2m - 50W to 13element Tonna HORIZONTAL (Talkback)
70cm - 50W to 48 element Jaybeam (will take digital rx also if anyone going to be qrv?)
23cm - 100W to 2x28 element Loopyagi
13cm - 25W to 60cm Dish
3cm - A 'few' Watts to 60cm dish
Who esle is going to be QRV?
Any local stations like to join in the fun??
Not sure where I will go, but I'll have a think about this over the weekend.
432 MHz antenna now refurbished and ready to go for contest.
We also will be giving away points for the 144MHz backpacker contest as well, it should be a busy day!
All we need is the WX, how do we arrange that?
John, maybe qso via aircraft reflection who knows.!! used to get it strong on YT before it went off....
We're going to try some 23cm Narrowband after the contest if anyone interested in that also.
Hoping for a few ATV Contacts as the last outing was not too productive....... but great fun
I can normally work NY Moors from Portsdown on SSB on 3cm but Walbury will be a better bet for both bands.
70cm DATV will be 2MS/s.
2mtr talkback with 25W to 5element.

Thanks for the info on your digital setup, I will definately take the 70cm Digital Receive then...hi
I can't really transmit any digital at the moment but we will have 3cm so that maybe possible...who knows..hi
Weather is looking really good
My partner has invited one of her friends, who apparently is going through a bad patch, as a house guest this weekend. That means that I probably wont be able to escape to a hill, especially as I was planning to finish off boxing the PA today and I now have to clear the spare bedroom. In addition, as the spare bedroom is also my shack, I doubt if I will even be able to be on from home...
