Please see Calendar and Forum for details of forthcoming events. All physical meetings postponed due to COVID-19. Single operator contests at BHRS now proceeding subject to max. six attendees and compliance with Government guidelines. Please leave your comments on our Forum so that we can plan for the future.
Following suggestions that we again try to establish an occasional SSB net for members, it has been proposed that we use 2 metres and 10 metres.
This will be at 1400 local time (1300 Zulu) TODAY 3rd of October, with G1KAR/P putting out the initial call on 144.325 MHz USB. We can repeat this once a month or more frequently subject to sufficient interest. G1KAR/P will acknowledge all calls and direct the net as appropriate.
Suitably equipped stations can also try 28.320 MHz USB from 1500 local after the net on 2m.
Please monitor GB3ZX from 1345 Saturday for any updates on the above schedule.
THE NET IS OPEN TO NON-SARS MEMBERS AND WE WELCOME THE EXCHANGE OF REPORTS.
Please see the Forum thread and leave any comments or suggestions that you may have.
G8DXU intends to run G1KAR/P on behalf of the society. Members are very welcome to visit BHRS during the contest, however social distancing needs to be maintained as per current guidelines.
Members with 6 metre SSB facilities are encouraged to participate in this event and make their own entries on behalf of SARS. G1KAR/P looks forward to hearing activity from local stations and will be very pleased to exchange reports.
We will be running 400W pep into a five element beam at the Beachy Head site.
Yet another fairly flat week although the weekend did improve things slightly. Best DX of the week probably FR4OO (Reunion), HI8AT (Dominican Republic), CE7VPQ, XR500M and XR33M (both specials from Chile) and V55JOTA (Namibia Scouts [and Guides, or are they all just Scouts in these days of political correctness?])
