70.5-71.5 MHz Now Available to all Full Licensees

Post by g6jyb » Fri Jun 15, 2018 3:47 pm

The former tortuous SRP process is now no more for this one! :D

Its now like 146-147 MHz - just apply on line and get one instantly - provided you are not in or near Scotland (the same conditions still apply)

Please make sure its put to good use - and seen to be so !

That's great news, Murray, as it appears that the prior arrangement (SRPs) was tediously slow, and largely unsuccessful for the people who applied.

Maybe even someone for me to work! I have so far only managed QSOs with myself.

I had stopped working on this:

Now that we have easy access to, and are using, the spectrum I have moved the 71 MHz Activity topic to the Narrow Band DATV (RB-TV) Discussion Area. Great to see the activity.

Hi,

Before I start the layout of my up-converter , I would like something clarified. I have a 100MHz oscillator module which will drive a mixer fine giving me 171MHz output.Does the Minitioune continuously cover frequencies from 144 MHz up? Or, does it cover only pre-programmed discrete frequencies?
Thanks in anticipation,

Gordon (G3ZYL)

Gordon,
You can enter any frequency within its tuning range.
