• Xiegu X6100

Added at 2021-10-20 10:41:00

in Demenzradio, Language: DE



 QRP-Transceiver erscheinen gefühlt im Wochentakt. Der nächste Spross kommt aus China und heisst Xiegu X6100. Das Gerät sieht nicht mehr so chinesisch aus wie seine Vorgänger. Xiegu holt rasch auf und der Tag liegt wohl nicht allzu fern, wo die Chinesen zu den grossen Fünf aufschliessen werden. Damit meine ich nicht die Big Five der Afrikanischen Savanne, sondern Yaesu, Icom, Kenwood, Flexradio und Elecraft.Aber auch im Preis holt Xiegu auf. 750.- Franken soll das Teil kosten. Das ist aber immerhin nur die Hälfte eines äquivalenten Gerätes von Elecraft oder des IC-705 von Icom. Wobei letzterer über das 2m und 70cm Band verfügt. Verzichtet man auf VHF und UHF, so scheint der X6100 durchaus eine Alternative zu sein. Zumindest von den angepriesenen Daten her. Ob er dann in der Praxis hält, was versprochen wird, bleibt abzuwarten. Immerhin verfügt er im Gegensatz zum IC-705 über einen eingebauten Antennentuner. Meines Erachtens ein Muss für einen QRP-Transceiver im Ausseneinsatz.

• Ein Umzug mit Überraschungen

Added at 2021-10-18 07:53:00

in Demenzradio, Language: DE



 Nun sind wir endlich umgezogen, gezügelt wie man in der Schweiz sagt, oder déplacé, da hier ja Französisch gesprochen wird. Oder besser: nous étions déménagés. Da wir ja gezügelt wurden und nur aufgepasst haben, dass alles an den richtigen Ort kommt. Natürlich geht bei einem Umzug nicht immer alles nach Plan und oft gibt es Teile, die das Zügeln nicht überleben. Diesmal traf dieses Schicksal den Fernseher. Gut, dass ich den nicht zum Funken brauche. Er hat sich den Fuss gebrochen. Für ältere Fernseher ein Todesurteil. Die Hersteller bauen lieber neue TV-Kisten als alte Füsse.  Nun sind wir also in unserem neuen QTH angelangt. In den Westschweizer Alpen. Ein Touristenort mit dem Namen Charmey. Es hat hier alles, was man braucht und das alles in Fussgänger-Reichweite. Also genauso wie in einer Stadt. Nur das Opernhaus fehlt. Dafür ist bereits für die nächste Lebensetappe vorgesorgt. Das Altersheim, bzw. Pflegeheim ist nur ein paar Schritte entfernt. Aber zuerst wollen wir noch ein wenig wandern, funken und andere lustige Dinge tun.Wenn die elementaren Bedürfnisse der Maslowschen Pyramide für den Funker gedeckt sind, richtet sich das Interesse auf die elektromagnetische Welt. Wie sieht am neuen Standort der Aether aus? Hat es Störsignale und wie stark sind diese? Wo und wie kann man Antennen bauen? Natürlich klärt der Funker solche Dinge im Vorfeld des Umzugs ab. Ja, schon bei der Auswahl des neuen QTH's spielen diese Fragen eine grosse Rolle und stehen in Konkurrenz zu anderen Kriterien. Zumindest für den passionierten Funkamateur.Doch dann, wenn der Tag X vorbei ist und die Gegenstände des täglichen Gebrauchs ihren Platz gefunden haben, tauchen die ersten funktechnischen Überraschungen auf. Und manchmal ist alles anders als vorgesehen.Auch dieses Mal war es so. Da sich die Funkbude, auch Shack genannt, im Norden des Gebäudes befindet, sollte ein ganzer Bund Kabel von dort auf die Südseite geführt werden. Dort, so wurde ausgerechnet, sei auf dem Balkon die beste Möglichkeit, Antennen zu errichten. Doch die Rechnung wurde ohne die moderne Chalet-Bauweise gemacht. Was von aussen aussieht wie ein hübsches Mehrfamilien-Holzhaus, ist heutzutage nichts anderes als ein schnöder Betonbau mit Holz geschmückt. So kam denn die erste Überraschung ans Licht, sobald ein Loch in die Wand gebohrt wurde, zwecks Verlegung der Kabel. Da war keine Dachschräge hinter der Kniewand, wo man durchkriechen und Kabel verlegen konnte. Nein, da starrte einem eine schnöde Betonmauer entgegen. Eine Wand hinter der Wand. Ende Gelände.  Um diesen bedauerlichen Umstand festzustellen, hätte ein kleines Guckloch genügt. Doch der Vater der Gedanken hatte die Mutter der Vorsicht überstimmt. Macht nix. Auch grosse Löcher kann man zumachen. Doch damit war der Kabelplan im Eimer. Vorerst.Doch jeder Rückschlag beinhaltet auch eine Chance. Denn auch durch das Shack-Fenster im Norden sind interessante Berge zu sehen. Eine kleine Vier-Element Yagi, im Shack auf einem Fotostativ vertikal polarisiert, fand denn auch sofort ein paar interessante Signale im 2m Band. Einerseits via Diffraktion über die Kante des SOTA-Gipfels der "La Berra". Von dort wurden Stationen aus der Bundesstadt Bern und aus dem Mittelland mit starken Signalen empfangen. Garniert mit Flugzeugreflexionen, wie man auf Flightradar24 verifizieren konnte. Doch auch die schroffen Felszacken weiter im Osten boten gute Reflexionsmöglichkeiten. In ihrem Fall ins westliche Mittelland, bis in die Gegend von Genf und darüber hinaus nach Frankreich. Für das 2m Band ist also Hoffnung vorhanden. Doch wie sieht es auf der Kurzwelle aus?Zwar befinden sich auf der Nordseite eine Reihe Bäume, die geradezu nach einem Draht rufen. Doch das ist ein Projekt für später. Man möchte ja nicht gerade mit dem Draht ins Haus fallen. An Stelle eines endgespeisten Drahtes kommen nun als erstes Magnetantennen zum Zug. Sie sind als Innenantennen Drahtgebilden meist überlegen und weniger empfindlich auf Störungen aus der unmittelbaren Umgebung. Da der Shack in der dritten und letzten Etage, direkt unter dem Dachgiebel liegt, befinden sich nur Holz, Isolation und Ziegel über der Antenne. Für eine Magnetantenne ist das kein nennenswertes Hindernis. Siehe Bild zuoberst: das Fenster oben in der Mitte ist das Shack-Fenster. Meine AMA-87 sitzt also direkt unter dem Dachgiebel und glänzt mit dem Empfang starker Signale auf allen Bändern. Telegraphie-Verbindungen im 80m Band nach Norddeutschland zeigten bereits, dass es auch Sendeseitig funktioniert. Obwohl der Loop von diversen Berechnungsprogrammen nur wenige Prozente Wirkungsgrad im 80m Band zugestanden werden. Gar nur 1.4% nach dem Program von DG0KW. Von meinen 50W würden als bloss 700mW abgestrahlt. Wie dem auch sei. Mein neues QTH ist wie eine Wundertüte und birgt sicher noch jede Menge an Überraschungen, die es in der Zukunft zu erforschen gilt. Fortsetzung folgt....

