Oct 14th/Oct 15th Activity Weekend

Post by M0DTS » Thu Oct 12, 2023 9:10 am

I'm planning to be out portable with 2m and 23cm from IO94LI on Sunday.
10am till 3pm at the latest.

No tropo forecast so it'll be hard work - nothing unusual there then.

Anyone else joining in?

it's going to be quiet in the EY service area as Sunday is the Hornsea Rally at the Driffield Showground.

I'll be there twisting arms to get subs in for the repeater group and demonstrating the new all digital GB3EY Rx/Controller/Tx modulator/streamer.

G4YV and G0AZQ will be supporting the Hornsea Club.

Unfortunate clash caused by the CAt Part1 requiring activity weekends to be changed.

Guess it's going to be a quiet one then!

Clear skies later so maybe I'll just go and stop the night and do a bit of star gazing instead.
I'll put antennas up just in case anyone appears, will be on Zello and 144.750.

Been years since I've seen any dark sky, beginning to crave some now....can just about see the moon and any planets down here, the rest is lost :-(

I've set up BandViewer and a Ryde to 146.5 with an 11 element Tonna pointed your way Rob. I'll keep an eye on things while I'm in the shack and log into Zello after 10:00.

I know we've tried many times before but one day...

Sorry Martin I didn't see that!
I setup some antennas last night but conditions flat as can be.

Hopefully next time...

Good light propagation from the milky way though, taken with my phone!
