VK3CRG receiving VK3YE Peter's experimental 40m beacon running only 20mw from Chelsea in Melbourne, Australia. I'm located in Lara just near Geelong which is 62km exactly from Peter's QTH. While most of that is across Corio and Port Philip Bays it's still an impressive effort by Peter's beacon considering the beacon is USB powered and emits only 20mw. The VK3YE Experimental Beacon has been heard hundreds of kilometres from the transmission site in Melbourne. Have you heard it on 7.160? If you have, make sure you let Peter know and subscribe to his "VK3YE" YouTube channel for lots of great videos on home brewing, pedestrian HF mobile and lots of stuff of interest to the radio amateur and hobbyist alike.
