Great to make contact with you all yesterday evening . Very good pics received from Jim and Malcolm on 23cms DATV.
We will be looking out for you next Monday evening with hopefully a bigger signal from this end.

Thanks for setting this up Jim; it was an enjoyable evening. While local obstacles prevented me from using 23cms I hope to do better next week on 437MHz. Thanks to the Kettering net. Jim (G7NTG), Malcolm (G7HPE), Alan (G4HND), John (G3ZSE) and Pete (G6OLU).

Hi Jim
Your pics on 70cms with just 10w were very good this evening.
I have attached pics for the 333ks/s and 1000ks/s showing the signal strength received.
Also a pic from my masthead camera to show the takeoff in your direction.

Another good evening on terrestrial DATV was had yesterday. For the last 3 weeks the Luton/Dunstable group have joined up with the Kettering net for DATV activity on 23 and 70cms. We start around 7:30pm Monday evenings and we are keen to expand the net if you're in range. Call into Jim G7NTG on 144.750 if you would like to join in. If you have 4 metres try 70.450.
