QRSS – G0PKT is back

Earlier this week I noticed that G0PKT was missing when I ran my occasional QRSS grabber on 30m so I asked around the QRSS community and it turned out that it hadn’t been heard for a few days.

I contacted Tony, G0MBA who checked and found that the power supply which the transmitter was running from had failed.  A replacement was sourced and at around 12:25z today G0PKT returned to the airwaves.

I’ve captured and stitched together a few frames which show G0PKT warming up and drifting down onto the correct frequency, right at the bottom of the section of 10MHz which is used for QRSS.

The strong trace at around 10,140.070kHz is G0MBA’s QRSS beacon.
