spot kawan di cluster. Sebenarnya ianya sedikit sebanyak membantu kita semasa aktiviti contest berlangsung, tetapi ingat...jangan self-spotting sudahlah. Nanti kita akan disingkirkan.

















    Negara yang paling banyak QSO adalah Jepun, iaitu 297 QSOs manakala yang kedua banyak dikuasai oleh Eropah Russia iaitu 74, Ketiga jatuh kepada United State 44 dan ke-4 ialah Germany 42 dan selebihnya adalah dari 57 buah negara serata dunia.

    Dibawah ini adalah senarai video kawan in-action yang dirakam dari Brunei dan Sabah.

    Pagi ini menerima 4 lagi aprs packet daripada YB0X-1. Untuk lintasan yang seterusnya pada pukul 0935 UTC dan 11.20 UTC. Setup masih sama dengan yang asal, tiada perubahan.

    Menerima packet APRS daripada Lapan-Sat (IO-86)

    Petang tadi, menerima 2 packet aprs dari YB0X-1 yang memancar dari satellite Lapan-Sat IO-86 semasa lintasan kedua. Packet ini diterima tanpa aktifkan DDE, jadi tiada Doppler Effect. Sengaja disetkan sebegini dengan tujuan untuk melihat dan belajar serta memahami kesan doppler. Untuk itu, sebagai rekod dan rujukan masa depan, ianya divideokan segala aktiviti satellite tersebut.

    LAPAN-A2/ORARI satellite

    Pagi tadi, kawan berjaya bersalaman dengan satellite dari Indonesia, iaitu Lapan-A2 ( IO-86). Percubaan ini sebenarnya adalah satu eksperimen bagi menguji antenna QFH.  Jadi eksperimen ini akan diteruskan lagi pada satelite yang lain seperti ISS dan PCSAT. Pemburuan burung besi akan diteruskan...selamat berpuasa, Zaki 73.

    CUTE-1.7+APD II (CO-65) satelite

    Semalam saya cuba untuk menerima signal dari satelite CO-65, ini adalah percubaan yang pertama. Jika mengikut spesifikasinya, saya dijangkakan akan menerima CW beacon signal. Jadi untuk itu, saya telah siapkan HDSDR+CWskimmer

    HDSDR ini telah dihubungkan dengan CWskimmer dengan menggunakan CAT tujuannya adalah supaya freq dan mode dari HDSDR itu dapat dibaca dan sama dengan CWskimmer, CWskimmer untuk decode CW tersebut supaya rakan-rakan yang kurang mahir dalam CW dapat juga mengerti apakah maklumat yang dihantarnya.

    Untuk receiver, saya gunakan RTL SDR RTL2832U DVB-T Tuner Dongles tanpa gunakan LNA dan FM NotchDibawah ini adakah rakaman lintasan tersebut.



    Selepas ini, saya akan gunakan LNA serta DDE untuk doppler effect. Tapi itu untuk percubaan yang kedua nanti. Percubaan ketiga pula, LNA+FM Notch+DDE. Nantikan bahagian seterusnya dalam post yang akan mendatang. 73.
