    Maybe you folks have already seen this, but if you're going to build a variometer for a short Marconi - these will definitely help:

    My advice is to keep an eye on the "hot-side" variometer voltage (depending of configuration this could easily breech 10kV). This will give you an idea of what kind of isolation you'll need for anything connected to the antenna element(s).

    137.385 kHz (just below WSPR) is kind of the informal JT9 meeting place in New England. Be prepared to use JT9-1, 2, 5, or 10. You can easily tell which is in use by observing the time domain in a waterfall.

    Good luck lowfers !