Aber natürlich kann das Transviech nicht nur SSB sondern auch CW und all die lustigen digitalen Modulationsarten auf denen sich neuerdings gute 50% der Amateurfunker tummeln.Das Gerätchen sendet auf den Bändern 10 bis 80m mit Ausnahme des 12m Bandes, und empfängt von 20kHz bis 99 MHz. Für die Amateurbänder wird eine Art Vorselektion versprochen und die Sende-Filter sollen mit Miniaturrelais von Omron geschaltet werden. Das Teil soll angeblich alles haben, was heutzutage die digitale Signalverarbeitung zu bieten hat. Zum Beispiel Filter bis 50Hz runter, NB, NR, zwei VFO's, RIT, Split-Betrieb, VOX und full-bk, ein dBm und S-Meter, um nur einige der Goodies zu nennen. Für CW sind ein Keyer und ein Decoder eingebaut. Die Endstufe arbeitet im Klasse E Betrieb und der Wirkungsgrad soll bis zu 85% betragen. Dass das Ding überhaupt noch Strom braucht und nicht etwa noch zusätzlich abgibt ist verwunderlich. Der Spannungsbereich beträgt übrigens 7 - 15 Volt und die Sendeleistung soll bei 13.8V 5 Watt betragen.Der Kleine besteht aus zwei Platinen, die in einem Alu-Gehäuse sitzen. Ein Frontlautsprecher sei auch drin, heisst es.Zu schön um wahr zu sein?

