Geocache Description:

So "auf der Bühne"....das ist schwierig: vielleicht besser nachts? ------ So "just on a stage"....that is difficult:may be better by night?

Der Cache liegt in der Nähe einer Amateurfunkstation. Antennen auf den Dächern der umliegenden Häuser zeigen an, daß man "richtig" ist. Der Cache beinhaltet ein wenig Elektronikzubehör. Die Nachbarn sind informiert, also keine "Angst" vor Muggels. Aber bitte seid vorsichtig mit der Natur! 
Die exakten Koordinaten ergeben sich nach Lösung der folgenden Aufgabe: Was bedeuten die folgenden Amateurfunkabkürzungen? Die richtigen Lösungen müssen ausführlich geschrieben werden! Zur Lösung sind natürlich nur die 10 ausgwählten Ziffern erforderlich....der Rest ist "just for fun". Aus der angegebenen Zuordnung können die Koordinaten exakt ermittelt werden.
Ein Beispiel - 25.) VFO 2.W./1.B.
- soll das genauer erklären: Lösung: VFO = Variable Frequency Oscillator - 2.W(ort)/1.B.(uchstabe) ist ein F, d.h. F bedeutet nach der Zuordnungstabelle als Zahl eine 6! s.u…Als Hilfe werden die ersten zwei der jeweils gesuchten 5 Ziffern der N und E Koordinaten dekodiert....damit man weiß, "wie es geht."
 
 
 
Koordinaten N:
17.) AFSK - 4.W./1.B. - Audio Frequency Shift Keying - K=0
11.) VHF - 2.W./1.B.- Very High Frequency - H=8
16.) DARC - 4.W./1.B. -
12.) IARU - 1.W./1.B.
23.) IF - 1.W./1.B.
 
Koordinaten E:
21.) GD - 2.W./1.B. - Good Day- D=4
02.) OSCAR - 5.W./3.B. - Orbiting Satellite Carrying Amateur Radio- D=4
15.) CW - 1.W./5.B.
07.) PSK - 3.W./ 1.B.
08.) SSB- 3.W./1.B

The Cache lies near an  amateur radio station. . Aerials on the roofs of the surrounding houses register that one is "right. It contains a little electronics accessories. Neighbours have got information, so don't worry about Muggles! But please be careful with the nature!

The exact co-ordinates arise after solution of the following task: What do signify the following amateur radio abbreviations? For the solution you must of course solve only the  10  chosen figures  .... the rest is "just for fun". The right solutions must be written in detail! From the given allocation the co-ordinates can be determined precisely.

An example - 25.) VFO - 2.W/1.L.. - this should more exactly explain: Solution: VFO = Variable Frequency Oscillator - 2.W.(ord)/1.L.(etter) is an F. i.e. and the following signifies after the allocation table as a number 6! see below......As a help the first two abbreviations of the N and E Co-ordinates are solved in order to let you know how "it works".

Co-ordinates N:

17.) AFSK - 4.W./1.L. - Audio Frequency Shift Keying - K=0

11.) VHF - 2.W./1.L. -Very High Frequency - H=8

16.) DARC - 4.W./1.L.

12.) IARU- 1.W./1.L.

23.) IF - 1.W./1.L.

 

Co-ordinates E:

21.) GD - 2.W./1.L. - Good Day - D=4

02.) OSCAR - 5.W./3.L. - Orbiting Satellite Carrying Amateur Radio - D=4

15.) CW - 1.W./5.L.

07.) PSK - 3.W./ 1.L.

08.) SSB- 3.W./1.L.
