2005 Freq. Measurement Test Results

I entered my first ARRL Frequency Measurement Test in November, 2005, as predicted in a previous posting.

My results came back recently:




BandError (Hz)ppm Error
160M1.22-0.66
80M0.590.15
40M-0.69-0.09

On 160M, there was a far stronger signal level than the other bands, but the results are the worst, probably because of mixed propagation paths, unstable ionosphere, etc. On 40M, the signal was so weak I was not sure if I had it at all, amidst all the QRM. Probably this was ground wave propagation.


The full ARRL report is here.
