I cannot login into the membership area of our website.
Yes it is a age thing as I can't remember my password.
Not certain who maintains our website but can I have a password reset please.

Evening all,

I am looking to purchase a 2M and 70CMs beam, and a rotator if anyone has any of these available.

07498 213585 or gm4wqg@...

Thanks
Simon

Thanks Dom, looks like I’ve got muddled along the way. Hopefully a few points will appear under the UKAC. Have a good Christmas. Bob

Hi Bob, unless you were just entering a checklog, then you can't claim points 'in both sections'; by 'both sections' I presume you mean the 10w section and the 50w section? You would have had to have entered a log for just one of the sections (10w or 50w) or otherwise it will have probably been discounted if you had tried to enter it for both.

Alternatively, if by sections you mean the 2m FMAC and the 2m UKAC, then these are two completely separate contests. This is just the result from the 2m FMAC. Below is a list off all the people from the club who entered logs for the 2m FMAC throughout 2021. This will not include people who have uploaded just checklogs.

Great news but looks like my entry went astray as I claimed for the club in both sections? It should have been even more points I think. Bob

I wasn't being remiss by not mentioning this achievement and passing on my congratulations to the club, I was just holding off from making the announcement until the 70cm FMAC results were release, which hopefully should be in the next couple of days and then I would have made it an even bigger announcement (hopefully).

However, seeing as it's now been mentioned, a huge congratulations to the entire club on your achievement.

Watch this space for a bigger announcement in the coming days.

Great showing from the Club. IO91 has done well in number of participants. Well done to everyone who took part.

And just as an experiment, I dropped my power down to 10w and then worked him again using my M6WHQ callsign.

I've just worked France, F5LMG on FT8 using my Diamond V2000 colinear.

Yes it’s been very lively this week and Spain. Ireland, various Scandinavian countries etc heard. I believe some with big antennas may have gone into Eastern Europe by way of conversation I heard. Bob G0VTA

I feel a bit like Peter Snow on election night with his Swingometer with this one, but things are looking promising.

I've just had a quick check of the logs entered for the RSGB 432MHZ FMAC and out of the 17 club members I heard on the air, including myself, 12 have entered logs in to the RSGB for the contest, so that's brilliant.

The total number of QSOs across those 12 logs came to 219.

Our closest rival, Gloucester AR&ES, who were sitting just 162 points behind us in 3rd place, have so far entered 3 logs totalling 40 QSOs.

Our second closest rival, Tall Trees CG, who were sitting in 4th place and 4,310 points behind us, have so far entered 5 logs totalling 42 QSOs.

Now points are awarded for distance and not volume, however, seeing as we have about 5 times the volume of QSOs than our nearest rivals, I think that we're in with a good chance of a positive result at holding on to that 2nd place.

Strangely enough, if we were to maintain this volume of enthusiasm and dedication all year round, I actually think we could give the Hereford Club a run for their money! Anyone up for that in 2022? It will of course require your dedication to the cause. 😁

Wow! Marc, what incredible bad luck!

You should have given me a shout and I would have come and pulled you out with the Land Cruiser. It would have probably made light work of it.

Thanks for trying, that definitely shows commitment and we now have another story to go down in SDARC history! 😊

Glad you're all OK and nothing damaged, other than pride.

See you tomorrow.

Hi All,

I'm so sorry for not getting to the party last night. I was all loaded up with yagi, mast, radio, sandwiches, torches, etc. and made my way to Uffington. Unfortunately, I missed the turning for the car park and ended up taking the next turning along. This is a track going up Knighton Hill. I realised I was in the wrong place when I got to the top so turned round at the end. I was running late so decided I would operate from the crest of Knighton Hill instead. I pull over and, unfortunately, my front wheels immediately burried themselves in deep mud. Once those wheels went in, they were not coming back out .....

I won't bore you with further details but I ended up calling out a 24 hour tow truck from Swindon to rescue me and am now £120 poorer. I was livid, can't believe my own stupidity.

Sorry again ....

Marc

The SSB session was strange with lots of huge QSB. G4FZN in IO94 was a good signal all evening.
I was called by 2 French stations and a PA but I didn't hear a whisper from GD or GM, nor did I hear anyone else working them. Unusual since I can normally hear one of the GDs even if I can't work them. Wonder if my location was too high and it was ducting lower down!

Well "rare DX" was about tonight. ... meaning I got my diary sorted and aerial up ahead of time!

My IC7000 - and my power meters were arguing about my o/p : set to 35w but reading 15w on fm and similar on ssb with compression!  
..... Another fine job it's got me into !!

In the circumstances, I was very pleased to work 13 in the fms with my in-loft collinear - all but YCC in IO91 ! 

I was even more contented to work yet another 13 on SSB using a 10m high 9 ele. ... especially when this list included a GD8 and an F1. That doesn't equate to 15w from "town" unless condx were up!
The odd bit was that I only managed Tony from the local crew!

I will submit the log tomorrow.
