Activity Weekend 16/17 November

Post by M0DHP » Wed Nov 13, 2019 10:25 am

The weather forecast for Sunday looks dry, so I'm hoping to go /P with 23cm and 70cm DATV somewhere in the south or southeast of England. Is anyone else planning to be out and about this weekend?

I'm hoping to be out and about too, might be able to do RX on 23 & 70 and TRX on 4M & 2.
Woldingham in Surrey, good LOS in all directions.

I'm going to be out on Sunday, from Hannington (IO91JH) - there's a NB contest for 23,13 and 9cms - but can also go out on Saturday if anyone wants some tests.

For DATV, bands are TBD but could be anything from 50MHz to 76Ghz depending on others are doing but 146 and 70cms likley.

I'm hoping to try out Garrowby Hill, N/E of York on Sunday weather permitting..

Or if I'm feeling plain lazy.. just at the end of my driveway again, Gary M1EGI and meself did pretty well on 23cms and 5.6GHz at our last outing.

I've got 5.6GHz RX and a Heath Robinson TX sorted this time too.

I have arranged a decent camera and have paid a bit more attention to the sound channel too this week. I might even take the Laptop to be able to use DXSpot.

The forecast is in, and it looks like a washout for us here... Ah well, maybe see you's in December..

I've a bit more time to perfect the 5.6GHz.

Hope to be on the air on 2m from the village of Roade which is just south of Northampton, on Saturday AM and hopefully most of the day on Sunday.

Weather forecast looks good (if chilly), so I will be at either Cheesefoot Head (IO91JB) or Lane End (IO91JA) on Sunday from 0900 - 1400. Contactable on 2m talkback and mobile 07754 915272.

@Noel, any chance you could take 23cm DATV with you? I have not yet done a proper test on TX and RX of my 23cm setup.

Hi Ray and Noel

I'll be out at West Dean near Salisbury on Sunday at about 11am and will have 23 cms DATV with 144 MHz talkback. And maybe a few other bands.

So that should be a good path from Lane End or Cheesefoot Ray.
