Re: New user to 13cm an 9cm. NOV question for UK use.

Chris will do.

I may yet be stopped by the weather. 50 mph winds, but dry is the forecast.  Wind I can deal with, but rain... nothing is in a water resistant case yet. 

I'll have 3watts maximum.  3 ele yagi on 13cm, 5 ele on 9cm. Just one contact would be nice to show they work. You may be too far, but I'll meep you.

Hi Andy give me a meep for a try if you want on 13 and 9

Thanks Murray G6JYB & Martin GM8IEM for the direction.

I have sent the email to PSSRAMATEURS(AT)Ofcom.org.uk and applied for an NOV for the lower end (I know that portion is not allowed in GD but felt registering there can do no harm).

So I am good to go for tonight's UKAC, hopefully a relative local to me will be 'workable' with KST help.

Hi David, 

Sounds a lot of fun! I'll be on 3, 6, 9cm from Walbury Hill tonight. Hope to find you on KST or Zello (SHF Chat). 

Its going to be another wet and windy session unfortunately! Hopefully a few will still go out or be on from home. 

.100 is the centre of activity on 3cm. Your best bet will be KST, or to tail end any QSOs you can hear. People normally listen before leaving GHz frequencies in case there are other QSOs to be had! ...So do call in!

Hope you get some QSOs, and always happy to try.

Regards..Pete

Nearly right
There remains a requirement to register all operations in the std 13cm section (2310-2350) as well - see the quick link on the UKuG home page, esp as you are right under the PU flight path

New user to 13cm an 9cm. NOV question for UK use.

Andy GD1MIP
 

Folks, I have now got working transverters for 13cm and 9cm.
Only 3 watts to small PCB yagi's, but a start (1.2m dish next).

I plan to try them out tomorrow (27/10/2020) in the UKAC as hopefully I may hear someone. That lead to me checking the band plan.
As a full licence holder,  as  I understand it...

13cm.   Is split into two sections.
2300 - 2302MHz is an NOV area only with no IOM / GD access. So not for me.
2310 - 2450MHz  No NOV required  or IOM restriction.

9cm.
3400 3410MHz again no NOV or IOM restriction.

Have I got it correct?  If so I hope to hear some of you soon.

Thanks Andy GD1MIP


Underslung dish

Conrad, PA5Y
 

I have a 2m dish that I would like to put on my tower without destroying the pattern of 2 x 12 ele 144 MHz yagis. I have a feeling that having the dish at 90 deg to the yagis will be better. I wonder if the dish is offset from centre and then rotated about the mast below the head unit this will be possible. I would support the lower part of the pole used to support the dish with a ring with slip bearings. This would allow me to get on 13cms as well.

Is there any reason why this cannot work?

The 2m antennas must not be compromised too much.

Hi Paul

Long time no speak. Warwick Uni was a long time ago

Much to catch up on.  Still living in GM, still playing radio, MF, 6m and up to literally light as time permits but grandchildren  keep Serena and me busy

Still using the JVL transverter on 3cm HI, im sure you remember that era

What is the Microwave group "Activity Weekend" ?

What is the Microwave group "Activity Weekend" ? as it's on their calendar for this weekend.

The weather is reasonable, I'm wondering if it's worth taking 23cm's out for an hour this after noon

Re: manual for Coutant ML100 PSU please

Nick Gregory G0HIK
 

Many Thanks, that worked really well.

I adjusted the output voltages, till both PSU's drew the same current.

I used a bridge rectifier for the blocking diodes, but guess Schottky will be best.

I suspect I am several 10's of khz adrift ...   I really need to find a way to injection lock the txvtr to a GPSDO, too many other projects on the go at the moment though.

It is a bit off as well Robin, I'll check the exact offset relative to mine, which is GPS locked.
