As well as trying to get as many stations on the air using their own gear on Long Mynd, there is an opportunity for us to operate on some of the other bands but it will be good to know in advance what gear to take up.

71MHz - Will take my simple set up (anyone got a beam we can borrow?)
146MHz - there will be gear on site
437MHz - there will be gear on site
23cms - without scheds probably will not take the gear.
13cms - without scheds will not take the gear.
9cms - without scheds will not take the gear.
5.6Ghz - yes
10GHz - be keen to try any long paths but without scheds will not take the gear.
24GHz - even more keen to try any long paths but without scheds will not take the gear (happy to have NB scheds).
76GHz - be keen to try any realistic paths (~20Kms) but without scheds will not take the gear.

Talkback via 144.750, mobile and various Zello channels

do you have a locator for the Long Myndd site so I can check path visibility?

I hope to be active on Sunday from IO94MJ, it's looking like everyone will be too far away but will give it a try anyhow ;-)

Barry G8AGN,

If you're going to be at Merryton Low, there's a good chance I'll be able to work you on 6cm from my home QTH in Birkenhead, IO83LI69JJ. I'll be around until 15:15.

I am up on Winter Hill with 2m and 70cm and 23cm.

The path seems line of sight - probably good on 10GHz and 24 GHz if I had it with me. Its 119km long, bearing 11 degrees.

I plan to be in Upper Colwall in the Malvern Hills (IO82TB) from 1000BST tomorrow.

437MHZ DATV
Talkback on 144.750MHz, mobile 07754 915272 and Zello

If I'm successful working Long Mynd from there, I may relocate later to Broadway Tower (IO92BA).
