With good band conditions comes the issue of big pile ups


Swaziland

On 21.037 working split listening 1 to 5 up

BIG Pileup !


His Calling frequency is on VFO A - and all the calling stations are above that frequency - my VFO B was where I last heard him work a call

The whole screen covers just 7 KHz

Hi Stella,

I'm happy to help Alan as assistant cashier if no one else is interested. My only concern is that I need to make a very early start Saturday (I'm driving at Amberley) so I'll need to get away promptly.

Kind regards
Dave M0LDP

To all members,

It would appear there is some confusion by members regarding the arrangements in place for our meetings, if you recollect that I posted 27th July regarding our return to regular Friday meetings, these have not changed.

 

Regarding the Surplus Equipment Sale planned for you the members we are planning to arrange the seating to please you (no legal requirement) also those that wish to wear masks that is your right.

We cannot stop anybody who has not been vaccinated from attending our meetings.

I hope this clarifies the situation as we have not had any revisions to the original conditions as to us using the hall.

 

The committee hope that all members who can make it on FRIDAY 22nd OCTOBER will attend to support this event as we try to put the past 18 months behind us and get back to pre COVID way of live so please if you feel you can assist in any way please reply to Stella as soon as possible.

 

Hoping to see you all there.

Meeting room safety

G4UDU Phil
 

I have been asked about the Covid safety measures that are in place at the Worthing club - some may consider them excessive - but they are safe

The meeting room there is owned and used by the sea cadets - so their principles set the rules, these are as follows:-



Due to the fact that the venue is currently used by un-vaccinated young people, the owners of the building insist on the following:

WADARC members only.
If you have any Covid 19 symptoms or have recently had a positive Covid 19 test – DO NOT attend the meeting.

You MUST have had both doses of a Covid 19 vaccine.
Masks WILL be worn before entering the building and kept in place until final exit. There is NO leeway on this rule.
Hands to be washed or sanitised when entering the building. Also recommended for exit.
A remote thermometer will be used at the entrance to check for possible Covid symptoms.
Door handles and other surfaces to be sanitised before and after use.

"Gatherings" to observe Social Distancing.

Where practicable, the back door may be left open to allow air flow and reduce the risk of Covid infection.

Club insurance is in place for member/member accident/injury. Covid 19 claims will NOT be considered.

Please note: The above rules have been made by the management of TSVanguard (Sea Cadets) and must be adhered to. They are not WADARC rules, although our committee thoroughly endorse them.
They are there for the protection of all people using the building.

Sorry folks, but no tea or biscuits will be served at this time, but hopefully this will change over time. Please bring your own refreshments for the time being.

I am helping clear some radio equipment for a silent key sale

This is one of more to come


Need all the bands in one place - It’s the “Shack in a Box” - Yaesu FT897D


The FT-897D is a rugged, innovative, multiband, multimode portable transceiver for the amateur radio MF/HF/VHF/UHF bands. Providing coverage of the 160-10 meter bands plus the 6 m, 2 m, and 70 cm bands, the FT-897 includes operation on the SSB, CW, AM, FM, and Digital modes, and it's capable of 20-Watt portable operation using internal batteries, or up to 100 Watts when using an external 13.8-volt DC power source.



RigPix Database - Yaesu - FT-897



Complete with box, power lead and instructions.     £350


You can add the additional internal batteries and filters - but as it stands it’s a lot of radio !

Now this is something I'm pretty sure you will not see again in a long time even if you have ever seen one !

This is a true spy radio as used by the SAS and the serial number on it is down to the allocated number for that Particular regiment, the only other users were the diplomatic wireless service.

A MK 123.  Complete with some accessories and the 12V inverter PSU and user plus service manuals.


It will require servicing, but if you would like to be the owner of something very rare.

If anyone is interested - and this will have to be a significant sum

Get in contact with me - last one on EBay over 2 years ago - not sure of condition sold for around £2000 and that’s was WITHOUT the inverter.
