Handewitt Perseus site
Since I've started putting up a remote reception site for the Perseus receiver, here is some info about it. It is located in Handewitt
(scroll down!), Schleswig-Holstein, in the very north of Germany, only 5 km from
the border to Denmark. The Perseus
is a software defined receiver for 0-40 MHz
with many options that
can be controlled remotely by everyone around the world who has the latest
Perseus 4.0b software
Actually, you can only obtain it (beyond trial mode) if you buy a receiver or at least plug one in once.
But it's a great device, I can only recommend it.
My Perseus server is on irregularly
, biggest chance on the weekends. Usually it is connected to an ALA1530S
magnetic loop antenna in random directions. It's installed about 7 meters above ground and 10 meters from
the house. Only fields to the west but some electric fences produce sparks, depending on the
humidity. So I suggest you put on the spark rejection
The strongest signal is the LORAN transmitter (pulsed signal for sea navigation) on 100 KHz.
Below you can see a 5 element FM
(88-108 MHz), and a 4 element for OIRT-FM
for sporadic E and MS (65-74 MHz, actually a channel E4 antenna).
Some interference by electric devices is always there, it's acceptable though. I get the best results in accu mode with my laptop but in server mode the PC is usually connected to AC.
If you look at the port
you can distinguish whether it's my PC (8014) or laptop HP Compaq 6715s (8015).
DSL upload bandwidth is max 500 kbps. You can access the Perseus via dymamic DNS (check both ports):
