Ken G4BVK will be at Westbury White Horse, Wiltshire, IO81WG, on Sunday from about 1030am onwards. He will have 71 & 146.5MHz, talkback 144.750MHz horizontal & Zello.
GW8VPG/P will be on the Blorenge, South Wales, IO81LS, on Sunday from about 11.00am onwards. I will have 71 & 146.5MHz, talkback 144.750MHz horizontal & Zello. If anyone is operating 5.6GHz, would they please let me know because I have a new receiver that I would like to try out. I will take 5.6GHz only if someone lets me know before.
73 Shaun G8VPG.

Just to confirm I will be at Walbury tomorrow at 2pm just to work G4FRE on 71MHz unless anyone requests a sched.

I will also be there on Sunday with 71 and 146MHz plus 24 and 76GHz.

Talkback via 144.750 / mobile / Zello

I hope to be on from home IO80EK98 at various times over the weekend. If I can find my patch leads and finish the 71MHz PA I should be on 146.5MHz and 71MHz Tx and Rx.

I will be monitoring 144.750MHz and the WhatsApp group. I am also available on 07802 200920 if all else fails.

I will listen for both of you - 2m and 4m. It's too far for 24GHz unless line of sight.

Hi John,

Just to say Win Green is no good for 71 MHz RX as there’s a beacon on 4m only 13 km away.

71MHz received over the 135km IO91GI to IO82LB path. Lot of signal in hand

Antenna 5 ele at 15'. Modified G4DDK Anglian transverter into Minituner at 437MHz.

With that in mind a change of plan I'll go to lane end, which is east of Winchester. Hope to be on site by 10am.
