Re: Thankyou on 13cms tonight

Good to work you last night Robin. 

Running 20w from an SG-Labs SSPA, 75ft up, at masthead, to a 67-element Wimo. 
A very short 1-metre length of hardline to the driven element so virtually no loss.

I worked 12 locator squares, ODX 520km with GM4JTJ via aircraft scatter.

Got 2 meeps in last 2-minutes. If anyone wants an almost guaranteed QSO - do it earlier.

It was a bit grim from the bottom of the IO71 valley last night, in fact disastrous.

I was on KST & monitoring the beacons for most of last night waiting for RS which is my only real hope of getting out.

Normally I can hear nothing from down here, but at 2115 GB3KBQ & GB3SCX came up to S3 over a 90 deg quadrant with heavy lumpy rain overhead. Had G4UVZ Taunton been available we would have worked as we always do with rain. I then had to look on KST for my next most likely candidates, but they all seemed to be engaged, then it dried up at 2127 & my opening was over :(

Ben thanks for the QSO last night I enjoyed it somewhat the RS / multipath on 3cm was making it extremely hard with cw

Good to work you last night Ben. Think that was our first time on 3cm.

Thanks Chris and David. 

Yes, on your CW Chris I was getting very confused, it sounded like HH rather than 55, glad we managed on ssb.

My setup at the moment is Kuhne trvrt and 2W pa (2.5W) into 46cm PF dish which should have been about 55ft but sticking mast section made it lower.

Good to work you last night Ben. Think that was our first time on 3cm. 

My 50cm dish was up at 60ft above ground,, 13cm Yagi at 75ft. QTH is 700ft asl. Clear in nearly all directions.

IC-9700, Kuhne transverter, DL2AM PA, 5w, Procomm dish/feed, GPS locked, Positional accuracy around 2 degrees. 

On 3cm I worked 9 locator squares, IO81, IO82, IO83,  IO91, IO92 (4), IO93 (3), IO94, JO01, JO02 .... 14 qso's.

Ben thanks for the QSO last night I enjoyed it somewhat the RS / multipath on 3cm was making it extremely hard with cw often getting x3 or more of each dot dash.

This made it more fun we would not want it to easy HI (well maybe every so often)

Activity was good I felt and yes many failures but a few surprises im sure to.

All activity is good activity at shf spread the word.

Many thanks to those with who I worked, poor condx again I guess, seemed to see lots of failed qso's scrolling up on KST.

Missed out with XDY, BRK, HAJ, EML, PPA/P, LBK/P and DFL/P which would have made for a better score.

As I extended my mast one section would not budge after last Tuesday's rain had got to it so dish a Mtr lower than expected. 

cheers, Ben G4BXD

Good to work you last night – a decent signal under so-so conditions.

 

My biggest disappointment was the significant number of Meeps and QSO attempts that I could not fit within the contest period – sorry chaps. 3 hours is quite long enough to sit in the chair, yet I always run out of time !

A pleasure to finally work more than a couple of stations on 13cm tonight.   It really was quite horrible weather, so I worked it from home instead of up a hill, but did manage 12 contacts and  odx of 222km,  best yet!

OK Nick. Will do. I will be up on the hill with 13cm / 3 ele / 2.5w  and 9cm / 5 ele / 3 w.  KST should be ok by phone.  Is Chris M0KPW? out too

Hi Andy,

If you see me on KST, please Meep me. It's should be quite an easy path, just across the Irish sea to Cumbria, even with my low power, 2.5w and 27 ele.

I'll either setup from home on the drive or if I can raise the enthusiasm, I'll pop out to a high spot for an hour.

13cm, 50W,  location still to be decided.  Looking at the weather forecast, I don't fancy going too far up a hill ... but I am interested to try 13cm from a good spot.  I will be on KST.

I should be on 3cm unless the wind gets a lot worse.

Forecast suggests isolated heavy showers over North Yorks, which could be good for RS into GM/GD/GI. South-west also looks good.

I am blocked by trees in the direction of IO91 and parts of 92, so will be looking for scatterpoints over towards Shropshire/GW.

Happy to do ultra-slow CW with lots of repeats for anyone who isn't a native CWer, or use the permitted digimodes for anyone so inclined.

I will always listen after completing a QSO on my run frequency before swinging the dish, and will try to remember to give a QSY frequency if it is someone else's run freq, so if you hear me in QSO,  please feel free to shout. I'm not doing any other bands, so it isn't like I'll be busy. I'm always happy to try even hopeless-seeming paths and wildly off-axis reflections and backscatter.

IO93NR08, 10 W to a 95 cm offset at 13 m agl, KST and Zello.

Hi All

I can be QRV on and off this evening   if anyone wants to test please let me know Zello or KST

I shall be around tonight for 3cm (4w 0.7m dish) from home. I can only get out with RS & it looks promising tonight. With rain I can work G4UVZ Taunton & hear SCX & KBQ, and that is firing into the hillside, so rain is a prerequisite.

You will be surprised some times how well these bands travel. Maybe that you rx us but we do not rx you but still always worth a try.

Also think conditions maybe a bit dire so dont be put off if its a fail.

Try listening for Leicester Beacon on 13cms 2320.955 +- drift

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.
