I will be running an experimental QRP beacon on 40 meters through
most of Saturday evening Feb 3 and Sunday Feb until about 4 PM EST.

Location : Newtown Square PA FM29hx (about 15 miles west of Philadelphia)
   You all should know about Newtown Square after the duPont fiasco
   last weekend ;-) I am about 1 mile east of where it all happened.

Frequency: 7021.0 KHz

Power : various between 500 mW and 2 mW (level will be sent with message)

Antenna : 40 meter inverted vee @ 50' in a north/south plane. Fed with
   125' 9913

Message : VVV VVV VVV xx mW <4_letter_codeword> DE WA3NNA/B QRP
   Sent at 13 WPM.

Time : I hope to have it on the air as early as midnight EST Saturday
  night (0500 UTC 04 FEB) and run it at various power levels through
  the day Sunday. Exact times/power levels are not known at this time.
  I hope to keep the beacon on through Sunday afternoon until about 4 PM EST

Take a listen and see if you can hear it.

All reception reports will be appreciated.
