Beacon Reception at ZS6USA [KW1O] (Johannesburg, SA)

Reception of the IARU/NCDXF International Beacon Project beacons.

Location: Morningside, Sandton, Johannesburg, South Africa
Latitude: 26S05 / Longitude: 28E03 / Locator: KG43av
(Monitoring Station ZS6USA is back online as of 1 NOV 2014.)

Radio: Yaesu FT-817ND / Antenna: S9-18
Computer: Custom 12vdc mini-ATX PC / WinXP / Faros / Fling / ToyNTP
Timing: Local PPS GPS input (Review the Stratum-0 Project)

NOTES: Due to the poor Internet quality in South Africa, the Stratum-0 Project was born to provide accurate timing for Faros. I am presently using ToyNTP for time. Due to the poor power, I'm working on a 100 Amp 12 vdc power system with battery backup.
