136,30 KHZ beacon

136 Khz new band in GREECE.
Yesterday 05/01/2012 started for 1st time to TX on 136Khz in beacon style, temporary, just for testing the equipment and the antenna..
For the moment the antenna is a delta loop with total lenght 80m and a toroidal transformer. The results are not good but my signal was heard at about 10 Km far from QTH. Next days I will change the antenna with an INV "L"  25m vertical and 50m horizontal , or better with a "T" type Marconi and adding the loading coil  with variometer.
A very interesting site for LF antennas is here:
The transceiver (transmitter with converter in 10 Mhz) is a YUMA  TX136.
Hope to see you soon on 136 Khz.
