OH3SHF Microwave Beacons in Hervanta, Tampere, Finland
KP11VK

OH3TR operates the OH3SHF microwave beacons on 2.3, 3.4, 5.7, 10 and 24 GHz. The beacons are co-located with our 6 m and 70 cm FM speech repeater and 23 cm FM ATV repeater on the Hervanta water tower where we also have our VHF/UHF/microwave contest station.

Downtown Tampere by Night

This picture of downtown Tampere at night, taken from the observation platform to the northwest where the Näsinneula observation tower with its FM repeaters and the OH3RNE 1296.975 MHz beacon is the distinguished landmark of Tampere, should give you an idea about the ideal location of the site. The horizon is far, far away, no matter which direction you look to. More pictures and a video clip can be found on the page profiling our VHF/UHF/SHF contest station.

OH3SHF
antennas

The beacon antennas are mounted on our VHF/UHF/microwave contest tower. The tip of the tower is 222 metres above sea level and 67 metres above ground level on the highest hill in town, quite near the university. The hardware is made by OH3LWP and OH3MCK with some help from the club members in installation and testing.

The leading edge of the first dash of the letter "O" in the message is synchronised with a GPS receiver to the start of every minute.

Frequency accuracy is better than 100Hz (the synthesizers use a home brewed GPS locked 10 MHz reference by OH3MCK). We have now changed the reference unit from a Philips one to a Rockwell one, and the previous drift bursts have vanished.

"We are always exact, with other beacons your mileage may vary"


OH3SHF 2.3 GHz beacon on 2320.842 MHz

  • 50 W transmitter power
  • single slot Alford slot antenna
  • about 6dBi omnidirectional gain, horizontal polarisation
  • ERP 125 W

OH3SHF 3.4 GHz beacon on 3400.800 MHz

  • 6 W transmitter power
  • single slot Alford slot antenna
  • about 6dBi omnidirectional gain, horizontal polarisation
  • ERP 13.5 W

OH3SHF 5.7 GHz beacon on 5760.800 MHz

  • 8 W transmitter power
  • 32 slot slotted waveguide antenna
  • about 13 dBi omnidirectional gain, horizontal polarisation
  • ERP 100 W

OH3SHF 10 GHz beacon on 10368.800 MHz

  • 4 W transmitter power
  • 64 slot slotted waveguide antenna
  • 15 dBi omnidirectional gain, horizontal polarisation
  • ERP 80 W

OH3SHF 24 GHz beacon on 24048.800 MHz

  • About 0.5 W transmitter power
  • 128 slot slotted waveguide antenna
  • 15 to 18 dBi omnidirectional gain, horizontal polarisation
  • Best radiation to east/west, smaller lobes to north/south
  • ERP 30 W to the directions of maximum

All bands have individual messages:

Beacon messages for 2.3 GHz:

OH3SHF KP11VK 2320842 kHz [long dash]

Beacon message for 3.4 GHz:

OH3SHF KP11VK 3400800 kHz [long dash]

Beacon message for 5.7 GHz

OH3SHF KP11VK 5760800 kHz [long dash]

Beacon message for 10 GHz

OH3SHF KP11VK 10368800 kHz [long dash]

The 2,3 GHz signal is multiplied by two from a VCO running at about 1,15 GHz locked to reference.

The 5,7 GHz signal is multiplied by four from a VCO running at about 1,4 GHz locked to reference.

The 10 GHz signal is multiplied by six from a VCO running at about 1,7 GHz locked to reference.

CW keying is done at VCO frequency.


The 5 and 10 GHz beacons were installed and activated in KP11VK on 15th June 2002 by OH3LWP and OH3MCK.

The 2.3 GHz band was installed and activated in KP11VK on 13th May 2003 by OH3LWP and the group. You can find some pictures of the installation here.

The 10 MHz GPS locked reference was added by OH3MCK in June 2003.

The beacon was QRT for a few weeks during the summer of 2003 due to damage from a lightning strike.

The 2.3 GHz band transmitter power was increased to 50W on 17th December 2003.

The 3.4 GHz band was installed and the 10 GHz TX power was increased to 4 W by OH3LWP in June 2005.

Some bands were again QRT for a few weeks during the summer of 2005 due to another lightning strike. This time more suppressors were added, also in the lines coming from the tower to the rack in the shack. The beacon was restored fully operational August 15th by OH3MCK and OH3LWP.

The 24 GHz beacon was installed by OH3LWP and OH3MCK July 12th, 2006. The GPS reference was also updated then.

All other beacons except 24 GHz have been off the air twice during September/October 2006. The problem was traced to a bad connection at the fuse holder in the +17 volt supply. The faulty holder was replaced October 9th.


Reception reports

Please bear in mind that if the 13 cm beacon and the OH3RNE beacon at 1296.975 MHz are loud at your location, you may have an exceptional chance to receive the FM video transmissions of our ATV repeater on 1252.000 MHz, too.

We have picked up some exceptional reports of the beacon via DX Summit:
