Activity Weekend 17-18 November

Post by g8vpg » Mon Nov 12, 2018 10:31 pm

The forecasts are showing some fairly strong tropo over the weekend 17-18 November. Is anyone planning to be out portable?

I'm hoping to be on from home over the weekend. I have 23cm, 70cm and 2m on the mast at the moment. Condx don't look too bad so hopefully work a few stations. QRA is IO80EK98

G6AUR & myself will out portable tomorrow, Saturday 16 November, from about 11.00am, at Penn Hill on the Mendips, IO81QF. I will have 4m, 2m & 5.6GHz. The tropo forecast looks very promising so it could be worthwhile coming on even if your location is not too good.

Hi

I will be out from about 1330 until 1600 on Saturday at Lane End near Winchester IO91JA.

Planning on taking 5.6 GHz and 146. Talkback 144.75.

I know that there is a reasonable path from there to Rob. It's not too bad to the W/SW either.

Sadly working Saturday and have a family commitment on Sunday. Good luck to all those that are going to be out.

All best John G7JTT

Conditions were up today (Saturday) as viewed from Winchester IO94JI , but not by much.

I spoke to Rob M0DTS/P on 144.75 at 374 km, but we did not succeed with FM TV on 5.6 GHz (Rob's only band today).

I received 146.5 MHz 333KS H265 pictures briefly from Shuan G8VPG/P at 101 km, but he could not see me (even after I had connected power on to my PA - sorry Shaun!)

I spoke to Malcom G0UHY in Devon 182 km away, but he was also weak. I could not raise M0SKM or G4CPE, although I had heard that they were active.

The weather and views were stunning - and at least I saw some pictures. A good afternoon!
