I have been playing around with PSK31, WSPR and JT65 since I got my 30′ long wire with UNUN installed in the attic.
I have noticed something that is bugging me a bit.
It appears that I am being heard much better than I am hearing other stations.
When I call CQ on PSK31 – the PSK REPORTER site shows my signal being heard from coast to coast and beyond. Most time I get a return call, but many times I can just barely see them on the waterfall.
I have noticed the same thing with WSPR – heard all over the place, but hardly hearing anyone.
So it has me thinking about the antenna. Could it be that it is a better radiator than it is a receiver?
I am going to be putting a 66′ ladder fed dipole up there sometime in the next month – so that might tell me more.
You guys with more experience – what do you think might be going on here?
