Active November 23rd pm all day 24th and 25th


I am going to have a radio fest weekend this weekend, and I'm really hoping for some prop.

I've got the whole weekend with nothing else to do apart from mucking about on the radio emoticon

Its pretty unusual as theres normally something, some job or somewhere you've got to be that means theres only a limited amount of time available for radio. But this weekend I've put everything else on hold, and I'm spending the time working the radios.

If 11 metres is active I'll be on there for the most part, if not then theres Echo Charlie and if all else fails I'll be doing some ham stuff on HF, UHF and VHF emoticon

Dont fail to give me a shout if you hear me on 555 or EC for that matter.

Wooohooo! Only a few hours to go! emoticon emoticon

Well a good weekend all in all.

Not much on the freeband though it has to be said. 11 metres was just about as dead as they come all weekend. Only a very small opening, which I was lucky to hear. I made contact with a few Italian stations in contest and one Spanish station, before the band dried up.

Did some Echo Charlie work on 86 m and 45 m, but even 45 metres didnt last too long on the Saturday and although they were longish QSO's, they were only into Germany, Ireland and The Netherlands. Nice chaps and a good long chat mind.

Most of the weekends radio was done on ham bands, 20 metres mostly with many contacts, the most interesting was Lithunia.

Got interested in SOTA on 2 metres, which looks like good fun, so might have a go at some of that.

Looking forward to next weekend now as I've wangled the whole weekend for radio again! emoticon emoticon

This is really frustrating, no prop on hardly any HF bands, even 2metres is really quiet emoticon

Oh well keep shouting and fiddling with knobs emoticon
