GB3AMU

Ian Lamb <ianlamb@...>
 

Well done Keith & please also pass on my thanks to Phil GW3PPF
for his efforts. This will hopefully encourage more local activity and
interest.

Fingers crossed for some more beacon licenses in the near future!

G8KQW


GB3AMU has been on "engineering test" since 29th September 2006, on the
new frequency of 24048.940Mhz.
We have checked the signal from various sites locally, and at
Tog Hill in England. The radiation pattern appears to agree closely
with the design.
As of 11th December 2006 the beacon is radiating normally and not
liable to intentional interruptions!
Reports welcome, to Phil GW3PPF QTHR, or Keith GW3TKH
(gw3tkh@aol.com <mailto:gw3tkh%40aol.com> ).

Keith,
GW3TKH

Subject: [ukmicrowaves] a funny thing happened whilst I was ...........

There I was, poised with a 0805 resistor between my sharp pointed
tweezers, which I had just salvaged from a scrap pcb, when my wife
walked in, saying that our household insurance did indeed cover the
antenna and rotator I lost in the storm this week.

The result of that statement was a 0805 resistor pinging away from my
sight and tweezers at the speed of light, never to be found again.
I was not sure if I should give her the verbals for making me loose my
precious component, but decided that the news was worth the loss.

So,While my heart rate decends back to normal, and I continue with my
salvaging task, my mind is racing ahead with what I will do with the
insurnace payout.

Good news does occasionaly surface in my neck of the woods

Scatterpoint Jan 2007

Peter Day <microwaves@...>
 

I posted the printed Scatterpoints on Friday 19th Jan by first class mail. Most UK subscribers should have received it by now but some may get theirs on Monday.

The email edition was sent around 1130z on Saturday, 20th Jan. If you haven't got your yet please wait until Wednesday morning before telling me as last month saw a number of delays in cycberspace :-)

Please DO NOT reply to this email unless you have not received Scatterpoint by the middle of this week.

Those of you outside the UK who take the printed newsletter should wait until this time next week.

Many thanks,

Peter, G3PHO

Re: 24GHz/10GHz winter UKuG Contest. Sunday 28 January 07

GM6VXB
 

I was out for the previous event, but testing my 10GHz system with MM0DQP. Proved we both have a bit more to do to get a good system.
 
I will be out, weather permitting, in IO97CM, Stirling Hill, near Peterhead on 10GHz, with talkback, listening 144.175 plus or minus birdies, and will also have my mobile phone 07779 207392. No KST, but will put out a message pre going portable.
I don't expect to work anyone as I (and Eric MM0DQP) am too far north, but it is proving good fun setting up a portable system with minimal test equipment. Yet to hear anything other than MM0DQP in IO88.
Set up for 10GHz: DB6NT transverter + 10 Watt DB6NT HPA + 0.75dB DB6NT LNA + 80Cm offset dish.
Talkback IC-706MKIIG + BNOS 160Watt PA + 9 el F9FT at 6M AGL

24GHz/10GHz winter UKuG Contest. Sunday 28 January 07
=====================================================
Times: 1300-1700GMT

Full rules are in January 2007 Scatterpoint and on the UKuG website at
www.microwavers.org

The first of these winter "contests",held last weekend, was very
poorly supported so let's have some of you out and active this coming
Sunday :-) If you do operate in this event please send in your log to
Steve, G4KNZ, no matter how small the "tally".

To whet your appetite, I expect to be QRV from the rare JO03 square
with both 24GHz and 10GHz. I tried this last year and managed a nice
168km path to G4EAT but hope to be able to work stations to the SE of
my location, which will be to the SE of Horncastle in South Lincs. If
time allows I'll move NW to the Lincoln Wolds/Lincoln Edge region and
try from there also, in IO93 square.

Gordon, G0EWN, tells me he can't be on as he will be hurtling down the
black runs at some Eu ski resort at the time!

All this is weather permitting. I wont be out if there's snow, heavy
rain, etc.

Please let me have your operational details in the following format
and I'll put out an activity list mid week and again on Friday.

Mmmm...yes, Peter, I read Ian's emails after I'd posted my comments!
 
You're absolutely right, money does flow like water out of the pocket/bank account/whatever - how can this bloody Government possibly say that the inflation rate is 2.xx percent (or whatever) when it's plainly, by any sensible estimate, at least three times this?
 
BTW, tnx fer Scatterpoint, received safe and sound, as usual!

Heelweg

SAM JEWELL
 

I would like to use the Reflector to thank the organisers of the Heelweg Microwave meeting in The Netherlands. I know at least one of them subscribes!

I have just arrived hope and I'm still smiling after attending the meeting. I found it a most pleasant experience. A little different to our Microwave Roundtables, but everyone there was so friendly, enthusiastic and obviously enjoying the meeting. What a great, vibrant, atmosphere.

Thank you so much for a great weekend. I learnt a lot and enjoyed meeting so many friends again!

And if Ruud is reading this, thanks for the great hospitality.

See the photo of mine on my out-of-date website Mike... the heatsink I use barely gets warm with the 2 watt PA on it.
