Tuesday Night is Club Night – 30/05/23

Tonight we focused on 10m SSB courtesy of Jack M0PLS and his Discovery 599 transceiver and Buddipole in an inverted L configuration. With conditions reasonable Jack worked several countries via Sporadic E.

Some tests were also carried out in a vehicle mounted set up using an Anytone Ares ii and a Sirio 145 on a magmount. Some very strong signals received on 10m SSB as well as SSB on 27Mhz CEPT frequencies.

Meanwhile back in the shack Andy 2E1GQX fired up the Hytera MD785 and made QSOs via Phoenix DMR via GB7TC at Swindon.

Jon G0IUE made several CQs on 145.500 (2m) and worked Darren G1ERM from Swindon followed by Club member Mike 2E0OND.

Back at the DMR radio a change of operator with John G0JYL ‘navigating’ his way to the South West Cluster on GB7BS and working Neville G3LMO near Salisbury.

A good turnout despite being half term and a Bank Holiday week and an enjoyable time had by all.

No Brian G6HUI this week who was unwell and we wish him a speedy recovery.

Have a great week folks and enjoy the Sporadic E on 6/4 and 2m bands.
