Ed
One of the curses of our age! Too much information to read. I should have
searched more diligently for info on Fraser. He was indeed a remarkable person
and Joe is certainly a very deserving recipient of the FS award at the 14th
International EME Conference in Dallas.

The first Scottish 432MHz EME video on You Tube is very educational. (search on
You Tube 'G3LTF moon bounce')

Peter Blair, G3LTF, will be there to see the award presented to Joe, so
hopefully honour is restored?

I have resurrected my blog (access through my web page www.g4ddk.com ) and as
long as I have access to WiFi at the Conference I will post pictures of the
presentation, on the blog, as well as other aspects of the EME Conference. For
now I am enjoying the view of the tarmac at Toronto airport and taking advantage
of the free WiFi access!

Oh Dear Oh Dear,

I cannot believe I am reading this. I knew Fraser very well for many many years.
Fraser, GM3EGW and Harry GM3FYB were indeed incredible individuals. Please take
time to read my posting in this forum No. 21815 and look at the web link. It
highlights some of their activity in the 60's. lets not forget that Peter, G3LTF
was in the thick of it at that time as well and contributed immensely to the
progress in the VHF and microwave bands. He is still doing so today !

One thing I know for sure is that Fraser would have been honoured to present an
award to a person such as Joe Taylor.

Like Fraser and Harry, Joe has extended the boundaries of the art of
communication.

Hi,
just wondering if anyone has anywhere on a shelf a small coaxial relay, that they no longer need?
I am putting together (slowly, very slowly) a 23cm ATV transceiver and need a small coaxial relay to switch between Tx and RX. It would need to handle at most 18 - 25 watts, perhaps in the future.
If anyone has anything they think suitable please let me know, here is the bit you all where expecting finances are very limited, so would need to be, cheapish
(I wont explain but most of you know my circumstances and will understand).
Many thanks for reading

Angus, send me a PM with your contact details, I have a quantity of RLC Coax Switches P/N SR-TC-B-D (spec available on the web), I'll pop one in a bag for you FOC, they are 28V BTW.

Hope that helps

Thanks Ian..

Really interesting pdf file at that URL. I remember by the callsign now and I maybe worked him on 2m AM or CW in the early 60s. Must dig out the old paper logbooks:-)

Hi Rich,
 
I think I have what you need.
Cant remember just how wide it is, need to dig one out and try it.
 
Let me know if you still need it etc...

I'm on the scrounge again! I'm building a ADS-B receiver on 1090MHz. I have the LO and front end, but i am in need of a 70MHz filter. It needs to be about 10MHz wide. Does anyone have an old 34Mb microwave IF unit they do not want?

Re: 70MHz Filters

Hello Rich.

This is a bit of a "long shot" in more ways than one.....not the least of which is that I am here in Brisbane, Australia.

I have here a K&L bandpass filter model 7LB40-/DU25-0/0 that is surplus to my requirements - it was one of a relatively low cost 'grab bag' of "microwave" filters that I purchased on the 'black market' (as I call it), a few years ago.

I couldn't locate K&L data about it, but the markings that I wrote on it reveal (from my sweeping it) that its bandpass performance is 57 to 80 MHz. I suspect that these would be 3 or 6 dB down points. I have never thought of a useful use for it so your message prompted me to see if you are interested. (I could do a more detailed report of its 'shape' if you want.)

Sure, this is not the typical range of bandpass performance of a good 70 MHz IF amplifier but it may be of interest to you. I don't need any payment for it other than postage half way around the planet.

Do feel free to get back to me direct (uwaves@bigpond.com) if you think it may suit your purposes.

Very best wishes,

--Doug Friend, VK4OE.

p.s. If anyone can suggest a use for such a filter, I (and possibly others) will be interested!

Yes indeed

But look who's on the opening frame of the YouTube video from 1965 - a
very young G3LTF! Peter is clearly yer man to ask about Fraser Shepherd.

Folks,
we all know the Fraser Sheperd award given by the UKuG for amateur microwave work, but does anyone have any background information on who Fraser Shepard was and what his contribution to amateur microwave radio was about? It would be nice to have that info. RSGB seems unable to help with any real info.
It would be a shame for our many amateur radio OM personalities to slip away as just 'names'.

Hi

Does anyone know how to get hold of the admin for KST - the email address on the home page did not get a response, probably due to spamming.

We're looking to see if it would be possible to have a seperate chat room for ATV / DATV as there is renewed activity in 70cms DX working and reliable T/B would be useful without getting drowned out by the normal microwave traffic on KST during contests and busy times.

If possible we'd like to get it up and running in time for the ATV activity on August 22nd (same day as next 10GHz cumulative).
