ATV Activity Weekend 8/9 July 2017

Postby G8GKQ » Thu Jun 15, 2017 1:13 pm

The next ATV Activity Weekend is on 8/9 July, followed by another on 12/13 August, and then on 16/17 September (the weekend after CAT 17 at Finningley).

Please post details of your planned activity for 8/9 July here. There must be some of the 150 Portsdown transmitter builders who can give it a try!

Provisional at present; a small group will operate from our local hill Dunstable Downs.

I will be QRV on Saturday and Sunday afternoon, not decided locations yet but likely to be trying 5.6 and 10 GHz as well as the normal bands.

Dunstable Downs now freed up.

My 5GHz kit only just turned up so I'll be around on both days from the home QTH. Should have 5GHz ready for the next one.

I plan to go to Povington Hill, IO80PU near Lulworth in Dorset https://wiki.batc.tv/Lulworth_Ranges_-_Povington_Hill on Saturday afternoon.

Equipment will be limited following a recent change of car (although should be better in the long-term), so concentrating on 146, 437 DATV and 5.6 GHz FM.

It's unlikely for us Yorkshirites.. Lamfest at Elsecar on the Saturday and the microwave thingy at Finningley Radio Club location on Sat and Sun.. will keep some of us regulars busy.

Not definite yet, but GW3NWR/P will probably be at Esclusham Mountain, North Wales, IO83KB62HV on the Sunday afternoon, with a good takeoff from NNW to NE.

Current thinking is Saturday only and to go down towards the South Coast to work G8GKQ, G4GUO, G8JTT and maybe any French stations - Possibly at a new site near IO90LX.

Will have 146, 437, 5.6 and maybe 10GHz.

Talkback 144.170, 144.750 and Dxspot.

73
