Tune WWV

Postby donde » Tue Feb 24, 2015 12:51 am

If I select the 30, 20, 17, 15 option and build the Peaberry V2, will I be able to tune to WWV on 10 MHz?

Yes. 10MHz, 15MHz and 20MHz WWV.

If you select the 30/20 filter... 10MHz WWV will come in full strength. 15MHz WWV may be slightly attenuated depending on filter tolerances, but will come in full S/N on most antennas regardless.

If you select the 17/15 filter... 20MHZ WWV is full strength.

If you select the 60/40 filter... 5MHz WWV is full strength.

So no matter what bands you build, there's always a WWV for you. Very handy for calibrating the Si570 which tends to be about 50Hz off from the factory setting. I assume they do this in a rush since that's about the drift you get from letting it warm up. Don't let that scare you, typical drift is only a couple Hz throughout the day after ten minutes of warm up. It's a pretty nice LO for HF.

Thanks all,
One more. I guess I'll find out when I finish the kit. How much of the shortwave bands can I hear? Probably won't spend much time there, but just wondering.
