Re: QO-100 Tomorrow

Nick Gregory G0HIK
 

Once again many thanks to all who contacted me with especial thanks to Graham G3VKV for always taking the time to be there.

Sorry I missed you Phil.

After a tough start, the quick post on here did the trick and from then on, I was kept busy for the next hour with 10 nice QSO's in the log and the battery almost exhausted, down to 10.8 volts.

It was a five mile round trip so worked off the calories from the weekend, with Strava telling my the count was 1000 calories and they dont allow for the rucsac !

Absolutely no view from this summit, with the plantation grown up, not how Beatrix Potter would have seen it.

But just enough clearance to aim over the tree's to access the satellite.

The weather is not playing ball this week for any more activity though.

I'm hoping to be out again tomorrow with the portable QO-100 kit.

Claife heights near to the old Radio College of Wray Castle.

The summit is very small and surrounded by tree's, but G4VFL says there is a gap in the tree's at just the right QTF.

Hoping to be setup around 10:15 UTC.

Re: Denis G3UVR SK

Ken Linney
 

Very sorry to hear the news about Denis. I used to work him on Top Band AM in the 60's.
Along with good friend Brian G3VWH Denis was lead guitarist in a 60's group The Radicals.
He was a great operator on cw. 

Condolences to the family... 

Ken G3UDA


Tuesday 3.4GHz

John Worsnop
 

Hi folks,
I plan to be QRV on 9 (and 3cm) for the last 30 minutes or so of Tuesday night's SHF UKAC contest. (maybe earlier if condx are up)
Look for me on KST if you'd like a try.

70W to 60cm dish, JO02CG on 9cm

If I get enough bits of mine bolted together, I'll be on.  You'll hear me ;)   I'm trying to decide between running 50W in the restricted or 170W in Open ... not sure which will net more points.

I may be out /P on Sunday night checking out a new site ...

Hi Mike, I replied direct before, so I guess it must have been blocked somewhere.  I suspect there are spammers using the same server farm where my hosting provider runs my email and web service, so my mails do get blocked by some providers from time to time. Hope this reaches you OK.

I'll take you off the order list for the transitions.   Replying direct and on the forum just to be sure.

I'll be making up a batch of SMA to WR90 transitions over the weekend, as I've now received the 8 mm radiused-corner centre cutting three-flute carbide slot drills from Cutwel.

I was hearing OZ5UHF on 3cm very loud an hour ago, just had an easy contact on the band with OZ2OE, but I think the duct is moving south, DB0VC on 3cm came up quite strong for a while, but I'm losing that now. Might be dipping south.
