I couldn't hear myself on it, which is very unusual.

After sending my note about not hearing CAM, I checked Bspot and then saw the red splodge. That explains matters...

Thanks for the heads up on CAM John.
Spent some mins looking for it earlier - should have looked at BS first .
Did encourage me to put the mast up a bit and was pleased to find GB3MCB on 10GHz.Not heard for some time here and it turns out my Pine tree is not helping - tree surgeon needed .

I believe 'CAM on 10GHz is off air. I spent some time listening for it on Friday, before finding the relevant info on Beaconspot.

All this 475 kHz is microwave compared with *proper* LF at 8270 Hz. Heh heh.

No sign of scatter on 10 GHz here at the moment, but there is a blanket
of drizzle to the south which is very absorbent. I can't even hear
GB3CAM, never mind KBQ/PKT/OSW.

I'm going back to the machine shop to bash some metal until the
troposphere bucks up its ideas.
