January activity anyone?

Post by radiogareth » Thu Jan 02, 2020 2:22 pm

Happy new year to all our viewers :-)
Anyone planning on activity for the January 11/12 weekend?
I can do 2M (and 4M at a pinch), also FM ATV on 5.6GHz all from my usual location IO91XH Woldingham Surrey.

I have looked around on 11th and the morning of the 12th, I have not seen anything either on air or via the web apart from GB2RS. I will keep looking during the afternoon of the 12th.
