Winner Challenge #2 – SPB144, a Special Beacon Project on 144 MHz
Mathias DH4FAJ and Andreas DJ5AR

Mathias and Andreas presented their idea SPB144:

For many decades radio amateurs are fascinated by the large variety of propagation modes in the 144 MHz band. From tropospheric ducting to different kinds of ionospheric reflections and combinations out of it so much is possible. The invention of digital modes and software defined radio equipment led to contacts, we only could dream about in the past. Experiences with a Synchronized Beacon Project in the 50 MHz band led to the idea to introduce a Special Beacon Project in the 144 MHz band to explore propagation modes on special paths with setups of beacons using digital modes and a net of automated receivers, monitoring 24⁄7 and uploading any receptions of interest to public available servers in the internet. This opens the potential for systematic analysis and citizen science.
