Predicted Signal Levels

Good luck with the broadcasts Chris.

I checked with VOACAP (the free propagation prediction program developed by the VOA: and came up with the following results:

Your signal into Frankfurt during those hours will be about S7 for a 10 watt transmitter. The MUF will be too low for you to be heard in the UK.

In New York at 0700 UTC, signal strength will be S1-S2. A better time to try if you want to reach the USA would be around 2300 UTC, when predicted SNR will be 20 dB, at S2-S3 levels.

Hello sligo

I receved your signal here in the Netherlands, it wasn't strong but i could hear your.
The signal strenght on my receiver was from below the noise level up to S6 and not much interference.
The receiver is a FRG8800 with a inverted L antenna aprox 30 meters long.

Greetings Jan
