ATV Activity Weekend 11/12 March 2017

Postby G8GKQ » Wed Jan 25, 2017 5:44 pm

Our next Activity Weekend is on 11/12 March. Please reserve the weekend in your diary now and start planning what equipment you will be using.

It would be great if we could get as many "Portsdown" Transmitters on the air as possible. I plan to operate one of the prototype units from Portsdown Hill....

Please post here with details of your planned activity for the weekend.

Thanks

Dave, G8GKQ

Hi All,

I plan to be out /P over the weekend 11/12th probably from IO94MJ but depends on local activity.
QRV most bands.

Turns out we are filming an ATV feature, including Portsdown, with Txfactor in Bristol on Saturday March 11th so will be "on air" and it will be great to get a couple of /p stations included, but maybe not focused on Dx working.

Also planning to go out on Sunday to some hill top in the southern part of England - pretty vague as I've not thought it through yet but I will be out...

Hi,
I will be around both days working 2m/70cm from my QTH in IO91RV - Houghton Regis - Beds.

Paths directly South are impossible under flat conditions due to local downs. Anywhere North/East/West is usually good especially NE out towards Lincolnshire.

Find me on http://www.dxspot.tv

I hope to be in from home - IO91IO on 2m and 70cm. Sorry nothing higher as my microwave system is currently undergoing a rebuild.

All being well should be on at Lane End IO90JA with 2m Tx/Rx 5W, 70cm Rx only and 23cm Tx/Rx 6W. This will be my only second outing on DATV and the gear is far from perfect ! Talk back via 2m or direct on 07762112271

all best John

Great - maybe work you but it's a long way but you should be able to work Rob M0DTS.

There's a few useful tools on the wiki when planning a /p operation - https://wiki.batc.tv/Mapping_tools

Also we are trying to build a database of sites here https://wiki.batc.tv/Directory_of_portable_sites - and there's a Google map where it's easy to drop a pin on any sites you know of https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/edit? ... 437475&z=6

Best DX OM :-)

Planning to have 146.5 (RB-TV), 437 (Digital and analog) and 10,367 (Digital). All from a Portsdown TX. Talkback on 144.75 MHz FM or DXSpot.TV.

On Saturday I will be in the Bristol area with the TXFactor filming. Activity tbd.