• Seltsame Erscheinungen

Added at 2021-09-27 09:56:00

in Demenzradio, Language: DE



 Unsere Anstalt befindet sich im Transit. Das ist wie eine Eisenbahn die seit Wochen abgefahren und noch nicht angekommen ist. Draussen vor den Fenstern ziehen allerlei seltsame Dinge vorbei. Zum Beispiel Männer mit schweren Glocken auf den Schultern. Sie übertönen mit ihrem Geläute sogar die Geräusche der Lokomotive. Zukünftige Hörgerätebenutzer, vermute ich. Ob in der Lokomotive jemand sitzt, weiss ich nicht. Viele Züge im Leben sind bekanntlich führerlos. Doch die Passagiere scheinen real zu sein. Einige haben sich in einem separaten Abteil verschanzt und arbeiten an seltsamen Theorien. Sie seien ungeimpft, heisst es, und sie halten sich vom Rest der Passagiere fern. Aus Angst, sich mit der Impfung anzustecken. Mir hat übrigens die Impfung Vorteile gebracht. Meine Gedanken sind freier geworden. Doch das werde nicht von Dauer sein, behaupten die Insassen des seltsamen Abteils. Bald würde ich blind werden und Bill Gates würde mich fernsteuern, prophezeien sie. Eine hat mir kürzlich gesagt, ich sei ein Schlafschaf und werde dann schon noch auf die Welt kommen. Seltsame Worte, aber in einer Anstalt ist das nicht aussergewöhnlich.  Auch tauchen zuweilen seltsame Nachrichten auf. Zwar fährt unsere Lokomotive weit unter der Lichtgeschwindigkeit. Trotzdem glaube ich, dass die Seltsamkeiten an der Zeitdilatation liegen. So habe ich in den Steam-Nachrichten gelesen, dass die Deutsche Bundeswehr jetzt für 600 Millionen Euronen Funkgeräte aus dem Jahre 1982 nachbauen lässt. Ob aus Nostalgie oder weil sich die alte Technik besser bewährt hat als die neue, entzieht sich meiner Kenntnis. Manchmal wünschte ich, dass auch die Hersteller von Amateurfunkgeräten alte Modelle nachbauen würden. Neu ist nicht immer besser, jedoch oft mit kompliziertem Ballast beladen. Viel von dem Zeug braucht man nicht. Dafür muss man immer im Handbuch nachschauen, wenn man die Kiste zwei Wochen nicht benutzt hat. Kürzlich bin ich im Steam-Magazin, einer Beilage zu den Steam-Nachrichten, über eine interessante Anzeige gestolpert. Da wurde nämlich eine Antenne für den Jedermann-Funk angepriesen, wie ich sie noch nie gesehen habe. Sie heisst GR45 und hat die Verlängerungsspule nicht an der Basis und nicht in der Mitte, sondern zuoberst. Dafür sitzt darüber, gewissermassen als Hut, eine lustige Dachkapazität. Eine interessante Idee. So fliesst im Stängel möglichst viel Strom, und der strahlt bekanntlich. Ein Artikel über diese seltsame Antenne ist bereits im CB-Radio-Magazine 1996 erschienen. Damals hiess sie noch Goldenrod Spyder 45A+.

• Nachrichten aus dem Antennenwald

Added at 2021-09-23 10:01:00

in Demenzradio, Language: DE



 Die Antenne ist der wichtigste Bestandteil einer Funkstation. Moderne Amateurfunk-Transceiver sind heute so gut, dass es im Normalfall nicht darauf ankommt, mit welchem Gerät man funkt. Trotzdem werden die Prioritäten oft andersrum gesetzt. Und so verkümmert manch teures Gerät an einem Hinterhof-Dipol. Irgendwie verständlich: Transceiver sind wesentlich günstiger zu haben als ein neues QTH mit Gittermast. Vielleicht ist es auch so, dass ein 5000$ Gerät eine bessere Illusion vermittelt als eines für 1500$. Interessanterweise scheint es auch einen Zusammenhang zu geben, zwischen der Anzahl der Geräte, die ein Funker besitzt und seiner Antenne. Je mickriger die Antenne, desto mehr Geräte stehen im Shack. Dabei kann man in der Regel immer nur mit einem zur selben Zeit funken, und all die vielen Geräte ändern nichts an der Antennensituation.Dabei gibt es kaum eine Antenne die man nicht noch verbessern könnte. Oder anders gesagt: es gibt kaum ein QTH, wo man punkto Antennen nicht noch mehr rausholen könnte. Sollte man sich nicht vielmehr mit seiner Antennensituation beschäftigen, als an den Knöpfen seines Transceivers rumzuspielen?Gerade den Computer Affinen stehen mit Programmen zur Antennensimulation ausgezeichnete Instrumente zur Verfügung. Viele benutzen zum Beispiel die frei erhältlichen Programme MMANA-GAL oder 4NEC2.Andere Programme zur Antennensimulation kosten oft eine schöne Stange Geld. Hier in der Anstalt hat mir die Direktion das Programm von Roy Lewallen W7EL bewilligt und ich bin damit sehr zufrieden. Roy hört übrigens 2022 auf und stellt dann seine Profi-Version kostenlos zur Verfügung. Ist auch höchste Zeit, dass Roy in Pension geht, er ist schon bald 76 Jahre alt, und es ist lieb von ihm, dass er uns sein tolles Programm gratis offeriert. Er hat aber nicht die Absicht, den Source-Code zu veröffentlichen und natürlich wird auch der Support eingestellt.Für die, die sich nicht in das Gebiet der Antennensimulation wagen wollen, gibt es ja im Internet jede Menge an nützlichen und weniger nützlichen Informationen. Einige findet ihr in der Spalte rechts unter Tools&Blogs. Gerade habe ich wieder ein paar hinzugefügt.

