Hi Rob,

This may work very well for me if I can organise it - we are booked to go to a campsite in JO02PU next week but were planning to leave on Friday :-(

However, I have just extended the stay so we will be there until 5pm UK or 4pm UTC on Saturday afternoon :-) I now need to work out how to get all the ATV gear in the car as well as the family holiday gear!

The plan is that I would be active on 50MHz and 144 / 146 MHz for the first 4 hours of the contest - it would be good to line up some contacts so time is not wasted. Talkback would mobile phone / Zello and maybe 144.750 horizontal.

I will confirm before Monday what I have managed to hide in the car :-)

Nice that there is activity during the contest from the UK. I will put a QRV list on the VERON website of the stations that I know are QRV. I'll post a link here when that's ready.
I know quite a lot of stations are preparing for the DATV contest and will be qrv at 2m, 6m and 70cm.
I have received an email from F4VSG (JN37BX) and he will be qrv, also on 6m DATV with a good station.

In August 2020 at least 30 stations were active at only 2m: G4YTV, ON7MOR, PA0BOJ, PA0CDY, PA0JCA, PA0T, PA1RHQ, PA1SDB, PA3ARK, PA3BYV, PA2HOS, PA3FXB, PA3GLL, PA3GUO, PA3JEM, PA4GB, PA800D, PB1S, PC4C, PD0SAU, PE1ASH, PE1BR, PE1CVE, PE1DWQ, PE1ITR/p, PE1IWT, PE1MPZ, PE2HHN, PE2JKO, PE2TV.


I will be QRV from home:
6m: 5el yagi, 30w DATV output. 51.7 MHz on saturday. On sunday I change antenna's to 2m and 70cm
2m: 10el yagi, 300w DATV on 144.600 MHz.
70m: 16el, 300w DATV.
