I am planning to take some radio gear over and hope to be able to squeeze in some portable operation between sightseeing in the days before and after the convention.
The current plan is Wed - Fri April 15/15/17th when I'll be in the Wicklow moutains area just south of Dublin and Mon / Tues April 20 / 21st from the Waterford area. I think Wicklow is an easy path to North Wales, Nothern England, southern Scotland and possibly NI and Waterford should go to South Wales, Devon and Cornwall.
I'm hoping to do some NB microwave operation but would also like to do some TV - exactly what and which bands depends upon interest before the event. I am equipped for all bands between 50MHz and 24GHz - I could operate on 60 MHz but not 146MHz as it is not licensed in EI. I'm also tempted to take NB Oscar100 as most squares in EI do not seem to have been activated
So is anyone prepared to go out /p - if so let me know by the end of Feb so I can start to plan what to take. I'd also be interested in any information regarding good drive on VHF/UHF radio sites in EI.
