The Audio Recordings of VK3OT
VK3OT, Steve is one of the famous Australian DXers.
He sent me a large number of real audio files that include 50MHz QSOs and some beacons audio.
(Some old recordings were made by JA1RJU "Kazu", and encorded into RA files by Steve.)
As for a few beacon recordings, I attached audio files which were recorded in Japan.
(For details, please see the JA Beacons page)
Compare these files! It may be interesting.

VK9XT No.1 (Normal RA file)
This was the DX pedition to the Christmas Island which was executed in Feb 1980.
At that time, VKs were allowed to operate on only 52MHz band.
Thus, many of JA stations used ANT tuners, or log-periodic yagi ANTs which covers wide band range 50MHz to 52MHz.
VK9XT No.2 (Normal RA file)
- QSO between VK9XT and JA3s.
VK9XT No.3 (Normal RA file)
- VK9XT working with VK8GB.
VK9XT No.4 (Normal RA file)
VK9XI (Normal RA file)
- VK9XI's Beacon into JA (Feb 1980)

The TEP is a famous propagation between the Northern Hemisphere and the Southern Hemisphere. The TEP propagation usually goes with "flatter" which is caused by the slight shift of the frequesncy.
