Hi,

I suggest we try to make this a BIG digital activity weekend (as happened in August last year) and get as many people on as possible.

Please pass the word around and encourage others - we should also post the weekend activities on to the various Yahoo groups.

I will hopefully be on 70cms DATV, 23cms ATV and DATV and 3cms ATV.

Best 73

The Grimsby team will be on over the weekend from RAF Stenigot.
With the addition of a high altitude balloon launch, weather permitting Saturday morning.
Live video and GPS RTTY data included with tracking on spacenear.us.
WE hope to stream the event live on GB3GG.

73s for now John.

Good stuff - lots of activity then ;-)

I asked Chris to put up a chat only page at BATC.TV, to keep the bandwidth down for mobile users, which we can use specifically for talkback (some of used GB3HV in August).

He has already responded with http://www.batc.tv/chat_only.php - let me have your comments and I'll feed them back to Chris - I'm trying to get him to do an ATV only KST type page!

We also need to put an email out on the UK microwave group and I've suggested to Dave G8GKQ that a BATC info email should go out as well...

look forward to seeing you all next week - my site should be good to the North on 70cms DATV ;-)
