Subject: [ukmicrowaves] November 23cm UK Activity Contest - Reminder


Hi all,

The penultimate 23cm UK Activity Contest of 2011 takes place tomorrow evening, Tuesday 15th between 8pm and 10.30pm.
Last weeks 432MHz event has so far generated 90 entries, the 3rd highest this year. It is interesting to note that the 23cm events have followed a very similar fluctuation in numbers so hopefully we'll so no difference this month and hence a bumper level of participation on 23cm.

The good conditions experienced predominantly in the south east on 23cm to OZ, SM, LY, SP and DL the past number of days appears to be including other areas of the UK gradually and hopefully this will continue Tuesday.
It could make for a very interesting evening with some very good DX to be worked yet always mindful of the need to pick up the UK square multipliers as well.

The current dry spell (rare in Scotland this year!) may produce a last flurry of portable stations. Alan GM0USI is 90% sure of activating IO76XA running 30w to a 1.5m dish + LNA and will be in massive demand if he gets into a duct.
I will be active from home running 150w to 4x44 + LNA and available on KST for schedules.

May your log pages be bursting at the seams :-)