• QRP oder darf es ein bisschen mehr sein?

Added at 2021-09-13 09:05:00

in Demenzradio, Language: DE



 QRP liegt im Trend. Kleine, leichte Stationen mit 5 Watt Sendeleistung, um draussen in der Natur zu funken. Oder als Backup für Notfunker. Oder als Amateurfunkstation für das bescheidene Budget.Das Angebot ist gross und es ist für jeden etwas dabei. Es gibt mehr QRP-Transceiver als ausgewachsene Stationstransceiver auf dem Markt. Da viele nicht von den grossen Herstellern stammen, sind sie oft nicht einfach zu entdecken und verbergen sich im Dschungel des Internets.Aber nur 5 Watt? 13dB weniger als der ausgewachsene Transceiver mit seinen 100 Watt zuhause. Ist das nicht etwas mager? "Darf's ein bisschen mehr sein?"Gerne! Zurückschrauben kann man ja immer. Und es ist gut, im "Notfall" ein paar dB zulegen zu können. 10 Watt oder 20 Watt können darüber entscheiden, ob ein QSO zustande kommt oder nicht. Schaut man sich das Angebot an QRP-Geräten genauer an, merkt man bald, dass sie nicht nur unterschiedliche Konzepte haben, sondern auch verschiedene Schwächen und Vorteile. Welche Eigenschaften sollte ein guter QRP-Transceiver besitzen?1. Leicht und klein2. Robust3. Alle Bänder und Betriebsarten, die den Benutzer interessieren.4. Guter Empfänger5. Geringer Stromverbrauch6. Muss ins Budget des Käufers passen7. Tuner, wenn keine resonanten Antennen verwendet werden.Leicht und klein sind heute in der Regel alle mehr oder weniger. Das Gewicht hängt natürlich mit der Robustheit zusammen. Einer, der sich besonders auf dieses Merkmal konzentriert hat, ist der Discovery TX-500 von Lab599. Das Gerät ist nicht nur kompakt und extrem robust, er lässt fast keine Wünsche offen. Der Discovery sieht aus wie ein Armee-Gerät.Betriebsarten und Bänder folgen individuellen Wünschen. Manche OM sind nur an speziellen Bändern interessiert und machen nur SSB oder nur CW. Andere vor allem Digital. Wer zum Beispiel nur CW macht, den Transceiver gerne selbst zusammenbauen möchte und ein kleines Budget hat, sollte seinen Blick nach Spanien richten. Er wird vielleicht bei EA3GCY fündig. Auch ein Blick nach England lohnt sich: zu QRP Lab. Doch wer gleichzeitig Kurzwelle und UKW in einem Gerät möchte, für den wird die Auswahl eng und er muss diverse Kompromisse eingehen. Mir fallen dazu nur die bewährten FT-817 bzw. sein Nachfolger FT-818 von Yaesu, der Icom IC-705 und der Elecraft KX3 mit 2m Option ein. Der Icom hat einen Stromsäufer als Empfänger und keinen eingebauten Antennentuner. Der Yaesu hat die gleichen Schwächen aber zum halben Preis und ist technisch veraltet. Der KX-3 ist nicht gerade ein Ausbund von Robustheit und sehr teuer, dafür sparsam. Wer nur KW macht und auf das 160m Band verzichten kann, ist jedoch mit dem KX2 besser bedient. Aber auch der ist - verglichen mit dem Discovery - ein empfindliches Teil.Gute Empfänger haben die meisten QRP-Geräte. Zumindest gut genug für die Behelfsantennen bei Portabelbetrieb. Das können inzwischen die meisten Hersteller. Ob es bei einem QRP-Gerät unbedingt einen Wasserfall braucht, darüber scheiden sich die Geister. Und ob man einen Antennentuner benötigt, entscheidet die Antenne. Bei einer Magnet-Loop-Antenne ist der Tuner quasi eingebaut. Doch für das 80m Band sind die Dinger von sehr bescheidenem Nutzen. Der Wirkungsgrad sink nämlich in der vierten Potenz mit zunehmender Wellenlänge. Da ist jeder Draht um "Längen" besser.Kommen wir wieder zurück zum ersten Thema: der Sendeleistung. Wer draussen in der Natur mehr Leistung als 5 bis 10 Watt haben möchte und dafür einen externen Lipo Akku rumschleppen will, lacht sich vielleicht einen Chinesen an. Zum Beispiel den G90 von Xiegu. Wem das Gerät, trotz des günstigen Preises (etwa 1/3 der teuren QRP-Transceiver) und trotz der 20W nicht geheuer ist, könnte sich vielleicht für ein Gerät mit klassischem Konzept interessieren. Für den RGO One von LZ2JR.
