Activity weekend 15/16 May - who - where -on what?

Post by radiogareth » Tue Apr 27, 2021 7:37 pm

Trying to plan ahead here and hoping for a double day out in my camper/radio truck. All bands advertised but which ones??
Got to be a good chance to test DVB-T in the wild, (50-437) but who else is going out and with what?
I can also now muster a decent 2.4GHz and 3.4GHz station (DATV or NB).
Location will be SE London Woldingham Ridge IO91XH 700' ASL.

Hi Gareth

I do intend to be out - probably Saturday and Sunday PM and will be using it as a practice for the contest in June so as many bands as possible, having not been out all this year!

Location possibly Walbury....

BTW - Planning to be out this weekend on Narrow Band as there are microwave 3 contests:

IARU region 1 (RSGB) 432 and up - Saturday and Sunday (used to be a big event in the microwave calendar)

RSGB 10 GHz trophy - Sunday

UK Microwave group - 13, 2.3 and 3.4 GHz on Sunday (good opportunity to try your 2.3 and 3.4 GHz NB kit as there will be people on within range).

Perhaps I will be up on Winter Hill, 2/70/23. Perhaps not.

Thanks Noel, unfortunately I have a family get-together booked on the Sunday, but I could escape locally on Saturday with 3.4GHz NB.
Is there a microwave activity forum for pre-arranging things?

Well, I've dusted off my Portsdown and done a software upgrade. So I guess I have no excuse not to be out and about on the 15/16th ;-)

Probably Lane End IO91ja on the Saturday and Hoggs Back Layby IO91pf on the Sunday. 70cm and 23cm DATV.

Looks like I will only be able to get out on Sunday 16th now, so will make that Lane End IO91ja.
