quote: PsyOp, my long time survivalist buddy, wanted to get on the air between his location and mine with an antenna he finally found the time to rig for NVIS use. What good is this stuff if we’re not doing it? We tried the top end of 40m early in the day- the bacon frying sound of the noise floor meant propagation was impossible. Moved down to 80m, the same. Tried 60m, barely heard above the noise floor. I suggested this based on the sound, trying to find the maximum usable frequency and minimum usable frequency, by sound, with the sweet spot for NVIS propagation in between.
