Please world the club postpone the Easter weekend activity and contest? I think it's the sort of activity that's not now permitted. Pity I was looking forward to a solo day at Titterstone Clee Hill car park.

Stay safe

As it stands now I guess all portable working is not allowed under the current government directive, but shouldn't stop activity from home even /p from the back garden might be fun?

Exactly. Activity from home is fine but we should not be going out portable. I know that's hard on those who can't operate from home, or prefer to go portable, but there are much much bigger things at stake here. Perhaps we should no longer call it a contest and transfer to just activity.

Understandable not going portable. Living in a naff spot for VHF but I have an excuse now to put up the 'portable' SCAM 45' and use my freshly finished LFA 5 element on 4, plus one for 6 soon too.
On a brighter note I could hear the Dunstable Downs CLub station on 2m the other day using a new full wave I've built and its only at 3m AGL in my garden.

G4DDC clubroom is in a listed property so antennas are in the roof space, your antenna must be working well.

Due to the COVID 19 Crisis, we have dropped plans for the Microwave ATV Contest on 11/12 April. This will be replaced by an all-bands home-QTH-only Activity Weekend.

I'm awaiting IARU guidance of the International ATV Contest, but would hope that it will go ahead as a home-QTH-only contest.

11th & 12th April – Activity Weekend
16th & 17th May – Activity Weekend
1200 UTC 13 June – 1800 UTC 14 June – IARU International ATV Contest

I can now confirm that the IARU ATV Contest on 13/14 June is planned to go ahead as a single-operator stay-at-home event.

Be good if we could arrange to have a 2nd event, possibly in September, which allows for portable operation?
