WSPR Beacon in Thailand!!!
« on: February 20, 2010, 01:58:31 PM »
Hi folks,
during my stay in Thailand (OK16bq) in March and April,i will let run my station with a vertical polarized Groundplane as WSPRBeacon HS0ZIL. Would be great if other amateurs will have a look about. Output will be 5 Watts!!!!
Frequency: 144.488.00
For further information have a look at: http://wsprnet.org/drupal/

Hello Karsten

I'm not sure but I dont think a good idea for a Beacon on that Frequenz   , even the normal aprs is over 145.600

and all channel as they say here are FM mode so I would think twice to do that.

Hi Kurt,
yes, you are right!
i didn`t think about the problems with the Band Plan and was following the international recommondations for WSPR frequencies. But you are right! Perhaps i intend to use 144.068. Was already asked Joe, HS2JFW, for this solution!!!

Well after going in deep that's true digital modes have there own window ...

I' am guessing it was 145.500 - 145.600 MHz just below the repeaters. - But Joe knows that and once mentioned something!

e.g.

APRS QRG  145.525 MHz

THERE DOES NOT exist anything according to only FM Mode allowed .... sure some HS VHF guys will tell you that because

  • 1. They do not know about it!
  • 2. They do not have any Multi Mode Rig!

I attached a file which maid not be up-to-day anymore but it's still quite close!

Well its not that we could use all that IARU allows but you have to think that we are guests in this Country and we have to play it to what the Thais do.
And better not to step on anybody toes to much or maybe problems arise.
So better play it safe and on the other hand , dont wake the bear thats sleeps.

I totally agree with that we ALL should do that... but believe it or not ...


  • 1. Can you explain me how does it comes that the IC 275 - 2m Allmode is registered here if only FM is allowed!!... just only 1 example! the given approval list shows only RIG for HF!
  • 2. Example - VHF Guy told me on the band that in Thailand is NO english language allowed on VHF  ;D  ;D  - How do you spell your call .... I hope you see that's true!
  • 3. These are the contest regulation of the VHF Thailand Fielday contest as published by the contest Manager

    Thailand Fieldday Contest

    Quote
    3.  Mode ที่ใช้ในการแข่งขัน

        การติดต่อสื่อสารให้ใช้งานใน Mode ต่างๆ ได้แก่ FM, SSB, CW, MCW, Digital, Satellite (ห้ามใช้งานผ่านระบบทวนสัญญาณ Repeater
        และ Echolink รวมทั้งระบบ Voice Over IP อื่นๆ)



even the NTC officer DO NOT know the HAM Regulation in HS! - That's the truth!!! 

There are some well informed HAM's (Thai) who read all the regulation and updates ... so if you talk to them they can tell you where it's written and what is possible!

I dont know what you mean by throw a stone , Because I havent said anthing about what you can or can not do .

I only told Carsten to be a little bit careful .
And for The Icom 275 They are not approved if they do not have a sticker the number you se on most of them engraved is a import permit number,  Ntc Chiangmai do Confiscate them here in Chiangmai if found in Use.
