Not looking good for me I'm afraid to say.

Having thought I might be OK, as we wont be having my grand-daughter over to stay that weekend, it's now less likely as my partners youngest daughter has decided to 'organise' a party for Kate's birthday (which is on Friday) involving various members of the family and Kate's Grandchildren coming to our place over the weekend.

As with all of these sorts of chaotic events organised by someone else at short notice I'm now not sure what's going to happen on Sunday. However, I may persuade Kate that what she will want to do is have a lie in on Sunday to get over the events and I'll nip out for a few hours to play radio.

However, it's likely to have to be a local spot and not a commanding altitude.

I also hope to do a trial of the larger dish in the week on a trip for work up to Ayr, on Tuesday evening, and a place between Edinburgh and Glasgow on Wednesday evening if I can get the gear sorted out on Monday.

PS My personal beacon is on 10,368.080 +/- a bit of drift and should be audible in Livingston if you find a clear spot to the east.

I hope to be QRV from Merryton Low IO93ad. I aim to be active from the top of the hill. 10GHz 1W 40cm. 2m talkback preferred. KST if I can be bothered with it. Mobile 07976-688359. Probably QRV morning only. May rove if keen enough...

If anyone wants to join me to experience the frenetic thrills of 10G contest operating, please contact me off reflector to arrange - you will be very welcome!

Will try to exhume the 6cms system -its still up the mast somewhere.
4W /DB6NT into 60cm offset .

Have given MK1 10GHz transverter 10W TWT and WG switching to Julian G3YGF but can RX on 10GHz if you want a 1 way into Dorset.
Julian does not have KST at home but is on 144MHz talkback when operational.

Only KST due to "fringe" coverage from digi TV - bloody wideband masthead preamps and "pro" installers.....have done for any meaningful 144MHz output from here.

I had a bit of a problem, in that I managed to leave the 12V battery at home in the rush to get off (late) to the hotel in Ayr on Tuesday but Ray (GM4CXM) very kindly helped me out by offering the use of his shack, poles, PSU and well equipped 2M station on Wednesday night.

We did try with Russ (G4PBP) but at nearly 400kM that was always going to be a challenge and then tried some other local contacts without hearing or being heard, other than Gordon (MM3YEQ) using his LNB and 1.3GHz receiver set up who heard us briefly.

Ray did put out a few calls on 144.175 and 144.550MHz and on KST but there was a suggestion that one of the local clubs was holding a DF Hunt, plus the Man U v Barcelona match, would mean that a few of the 10G equipped locals may not have been about.

I'll do some more work on getting the mounting for the dish sorted, and make a check list like I used to have for WBFM, so that hopefully I won't leave a vital component at home next time...

Cheers - Dave (G0DJA)

Good luck Richard... every time I've tried to operate from the trig point in recent years I've been asked to leave by the N.Park Ranger! There were no problems twenty years ago and we even took vehicles up there but, since the Mod/ TA have used it to play at soldiers, the Peak Park authority have been awkward.

Hopefully you should be OK since you are back pack portable and will be low profile.

I now use the grassy triangle about 1km south.

I'll be on the Yorkshire Wolds near Pocklington, IO93PW37 ... from 10am BST and will be monitoring 144.175MHz of course.
