ATV Activity Weekend 12/13 August 2017

Postby G8GKQ » Fri Aug 11, 2017 8:37 am

This weekend (tomorrow!) is another ATV Activity Weekend.

I plan to be active tomorrow (Saturday 12 August) from Povington Hill IO80PU near Lulworth in Dorset. https://wiki.batc.tv/Lulworth_Ranges_-_Povington_Hill

I hope to arrive on site at about 1000 and be there until 1500 or so. I will have 146 MHz DATV, 5650 Edit: 5665 MHz FM TV and 10367 MHz DATV. Talkback on 144.75 MHz FM.

On Sunday, Noel and I will be manning a BATC Stand and Portsdown Clinic at the FRARS HAMFEST near Wimbourne in Dorset http://www.frars.org.uk/cgi-bin/render.pl?pageid=1438. Please bring your Portsdown TX for some show and tell; we will be indoors near the cafe and bar.

Dave, G8GKQ

And I will be on the south side of Walbury Hil near Coombe Hill at IO91GI51WJ - I could go to the North side later if there is anyone about.

I also hope to arrive on site at about 1000 and be there until 1500 or so. I will have 146 MHz DATV, 5665 MHz FM TV and 10367 MHz DATV. Talkback on 144.75 MHz FM :-)

I'll leave GB3FT on test from my QTH beaming just west of South at 190 degrees

Access on 1249MHz 4Msps or analogue or 146.5MHz 333ksps and streaming to the BATC website.

If GB3FT is not on air, send 12301 on 144.750Mhz to turn on the tx for 1 hour, GB3FT will respond with K1 on 144.750 - note it gets streamed even if the tx PA is not turned on.

I also have 146.5MHz capability 5 watts to a 7 ele 10dBd gain yagi.

The Dunstable stations will be about as usual, I see both Noel and Dave have changed the 5GHz frequency to 5650 from 5665 is there a reason for this. or is it just a mistake.

Hi Arthur

My mistake. It is still 5665 MHz.

I went to Povington Hill near Lulworth today and with help from M0DNY worked G8GTZ/P at over 90km on 10 GHz (333KS, 32APSK 12 dB MER) and on 5.6 GHz FM ATV (P2).

Attempted 10 GHz with M0EYT but failed, although signals were visible on the analyser.

I didn't hear anyone on 144.750 here in Oxfordshire. Assume I was on the wrong side of the downs this weekend. Maybe next time!
