As it is likely there will only be a few of us out next weekend we probably don't need a full day, so how do we feel about focussing the activity on Saturday - the rules say Sat 1pm to Sunday 7pm local.
If you are thinking of being on air on 50 or 70MHz, what do you think?
Suits me and I have 'booked' the weekend...

I'll have a good 4m setup and maybe something for 6m if i get round to it, possibly at IO94JF.
But it's no good because I cannot take part on either day. We’re taking Peter to start his degree at Sheffield University so are away all weekend. This is a blow because there's unlikely to be another event for a year on these frequencies. I suppose I'll have to drive south for a scheduled QSO with one or more of you to see if it works on another weekend.
All the best to everyone who does take part
I might get out portable a couple of days this week as i'm off work, it will be an evening though as daytime is generally poor for tropo.
I will probably go to Walbury Hill - IO91GI - and will have about 20 watts on 50 and 70MHz in to a Innovate Antennaes 6 ele beam https://www.innovantennas.com/en/shop-p ... ennas.html
Will also put up the 9 ele beam for Talkback so will have 146MHz RB-TV if anyone is interested.

A trophy will be awarded to the station with most points for the combined bands.
Please use the usual Excel spreadsheet and enter your 50MHz contacts in the 2m section
Logs to firstname.lastname@example.org as usual please.
I'll be on receive only on both bands if anyone wants to try East Yorkshire.
73 & good luck.
While I have a 3 el Yagi for 6m, anything south of east from here has a hill in the way - but never say never.
And while I can do 400W on CW on 6m, I don't have any way of amplifying my Mk1 Portsdown, Lime or Pluto - yet. Perhaps a project for the winter - I'm open to suggestions.
Good luck in the contest guys
